sBehavior can sometimes get serious. We can become afraid of our dogs and feel overwhelmed with their unpredictable behavior.
Our Behavior Training Program identifies and addresses problem behaviors, targeting the root cause of behavior, not just the symptoms. We classify behavior problems and address them with clear and consistent communication. Critical to our success is the teaching of both On Leash and Off Leash obedience within this program.
Board & Train is a 6 weeks boot camp in an environment where your dog can gain from experiences of other dogs, people, and animals with structure and routine. We begin with an evaluation to determine eligibility for our program as we do have size limits and severity of aggression limits.
Trainers will be exposing your dog to new experiences in the first week to identify problem behaviors, evaluate for additional problem behaviors, and to assess the root cause of these behaviors. Living with and working with your dog one on one is the only true way to understand their behavior on this level. Paper evaluations and conversations provide us with an immense amount of information, but it is time we need to really understand your dog in whole.
Alongside learning On Leash and Off Leash obedience commands, we systematically incorporate behavior modification protocols to reduce and, in some cases, eliminate your dog's problem behaviors.
Expectations upon graduation of Behavior Training are On Leash and Off Leash Obedience commands. In cases where dogs have exhibited aggression, a physical leash is always used in conjunction with the e-collar as a safety precaution. Our trainers will work to reduce your dog's behavior to a degree. Behavior is genetic, environmental, and even breed specific. You dog's personality will not be changed, however you will see a noted reduction in problem behavior, experience a calmer dog, and have the confidence to control your dog safely and predict their behavior.
Due to the nature of behavior problems, this training is not offered through Group Class.
