Behavior Modification for older dogs (including adoptees) and those that have been abused, abandoned, or traumatized. Training includes modifying behavior problems such as pulling on a leash and leash aggression; barking at people walking into the house or out in public; jumping on people, counters, furniture, etc; stealing food and food aggression; separation anxiety; shyness, and recovery from trauma (abuse, abandonment, etc).
Training for sanctioned dog shows and other competitions. – If you are raising a competition show dog, we can start training early to ensure that your dog learns the cues and routines that can make it a winner. In Competition training all behaviors are broken down into small steps and put together as the training progresses.
