Aggression and Fear Behavior Modification Services
We provide help with aggression cases. Any situation, breed of dog and level of aggressive behavior. We use management, education and understanding, as well as proven scientific methods to teach you how to work with your dog. There is no reason to use harsh, painful methods to correct inappropriate behaviors in dogs. Regardless of breed or if you have worked with other trainers who's methods may have "failed". Our philosophy is to find what works and help you maintain a safe learning environment for you and your dog. Several methods using painful tools such as Electric Collars, Prong Collars and "Pack/Alpha" Theory's can be detrimental to the relationship with your dog as well as the mental and physical state of your pet.
Behavior MODIFICATION for fear and aggression Lessons
Our Methods for working with "Aggressive/Fearful" dogs are Counter Conditioning/Desensitization using the B.A.T. model (Behavior Adjustment Training) formulated by Grisha Stewart. As well as Scientifically proven Positive Reinforcement methods using clicker marking and reward. Several studies have proven methods using reward based training to have the most reliable effect with behavior adjustment by creating a working relationship with a foundation of trust between dog and handler. Fostering a positive association with situations and building confidence in a reactive, fearful or aggressive dog results in a pet that will be calmer, and more reliable in public settings.
