Behavioral Problems

With time, patience and the proper approach, many common behavioral problems can be addressed and solved.  Whatever the issue, we’ll work together to develop a plan for success.  Many of today’s behavioral problems can be attributed to “miscommunications” between the dog and the owner.  Unfortunately, many of us are under the assumption that our dog’s will, “grow out of it,” and we wait too long to address the issues, thereby allowing them to be reinforced and practiced, which can sometimes make them much more difficult to solve.  Behavior problems don’t go away on their own.  Often, they either stay the same or get worse.  If your dog is having a particular issue, we’ll evaluate the problem and develop and plan an guidelines to address it, together.
