Have you ever wondered why your dog is barking, acting fearful or lunging on the leash?
ADT's Free Dog Behavior Evaluation will help you find out if your dog is experiencing a behavior problem and provide solutions and training options.
Learning why your dog is doing something will help you change your dog's behavior. ADT will explain what behaviors and signals your dog is displaying and what those signals indicate in your dog's evaluation.
Classification of Behavior Problems
ADT utilizes science-based theory of canine learning and social behavior to properly evaluate your dog's behavior. Humans are similar, yet distinctly different social animals.
Dogs absolutely experience emotions ranging from excitement to fearfulness, however dogs are not capable of "complex reasoning" unique to humans. This understanding allows us to practice behavioral protocols and learning methods that the dog can understand and apply.

Dogs presenting with obedience-based problems, dogs who are very young, and dogs with very low or moderate behavioral problems can be readily helped in our Board & Train or Private Classes On Leash program.
Dogs experiencing moderate to severe behavioral problems can experience a reduction in behavior and an increased prevention of behavior through our Behavior Training Board & Train program.
ADT combines reliable obedience with specific behavioral protocols to decrease harmful behaviors and provide you with an increased level of control through specific and dependable obedience commands, both on the leash and off the leash for added reliability.
