Behavior Issues

Sometimes even the best-behaved dog acts badly and often this behavior seems to come "out of the blue." But behavior never occurs in a vacuum - there are always contributing factors triggered by some outside event(s) or stimuli. As a trained Certified Canine Behaviorist working with all kinds of dogs for more than a decade, I can recognize and sort out what's really going on.

With your input and through my observation and analysis, I'll customize a series of intervention techniques designed for your specific situation. Then I'll guide you through step-by-step instructions so you'll learn how to comfortably and effectively redirect your dog's actions and reactions, helping him or her feel less agitated or stressed.

While behavior problems can be difficult to overcome, there are almost always workable techniques that impact the situation and bring improvement. I can teach you to use effective methods that you will be able to use over time, while working with your dog. Call or email me now to set up a Consultation. Don't wait! Troubled behaviors rarely just disappear.
