Behaviour Modification

One on One in Person Coaching

Fear, Aggression, Leash Frustration, Resource Guarding & Isolation Distress

 

*If your dog has experienced a sudden behaviour change, we will require a vet check before proceeding

Reactivity & Fear Aggression

Does your dog lunge, growl or bark at other dogs or people? Are they over stimulated in public? Does the approach of people, dogs or novel objects scare them or overexcite them?

Handling a reactive or fearful dog has many challenges but when you book with us, you will work one on one with our senior trainer who specializes in fear and aggression. She will set both you and your dog up for success, develop a realistic management and safety plan and help build your confidence in training and handling your dog.

Reactivity Training Includes:

Aggression/Reactivity Towards People Inside and Outside the Home

(lunging, growling, barking)

Aggression/Reactivity Towards Dogs on or off Leash

(lunging, growling, barking)

Aggression/Reactivity When People or Dogs Walk by the House

(lunging & barking from windows/fences/balcony)

Fear of Strangers or Family Members

(including children)

Aggression/Reactivity Towards Moving Objects

(cars, bikes, skateboards, etc.)

Other Behaviour Modification

Includes:

Fear of Objects

(collar/harness, nail trimmers, lawn mower, vacuum, novel items etc.)

Noise Sensitivity

(loud vehicles, thunder, kitchen appliances, fireworks etc.)

Environmental Fears

(vet's office, car rides, different floor surfaces, noisy/crowded places, etc.)

Minor Separation Anxiety/Isolation Distress

(panic when a specific person leaves, panic when left alone, excessive chewing, self harm, eliminating and vocalizing when left alone)

Most true separation anxiety cases will be referred to trainers who specialize in this area. We are happy to help with minor cases or isolation distress (the dog just doesn't like to be alone, no attachment to one single person)

Minor Resource Guarding

(the need to protect anything they consider high value leading to moving away, hiding objects, growling, snapping or biting)

More severe cases will be referred to trainers who specialize in this area

What to expect when you book with us

We will begin with a Comprehensive Behaviour Modification Consultation which is generally around 90 minutes.

Consultations are designed so we can get to know you, your dog & your routines and so we can build a plan to fit your lifestyle. They are also great if you are unsure where to begin as we can then make a recommendation for an appropriate training package to fit your needs.

When we meet, we start by looking at your dog’s daily routine and see if we need to make any adjustments. From there we will discuss your current challenges to get a solid understanding of what is going on.

Next, we set some goals, management and safety strategies and begin creating a custom training plan.

We finish by going over the training plan to ensure it is manageable for you, show demonstrations where needed, answer any last questions and go over any homework to get started on before receiving your follow up notes and training plan via email.

Before we finish, we will book in any follow up appointment(s) if required.

It is recommended to book follow ups 1-2 weeks apart.

After the consultation, you will receive a training plan with step by step instructions, handouts and other educational tools. This will be sent within 4-5 days of your appointment unless otherwise specified.

We recommend writing down any questions before we arrive and also encourage taking notes, however, that is not required!

Follow ups

Follow ups are done in person and can be indoor or outdoor, though outdoor is preferred at this time (masks are required for all sessions throughout the pandemic)

Your first follow up is generally booked 1 week after your consultation.

Additional follow-up lessons are generally scheduled 1-2 weeks apart

They are great for those of you who prefer hands on help with the implementation of the training plan, have multiple skills to work on, refining your dog training skills or keeping on track with your training plan with pre-booked appointments.

It is recommended that all sessions are completed within 6 months of the initial booking to

ensure consistency in training

Sessions expire 12 months from initial booking

Please Note: We do not guarantee any results in training. Due to the nature of behaviour and all factors involved, time frames and progress will vary. Client compliance and completion of homework tasks is necessary for training plans to be successful.
