Meeting individually is often the best option to directly address behavioral problems that aren't able to be thoroughly covered in group classes. We spend our time working exactly on the specific issues at hand. Often we begin work at our private training field in Felton, a 5000+ sq ft turf field designed for dog training. I specialize in dogs who go over threshold easily-be it to aggression, frustration or general reactivity; and high energy, high drive dogs.
Behavior problems I address include:
aggression (to humans, other dogs or animals)
reactivity to other dogs
manners in the home
barking & more
Private lessons can also be a great way to focus on specific obedience skills, advanced Nosework practice, IPO tracking, competition preparation and more. Lessons can be scheduled Tuesday through Saturday.
Please fill out our Behavior Questionnaire to get started.
Initial Behavior Consultation: $150 Includes 1.5 hour meeting where we go over a complete history, perform a behavior evaluation, practice management techniques and start specific training for long term change.
