We offer help for common (and not-so common) behavior issues like aggression toward people and/or other dogs, separation anxiety, over-excitement, resource-guarding, and fearfulness.
Behavior modification training investigates why your dog responds the way he does, as well as what happens just before he reacts. When we know what is likely to cause your dog to react negatively, we are able to intervene early and work to change the underlying cause of his response.
Behavioral training begins with an initial 2-hour meeting to evaluate your situation, gather background information, assess your dog's issues, and discuss your training goals. Using the information gathered during our initial meeting, we write a customized summary that includes recommendations and a training plan.
Private, in-home behavioral training is tailored to your needs: We can work on as many or as few issues as you like. Since most behavior issues occur in the home, we come to you. However, sessions may include outings to your vet’s office, dog park, pet store, etc.
Private training is available in the greater Winchester, VA area. Our trainer may travel longer distances for an additional travel fee.
