AGGRESSION IN DOGS MASTER COURSE

Does your dog exhibit "stranger danger"?  Does he get grouchy if you come near his toys or food bowl?  Maybe you have a multi-dog household and wish they would be better friends? Or maybe your perfect pooch at home gets riled up on walks when she sees another dog. Let's work together so your dog can put her best paw forward!

2019 FAMILY PAWS PARENT EDUCATOR

Family Focused. I work with expectant families and their dogs to pro-actively prepare for baby's arrival and beyond, focusing on successful strategies and proofed behaviors for an uneventful and smooth homecoming.  Likewise for families with toddlers, that may need coaching and training to maintain and promote a safe and inclusive environment for everyone.

FEAR FREE CERTIFIED PROFESSIONAL

 Most dogs are not wild about going to the vet, groomer or having their teeth brushed and their nails trimmed. The Fear Free movement aims to reduce fear, anxiety & stress with husbandry and veterinary procedures, and as a Certified Fear Free Professional, I'm here to help. Let's develop a plan that prepares your dog and encourages both active & passive participation and sets up everyone for success! Training can be geared entirely towards this important goal and it's never too late to start.

Training Principles

FORCE-FREE TRAINING

image12

Force free. No shock, prong or pinch collars! No leash pops, "alpha rolls" shake cans or spray bottles. Let's work together to teach your dog desirable behaviors and maintain and build a  trusting and affectionate relationship.

POSITIVE REINFORCEMENT (+R)

image13

Motivation is key. What motivates your dog and inspires discretionary effort?  Is it food, a game of tug, an opportunity to sniff?  Positive reinforcement training rewards the behaviors that are appropriate and increases the likelihood that the behavior will occur  in the future.

EACH DOG, A STUDY OF ONE

image14

Each dog is unique. Breed, epigenetics  prior training history, and a host of other variables may affect a dog's temperament, ability to focus and train and behavior as a companion animal. Nevertheless, it is vital  to work with each dog as an individual and tailor sessions as such.
