What Is Dog Behavior Training?

Dog behavior training is so much more than dog training! Dog behavior training combines a thorough understanding of dog behavior, canine learning theory, and hands-on dog training methods in order to create lasting behavior change. This is why our training methods have been referred by vets for over 26 years. It is applicable to all sorts of training needs, but is mandatory for the resolution of dog behavior problems such as aggression and anxiety.

 This style of training is particularly effective for the follow training needs:

  • Aggression (including human aggression, dog aggression, resource guarding, etc.)
  • Anxiety (including separation anxiety, nervousness, fearful dogs, etc.)
  • Hyperactivity (including “uncontrollable” dogs)
  • Poor manners (including jumping, counter surfing, marking, housebreaking, etc.)
  • Dogs of all breeds and ages, including puppy training and multi-dog households
