What follos are area-specific training packages we have done in the past. Of course, your goals may be somewhat different than what is offered. You may be bringing a new baby into a home with an adult dog that has known no children. Or, they may be bugging out whenever they see a bus on your daily walk. Training sessions are customized to your objectives and your dog.
Feisty Fido Reactive Dogs are our Specialty!
Is your dog aggressive and reactive to other dogs especially when on
leash ? Does he lunge and bark at dogs on your walks and put on an embarrassing
display? Learn how to get this problem under control so that you can enjoy
your walks again. Let us give you the tools for teaching your dog more
appropriate on leash manners around other dogs so that you can both enjoy stress free walks.
Do you have one of those dogs that is never tired and is always in trouble.
Does he dig, bark, jump, chew and otherwise act like a canine hurricane on a rampage?
We can help you get control of your wild child and help you teach him basic manners
for living civilly with people. Teach your dog to sit politely for greeting, come when
called, stop barking, mouthing and otherwise acting out of control around visitors and family members.
Do you have a shy dog that came from a shelter, rescue or abusive
situation? Is it hard to walk your dog because she is afraid of
everything? Does your dog have issues with men, women, other dogs,
children? Is she afraid to be left alone? We can help you and your
dog learn to work together as a team, conquer her fears and learn
to cope with the environment that you live in. With time and effort
you can give your shy dog the confidence and help she needs to have
a good life !!
