Help for your dog’s behavior problem is just a click away.

Is your dog’s behavior driving you up a wall?

Maybe he’s aggressive or reactive towards other dogs or people. Or he chews up the house. Or barks uncontrollably. Or has anxiety brought on by noises, car rides, you leaving the house…or maybe just everything.

First, take a deep breath. We can help. After all, we’re in the business of creating happier dogs and happier humans.

We offer behavior consultations, both in-person and via phone or video chat. We offer pre-made packages for specific behavior problems, and a class designed specifically for your dog’s Human Stranger Fear or Aggression.

Choose from a few effective options for addressing dog behavior problems:

Behavior Consultations

Two-Part Consultation, Two Hours Total

$180

During these private, one-on-one consultations, you’ll get practical solutions that get real results, in addition to peace-of-mind, sanity and a big sigh of relief. We use science- and reward-based methods to solve behavior problems, and we’ve got the credentials and experience to back it up.

We offer consultations in-person (you come to us), via phone, video chat and even via Facebook Messenger! Ah, the joys of modern technology. While certain behavior issues need to be addressed in-person in order to be effectively resolved, behaviors with a star (*) can be addressed in any other format.

We can work with you on virtually any behavior problem, including:

  • Aggression or fear towards people (we have a class for this, too!)
  • Barking (see our Behavior Packages for help with this)*
  • Kids & Dogs: preparing for and living with babies, young children and dogs*
  • Food aggression (AKA “Resource Guarding”) treatment and prevention*
  • Destructive chewing*
  • Separation Anxiety*
  • House training (We have a Behavior Package for this one, too!)*
  • Handling
  • Submissive urination
  • General anxiety
  • Impulse control
  • Puppy training (we also have a Puppy Class!)
  • Basic obedience training (check out our group Training Classes, too)
  • Help with unwanted behaviors like jumping on people, play biting and barking*
  • Dog-Dog aggression within the household (see our Behavior Packages for help with this)*
  • Dogs who are aggressive on leash (see our Behavior Packages for help with this)
  • And much more!

Please note that some of these behavior problems are best – and more effectively – addressed via a phone, email, video review and video chat (AKA “Remote Support”). We can discuss this when we schedule our consultation.

  • An initial, one-hour consultation

Barking Package: Initial Consultation + Four Hours of Follow-Up Training & Support

$410

What: Is your dog barking at everything? This package is helpful for two types of barking: if they’re barking at you when they want something (i.e. “Demand Barking”), or they’re barking at noises around the house, noises they hear outside or people coming to the door (i.e. “Watchdog Barking”). We’ve put together this five-hour training package to take get you some peace and quiet! You’ll get:

  • An initial, one-hour consultation
  • Four hours of follow-up support to get your pup on track
  • Written materials to help guide you through your training plan

What it’s NOT: If your dog barks at people or other dogs, this probably isn’t the package for you. Don’t worry, though, we can still help! If they bark at people beyond the door (and they’re very upset about having people in the house or getting approached when out and about), then you probably need our Human Fear & Aggression Class.

If they’re barking or reactive towards other dogs, either on or off leash (like on walk), then you can schedule a private consultation or purchase our Reactive Rover Training Package (Spring & Summer months only). Click here for information on Behavior Consultations, or click here to contact us.

Where: Once you purchase your package, we’ll contact you to schedule your first session. These are held at our office, about 8 miles south of Tumwater via I-5. After the initial consultation, we’ll schedule your remaining three hours of support in a way that gets you the help you need – fast.

Human Fear & Aggression Class

Ready to Get Started? Here’s What to Do:

1

Step 1: If you’d like to schedule a consultation, start by contacting us. If you need help specifically with house training, barking or dog-dog aggression, click here to learn about and purchase a Behavior Package. If you need help with Human Fear & Aggression, click here.

Otherwise, a consultation is the best place to start when you need some in-depth or customized behavior help. Or when a class simply won’t work with your schedule or with your dog. Consultations are two parts: a one-hour initial session and a one-hour follow-up, and cost $180 for both parts.

2

Step 2: We’ll contact you to schedule your consultation. We’ll also ask that you fill out some paperwork beforehand (don’t worry, it’s not much!) so we can prepare for your session.

3

Step 3: During our consultation, we’ll discuss your concerns and develop a customized, private training plan to get you and your dog.

Et voilà! We’re off to the races!
