“Change is the only constant – Lucretius.” And change may be huge or small, but it is constant. For behavior to change, it must be worthwhile to do so. We all behave to get or get away from things or situation in lives, similarly for our 4-legged family members too. By teaching new skills, we teach our furry friends how to overcome obstacles. And providing control, offering choices to make the right behavior easier.
The Behavior Change Program is conducted by our knowledgeable trainers with an in-depth understanding of sound behavior change procedures. First, we change the environment to change behavior, with positive reinforcement on the forefront and adhering to the least intrusive and minimally aversive approach (LIMA).
“There is no problem behavior, but problem situations” – Dr. Susan Friedman.
Common behavior issues such as:
- Aggression, in context, biting incidences and inflicting puncture wounds on dog to dog and/or dog to human
- Excessive Barking
- Fearfulness, in context; hiding when going for walks, running away when someone is approaching, etc.
- Jumping on People
- Potty Training
- Pulling on Leash
- Resource Guarding
- Separation Anxiety
And the list goes on. Speak to our trainers on the behavior issues you are facing and it might not be what you think it is!
