Fear, Aggression & Anxiety Package | Five Hours of Private Support

$650

WHO
Dogs who are generally anxious, aggressive, fearful of noise, people, their own shadow – you name it. They can have one trigger or many, we’re here to help! Ultimately, we’ll make a recommendation for you based on your goals and needs – you’re not expected to make a package decision yourself!

WHEN
Varies depending on your instructor. Contact us for details.

WHERE
Happy Dog Institute Headquarters
7924 Sweet Iron Ct SE, Suite 109, Olympia WA 98501

WHAT
We specialize in aggression and anxiety behaviors, and we’re here to help you and your dog live together more harmoniously. Sometimes, dogs just need a good boost of confidence or are starting to exhibit anxious, aggressive or fearful behaviors to certain triggers. For others, it’s progressed to the point  where you can’t take your dog anywhere because they bark at everything. Or maybe they spend the whole time shaking in their boots, or bark their head off and have a hard time settling when guests come over? (They better not use the bathroom and then come back out again!)

That’s where we come in. With a combination of weekly support sessions and hands-on training demos and support, we’ve put together this program to take the guesswork out of it all. While it’s impossible to create a “one size fits all” program, we find that this range of support allows us to really make some positive progress towards change, increase your sanity and create that happier dog we’re looking for!

What you get:

  • An initial 60 minute consultation get you help ASAP
  • Four hours of additional hours of support  for the duration of your package
  • The option to utilize in-person and/or virtual sessions to maximize your support hours and your success
  • Step-by-step homework and video review, as necessary
  • A training plan that makes sense, is humane and effective, fits with your lifestyle and that you’ll feel comfortable and confident doing (our job is to decrease your stress, not throw you into the lion’s den!)
  • Written homework
  • Materials printed and/or in PDF format for easy printing and tracking
