Bully Breed behavioural Consultation

Training Consultation

In Home Assessment

$180+hst

Training consultations are available in your home and at your convenience.  The consultation will consist of discussing the issues you are having with you dog in detail, your dog’s history, then we will go over a general training outline that will specifically address the issues. This will last 1.5 hours. All training programs are customized to fit you, your dog and your lifestyle to ensure success!

During the assessment I will be consulting with both you and your dog to get a good understanding of your relationship and to learn what type of training and education you both will benefit from to create the lifestyle you crave. During the lesson you will learn tips, tricks and techniques to help you to connect with your dog by building a solid foundation based on mutual trust and respect.  By the end of the consultation  you will have a better idea of how to clearly communicate with your dog as well as the information needed to make an informed decision for the next steps of training.

Puppy training is prevention training, we teach our puppies from the start what we want by rewarding behaviors we like and setting up their environment to make it easy for them to succeed!

Behaviors that we may find undesirable are usually completely normal and natural behaviors for your dog. All the above behaviors are not problems for the dog’s but more so problems for us. This program focuses on changing those behaviors and replacing those with new behaviors and giving your dog's enrichment. This will help you to build solid communication skills with your dog, teach healthy boundaries and learning how to enrich their lives.

 

These behaviors can be prevented (when they are puppies) and modified with positive based methods to help your dog make better choices. If we would like our dogs to behavior differently, we need to set up their environment to make it easy for them to succeed and teach them what we want! Punishing our dog for acting like a dog is not only unfair, but it can quickly deteriorate the bond we have with them. 

dog aggression and fear

Reactivity/Aggression/Fear

Email for package pricing

This program is for dogs that may exhibit aggression/anxiety/fear responses/reactivity toward dogs and/or people, resource guarding, separation anxiety, etc. We work on changing your dog's CER (Conditioned Emotional Response) to their triggers. 

This program works to help build confidence in your dog and change the way your dog feels about a trigger, and replacing old unwanted behaviors with new desirable ones.  A trigger is anything that causes your dog to react. After determining your dog's 'triggers' we work on desensitizing them to those triggers by pairing up the things that previously caused them to react with positive things such as treats and toys. We carefully increase the intensity of the triggers, changing your dog's emotional response, thus changing their behavior. We use controlled set ups for real life situations. 

In addition to results by the end of one of the programs you will have the knowledge on how clearly communicate with your dog, understand how the learn continue to manage their behaviour.
