Household Manners:

At your wit’s end with unruly behavior?  Is your dog chewing inappropriate items, jumping on everyone, nipping, house-soiling, and more?  A session or more will be designed based on your specific needs to help you manage and teach your dog appropriate behavior and help you understand what outlets can be useful to meet his needs and yours.  (1-4 sessions, 60-75 minutes each)

Basic Training:

Is your lifestyle too busy to commit to a weekly class schedule?  Learn how to teach your dog manners and basic cues in a customized program to fit your schedule.  You will learn the basics of how dogs learn, how to use reinforcement to get the behavior you want, and what to do to get rid of unwanted behaviors.  You will learn how to train your dog to sit, down, attention, come, stay, wait, leave it, sit politely for greeting, and give.  (approximately 4 sessions over 2-4 weeks, 60-75 minutes each)

Behavior Problems:

Sessions cover behavior issues not covered by Household Manners and Basic Training.  An initial consultation is required (60-90 minutes) for a complete history, goal identification, and solutions to be considered.  A write-up to include diagnosis and prognosis, management plan, and treatment plan will be provided.  Follow-up meetings may be required to ensure safe and proper implementation of the plan.
