Dog training and behaviour modification is done in the comfort of your home and surrounding area (parks, trails etc).
We use Behaviour Modification to work with dogs that are aggressive or fearful towards people, other dogs and objects. This will take the stress out of their lives so that these triggers don't rule their emotions or yours. If your dog has bitten a person or another dog we can work with you and your dog to reduce the stress that leads to these behaviours. We use Classic Conditioning and TACT (Touch Associated Clicker Training) methods to change the behaviour of your dog.
We use Behaviour Modification to help dogs that are Aggressive or Reactive to things that stress them out such as a vacuum, cars, unfamiliar people, car rides, other dogs, buses, trucks, snowmen etc.
Aggressive Dogs Characteristics
Dog to Dog or Dog to Person Aggression
Aggressive dogs will lunge and try to bite another dog or person because of sight, noise or smell. An aggressive dog that is going to attack will show signs of intent by doing one or all of the following; have alert ears facing forward or pinned back, wrinkle the snout, curl their lip, bare their teeth, raise their tail above their back, pillow the fur around the shoulders or hind quarters and sometimes the length of the back, growl or stare eye to eye. It does not matter what caused these reactions, the best thing you can do is condition the dog to not react under these circumstances.
Reactive Dog Characteristics
Your dog will lunge, jump, bark, whimper or pull on their leash when they are reactive. They could be reactive to a number different stimulus such as other dogs, people, loud noises, motor vehicles etc. This condition can cause your dog to experience stress or anxiety that will shorten their lifespan and make life miserable in certain situations for your dog and be a source of anxiety for yourself.
