Behavioral Training & Assessments 

360 analysis tailored for your dog
Behavior training usually begins with an assessment and finding your dog's distance of reactivity, and then we begin a management plan. Management allows us to enter a highly stimulating environment with your dog under threshold, and work on a stimulus that you wouldn't normally be able to tackle. Management looks like walking your dog through a situation at an appropriate distance, communicating, and rewarding them every step of the way. 

Environment drives behavior, reinforcement drives behavior, and communication drives behavior: we need these in order to heal your dog's emotions that are driving their reactive behavior. 

Once we are able to enter the environment successfully and at a suitable distance, training begins. The training is the part of behavior training that is sustainable and does not always include management. This is where your dog takes the lead and is confident in their decision-making in a once-triggering environment. 
 
The most important part of the training process is YOU.
Being fully dedicated to the journey of training your dog is what yields results. 
 
Behavior training is for dogs with behaviors that need a little extra attention. These behavioral concerns can include: reactivity, redirection, biting, excessive barking, guarding (food, toys, people), humping, and more. If your dog is exhibiting something not listed, don't hesitate to contact me.
