Do you use obedience to manage your dogs behavior, but find that it's not really helping? Without getting to the root cause of your dog's behavior, managing them with obedience can actually make it worse! This is why I use behavior modification, based off of a system called Training Between the Ears (TBTE).
It's all about clear communication, consistent boundaries, and rewarding your dog for their good behaviors, all while teaching them to enjoy relaxation! You will get more natural & reliable results this way. Once you teach your dog how to be more optimistic about the world, as well as how to enjoy relaxation, then obedience training can be just for fun!
What types of dogs would benefit from behavior modification?
* Fearful dogs - We will use perception modification to help your dog feel safe, and change how they view the world around them.
* Reactive dogs (towards other dogs and people) - A lot of this is created by frustration, and insecurity. Let's decrease your dog's frustration, by creating consistent boundaries, and help them feel more secure in everyday life.
* Anxious/ hyperactive dogs - Most hyperactive dogs just don't know how to relax. We will melt away your dogs anxieties, and teach them to enjoy relaxation!
* Let's not forget about puppies! This is perfect for them as well - We will teach your puppy how to be a relaxed, well mannered pup right from the start!
As you can see, this system really is perfect for any dog!
If you are interested in obedience training for your dog(s), and/or off leash recall (come when called) training, I can help you with that as well!
