Canine Behavior Problems
Some behavior concerns are too involved and/or serious to be dealt with in a group setting. In such cases private in-home training allows for a much more thorough and comprehensive approach to retraining. When working with dog owners, each client and case is met with individualized attention and concern. Consultations are conducted at the client’s home, as I feel this allows for a greater opportunity for a thorough assessment of the concerning behavior(s) and the contributing factors.
If your dog is exhibiting any of the following behavior problems, I can help. Please call me to discuss your dog’s specific training needs or to schedule a private behavior consultation.
Serving Saint Paul, Minneapolis and the surrounding metro.
|Aggression directed towards people/children||Dog-on-dog aggression|
|On-leash aggression||Pulling on leash|
|Resource guarding||Food aggression|
|House soiling/potty training||Growling|
|Not able to settle/relax||Difficult to groom/brush/clip nails|
|New puppy consults||New child with dog consults|
Each behavior case is met with a comprehensive assessment and is then guided through a detailed, individualized retraining program. Emphasis is first placed on educating the dog owner in a better understanding of the behavior problem, and better teaching and management skills. I then take these skills and teach you how to successfully apply them to your dog’s retraining program. Equal emphasis is placed upon empowering both the owner and the dog with the skills and tools that they need to succeed.
On average a behavior consult takes two hours to complete, but could be shorter depending on the complexity of the behavior concerns. In-home behavior counseling and training services are available throughout the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/Saint Paul Metro) & surrounding areas.
Clients are given continual and unlimited support as they progress through a retraining program. This is done through phone and/or e-mail conversations at no additional charge.
Private behavior/training sessions can be scheduled Monday thru Sunday.
I have over 30 years of training experience and continued education working with behavior and temperament/emotional concerns. I have studied with many top dog and animal trainers, animal behaviorists and veterinarians in the US, Canada, The United Kingdom and from around the world. I have also attended many classes through the Life Learn Program at the Ontario Veterinary Collage, University at Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Today I still continues to attend classes, clinics and workshops to ensure I stays attentive to the most current knowledge in the science of behavior and teaching.
