Our Behaviour Modification program is 6 weeks in length, ensuring that we have enough time to correct the behavioural issues required.

Behaviour Consultation $300

When your dog’s behaviour is out of control, we can help!Our Canine Behaviourist has over 20 years experience working with dogs with severe behavioural problems.

First, you need to understand that there is a significant difference between dog trainers and Canine Behaviourists. Dog trainers work with dogs that are exhibiting normal behaviour. They use obedience training to control the behaviour of the dogs they work with. In contrast, Canine Behaviourists assess and treat dogs with abnormal canine behaviour, including severe anxiety, extreme fears, phobias, inter-dog aggression and aggression towards people. Canine Behaviourists also have a post-secondary education in a relevant field.

Our Behaviour Consultations are designed to assess the root cause of behavioural problems that are occurring and provide you with a risk assessment and behaviour modification options.

Until the root cause of the behavioural problem is determined, training will not work, and can in fact put the dog or people at risk. Once we have confirmed the reason for the behaviour, a treatment program specific to your dog’s needs can be created.
