To help eliminate problem behavior, we offer several dog training programs depending on the severity of your dog’s behavior.
Unruly Dog Behavior
Some common undesirable behaviors can be addressed through class attendance, private lessons or a Train & Stay program. These include behaviors such as:
- Jumping on people
- Running away
- Pulling on leash
- General unruliness

For More Complex Dog Behavior Problems
More troublesome or complicated issues cannot be dealt with in a group class environment. These include behaviors such as:
- Destructive chewing
- Chronic house training issues
- Leash reactivity
- Aggressive acts toward people and/or dogs
- Dog fights
- Or anything else you find objectionable
For issues such a these, we recommend starting with a Behavior Consultation. Prior to the consultation, it is recommended to have a veterinary examination. You will also need to fill out our Behavior Intake Form, which we will go over together when we meet.
