Private Lessons
(Behavior Modification)

$75 - $100 per hour

You must contact us to book any and all private lessons. We need to know what is required ahead of time so we can work out a program for each individual dog.
Fear, Aggression, and Anxiety – Behavior Modification for Dog.
We’ll help you help your dog overcome fear, aggression, hyperactivity, and destructive behavior without the use of force, intimidation, or pain.

Common Behaviour Issues

Reactivity, fear and aggression towards other dogs
Reactivity, fear and aggression towards strangers, children, or inanimate objects
Separation Anxiety
Handling Sensitivity (grooming, touching, nail trimming, touching)
Resource Guarding (protectiveness towards toys, bones, or stolen objects)
Territorial Behaviour (barking at the doorbell)

What We Help You With

Understanding why your dog is behaving the way it does
Teaching you the underlying principles of how to humanely and effectively treat the issue
Training you to implement the exercises and protocols required to help your dog over the long-term

Key Principles

Focus on the dog’s emotional attitude, not its behaviour – Helping an animal overcome fear and aggression requires slowly teaching the dog to tolerate, and eventually like what it currently is afraid of or hates.  Punishing a dog using a choke or shock collar may stop barking and lunging but it does not change the dog’s emotional attitude towards whatever it doesn’t like. Therefore, punishment is not an option.
Set the dog up for success – Don’t put the dog in a situation where it rehearses bad behavior, and reward the dog for making good choices.
Manage the environment – Don’t put the dog in an environment where its triggers are too intense for it to handle.
Empower owners – Long-term behavioral modification requires consistency and patience.  Our goal is to train owners so they become as good at behavioral modification as we are.
Approaches used:  Classical Counter-Conditioning, Systematic Desensitization, Differential Reinforcement of Alternative Behavior, Operant Conditioning with Functional Rewards

With respect to Private Lessons

Please know that aggressive behavior and dogs that are hard to handle are the most common issues, we do work on several other issues that you may be having a hard time with. Please list your concerns on the contact form so we can work out a program that suits your individual needs!

***If you require "private" sessions with one of our trainers with respect to behavioral concerns or more advanced one on one training, please feel free to contact us.
