Behavioral Training

 People often misinterpret what their dogs do and why they do it, and end up trying to correct a symptom without addressing the cause. With behavior-focused training, I’ll teach you the real causes behind the behaviors and how to fix them. Any bad behavior can be remedied, from barking at strangers to poor behavior on the leash to aggression towards humans and animals.           Behavioral training is more than just teaching the dog. I will also work to teach you, the owner, how to understand what your dog is trying to communicate to you and how you can communicate back in a way that your dog will understand.  I’ll help you identify what’s causing your dog’s anxiety and show you how to reduce that anxiety, making your dog happier and more well-balanced.
