Behavioral Counseling

We support the Association of Professional Dog Trainers position statement that “(emphasizes) rewarding desired behaviors and discouraging undesirable behaviors using clear and consistent instructions and avoiding psychological and physical intimidation.”

Our goal is to help your pet achieve Good Citizen status by:

  • Accepting a friendly stranger
  • Sitting Politely for Petting
  • Allowing Grooming and handling
  • Walking on a loose lead
  • Sit and Down on Command and Staying in Place
  • Coming When Called
  • Restrains Reaction to Another Dog
  • Restrains Reaction to Distraction

We also manage acute problem behavior by giving you tools to maintain safety, interrupt escalating behavior, identify and avoid triggers and apply appropriate training techniques to make your pet a good neighbor.

We can help you introduce your pet to a new baby and help your dog love visiting us!
