Behavior Modification Training addresses many unwanted behaviors. Many behaviors occur only in the home, another location, or under certain circumstances. Your best chance for success is to train in that environment by recreating those circumstances. Polite Greeting of Guests and Pool Training are examples of behaviors that need to be taught in your environment. Although most dogs can swim, they need to know where the stairs are to know the way out.
Every dog is unique and has unique positive and not so positive behaviors. Jacqueline’s experience at the zoo has taught her how to think out of the box. Training ahead for veterinary appointments, grooming sessions, and possible overnight boarding (with friends or a facility), helps your dog when they need to go to any of those places. Using Positive Reinforcement and Behavior Modification, we develop a special training plan that meets your specific goals.
We address your concerns about your pet’s behavior and offer positive and alternative ways of working with your pet to obtain positive results. Communication between you and your dog or other pet is key to getting the behavior you desire. We will use a behavioral management plan to address and overcome unwanted or unpleasant behaviors.
We believe in increasing your dog’s confidence as many problem behaviors dogs exhibit are simply a lack of confidence. We can begin working on this before starting your dog in a group class. Positive Reinforcement ensures that your dog will repeat behaviors that give them positive results.
