BEHAVIOUR CONSULTING 1:1 DOG TRAINING

As a BCSPCA Animal Kind accredited company we are a team of certified professional trainers. We work with clients to help manage and modify problematic behaviours in dogs related to fear, anxiety, excitability, and aggression. We help to identify the cause of your dog’s problematic behaviour and then create a customized behaviour modification plan, teach you how to carry it out successfully, and follow up to help you progress through your training plan along the way. We address unwanted behaviours through ethically transparent procedures using the principles of positive reinforcement in order to resolve and manage the issue. We do not use equipment or procedures that are designed to suppress, correct or punish behaviour. We provide effective and humane training plans and behaviour modification.

• Fear, anxiety, excitability, and aggression.

• Newly adopted dog.

• Nuisance Behaviours: jumping, counter surfing, demand barking, etc.

• Resource guarding: toys, food people, spaces (possession aggression).

• Separation anxiety.

• Excitement and hyperactivity.

• Phobias (to noise, nail trimming etc.)

• Therapy or Service Dog certification preparation.

• Re-socialization with people or dogs

• Bite/Risk Assessment

• Animal Control Bylaw Assessment

Reactivity (excitement, frustration, barking and lunging at other dogs)

Go to our Reactivity Training Page to book a Reactivity Consultation.

Your initial consultation is 90 minutes in our classroom or in your home. The time frame for behavior modification relies on a variety of factors. For complex behaviour issues, multiple behaviour issues, multi-dog households, or if your dog has had no previous training, we recommend a minimum of two lessons. Behaviour modification plans are most successful with one or more follow-up lessons to progress to the completion of your training plan. Your trainer will recommend the number of follow-up lessons appropriate for your specific behaviour modification plan during your initial consultation but you are under no obligation. We aim to offer you the most efficient training plan possible and assist you as much or as little as you and your dog need to resolve the problematic behaviour. 

During a comprehensive Behavior Consultation, your trainer will:

• Get to know your dog with an in-depth and thorough behaviour history online interview.

• Observe, evaluate, and analyze the motivations behind your dog’s unwanted behaviours.

• Discuss your goals and concerns and help you understand your dog’s behaviour.

• Develop and implement behaviour change protocols and recommend manageable solutions.

• Introduce training concepts and implement strategies that begin during the consultation.

• Discuss safety and management strategies

• Provide you with a written behaviour modification plan and recommendations for future training and management.
