Behavior problems

I assume that most people get dogs because we want to enjoy our life together. Sadly, often it is not that simple. Even everyday situations such as going for a walk or receiving guests can become a struggle. Usually “problem” behaviors (they do make sense to the dog!) such as resource guarding, snapping, constant pulling on the leash or barking are caused by a negative emotional state (i.e. fear, anxiety).

Let me be honest with you: dog training is not magic and not all problems can be resolved completely. But we can always achieve a positive change and improve the quality of life for both your dog and for you.

What will we do?

  • During the first consultation we will analyse your dog’s behavior. In order to be able to work effectively, we must understand what causes the behavior. In case of aggression, there is often an underlying physical problem so I might ask you to consult a veterinarian.
  • Safety first: yours, your dog’s and of other people and animals around you. That’s why we will first introduce safety measures to prevent dangerous situations. This way we can reduce the stress for your and your dog will have fewer opportunities to practice unwanted behaviors.
  • We will create a training plan which takes into consideration both your dog’s needs and your availability.

I’m looking forward to working with you both!
