Feisty Fido

Does your dog bark at other dogs while on leash? Does he seem overly exuberant and out of control as you approach people, bikes, or skateboards? Don’t worry, we can help! Dogs like this need to learn how to:

  • Feel safe- Most dogs are barking at other dogs out of anxiety or excitement. We’ll figure out why your dog is barking and how to keep her more calm.

  • How to behave appropriately with distractions nearby- Instead of barking, we can teach your dog to look at you instead, walk calmly at your side, or interact appropriately with the other dog if appropriate.

  • Training starts with our teacher dogs in a safe, quiet environment, then moves out into the world.

Positive reinforcement, patience, and lots of practice is needed for success. You will become an expert at reading how dogs communicate through body language. Each dog is unique, so you’ll learn to be an advocate for your own dog’s special needs. Private training geared towards you and your dogs needs.

$255. package includes initial consult and three follow up sessions. Or a flat fee of $75 per hour . Students who have taken the initial package can follow with half hour sessions for $50.  Follow up training sessions are required for success. Online consult form must be filled out online or we can mail a paper copy before an appointment can be scheduled.
