Living with an aggressive dog is stressful. Never being certain what will happen on your daily walk, potential injuries, vet bills, legal consequences, and so on. You don't have to live like this. Our comprehensive dog rehabilitation program can resolve your dog aggression problem. We are specialized in resolving dog aggression of all types and will do all we can to give you the dog you always wanted. We have over 13 years of experience in the resolving aggression in dogs and can handle any case.
We offer free, in-person evaluations to determine if this program is right for your situation. Many cases our clients have brought to us did not require this kind of comprehensive approach and could be resolved in the homes of the owners. Let us evaluate how severe your problem truly is. What may feel very serious to you, may not be as bad as it seems. Many of our clients have been surprised how easy some aggression cases could be resolved‐especially with younger dogs, it's often much easier than you may think. Let us help you keep your family together!
Our attorneys won't let us guarantee outcomes but to date we have always succeeded in resolving aggression in dogs where the owners have followed our guidance. If you trust us, we will help you keeping your family together.
- We offer a free, in-person evaluation of your dog to determine what kind of behavior your dog demonstrates; this free, initial consultation is non-binding with no risk to you.
- Upon completion of the training your dog will no longer be aggressive.
- Average resolution time is three to four months but may vary (shorter or longer). We will work with you as long as it takes to fix the problem.
- We film each training session and make the footage available to you in a private YouTube playlist so you can review everything we did, share with friends or family if you like and have a memory of your dog's transformation. (Most of our clients love this but it is optional. If you'd rather have us not film anything just let us know)
- Free lifetime support for the dog the program was purchased for; including one free follow-up per month after program completion (by request).
- We may board your dog for an initial period with one of our behaviorists before your dog returns home for phase two of the rehabilitation. Boarding as part of this program is free of charge (additional fees for special needs dogs may apply; i.e. special dietary or medical needs, etc.). This won't be necessary in most cases.
How this training works:
- First, we build a personal relationship with your dog so we can work together and help you effectively. This usually takes 2-3 weeks.
- Second, we teach your dog foundational skills. That means your dog learns a marker system so we can communicate more clearly, re-learns to understand the leash and collar as informational tools and not frustrating restraint devices, and learns to relax on command. All these foundational skills are required to resolve your dogs aggression. This usually takes 3-5 weeks.
- Third, we may develop a more effective rewards game as a high-value reward for your dog during training. This will depend on your dogs drives and desires.
- Forth, we tackle the aggression at its core. These are not superficial fixes. Your dog will begin to change in front of your eyes as we teach to make better choices.
- We will meet weekly for a 1-2 hour session at a local park where we work through the phases and practice with you.
- You will have homework between each session, which will consist of more repetitions of the last sessions practices.
- The training is highly motivational and engaging and you will see the relationship between you and your dog become stronger than you ever thought possible. It is a wonderful experience and we can't wait for you to have it.
- The equipment used during this training is the following: 1.5-2 inch wide, flat collar (depending on the size of your dog), 18-ft tracking leash, 6-ft leash, slip-lead, treat pouch, training treats, tug toys (depends on your dog). We will have all equipment for sale but you are happy to bring your own. Please don't buy anything prior to the first class. We would hate for you to unnecessarily spend money on the wrong items.
- For people aggressive dogs we many temporarily need to use a muzzle for safety and better control collars but this is rare. Avoiding this is the goal of the first step listed above.
- Launching at other dogs or people on walks.
- Staring at other dogs.
- Chasing everything that moves with intention to kill.
- Has drawn blood from dogs or people.
- Has been recommended for euthanasia by a veterinarian (don't do it without talking to us first!).
- You have been issued an animal restraining order for your dog's behavior/actions.
- Unsafe around other dogs or people in general.
