Problem Behaviors

Shirley and Jackson work on giving mom attention while on leash during a custom training session

What is problem behavior training? This is training for clients whose dogs have common problem behaviors that are not indicative of high overarousal, shyness/fear, anxiety, reactivity, and/or aggression, such as:

  • house training
  • crate training
  • jumping
  • nipping
  • chewing
  • counter-surfing
  • begging
  • bolting
  • not coming when called
  • excessive/nuisance barking (no issues of fear, anxiety or aggression)
  • digging
  • pulling on leash
  • general unruly behavior

How does it work? All clients must complete a training questionnaire prior to booking a consult appointment; the process begins with an initial consult of up to 90 minutes in length to take a full history, make observations and diagnose the problem, as well as give first steps for management and training. Treatment is then handled in subsequent training sessions based on a package, or in a la carte sessions. Training sessions are 60 minutes in length. If you have more than one dog, more sessions may be needed than fewer to work adequately with all your dogs.

Value-added services included in your training package:

  • Follow-up emails after each session with clearly outlined objectives and resources.
  • No additional charge for in-between session support! We welcome your emails, texts and phone calls to answer your questions and hear how well you’re doing so you can be even more successful when we aren’t in person with you!

What does it cost?*

  • Initial consult required for all new clients @ 90 minutes: $125
  • $85 for a la carte sessions or SAVE with packages (60-minute sessions after the consult has been completed):
    • $160 for 2 sessions
    • $320 for 4 sessions
    • $480 for 6 sessions
  • NOTE: Assistant fee of $20 per session may be required if we need help with a training scenario.

Our approach has helped many dogs and their people live more harmoniously; contact us to learn what we can do for you!

*A travel fee may apply depending on location as we do travel to you for all training; send us your location’s address along with your inquiry if you need a quote.

  1. I have a 2 1/2 yr rescue. She is very shy with people and especially men. Also, she has recently developed leash aggression. She has gone from very friendly to now acting aggressive. Play has also gone from going very well to now well for half the time but on other occasions she plays afraid.

    1. Hi Ninette,

      We do specialize in these sorts of cases, but it will require Behavior Modification training rather than Problem Solving. I can send you the questionnaire to get started if you’d like us to help you. Thank you for reaching out.
