Behavior Consulting/Mini Programs
Behavior consulting is a one on one session with the trainer and client(s), within the home of the client or at a mutually specified location.
During a session the history of the dog(s) and examples of challenges the clients are experiencing will be acquired. Then the trainer will offer a specific training protocol, demonstrate exercises and help the client begin making progress that instant.
Some examples of common content of a behavior consulting session are as follows:
-Loose leash walking
-Come when Called
-Off Leash Heeling
-Listening around distractions
-Barking at guests as they enter the home
-Leash reactivity (barking/lunging/pulling/growling) toward things outdoors
-Dog to dog aggression within the home
-Fearful or aggressive behavior directed at people and or dogs
-Dog bite analysis, intervention and options after an incident
-Integrating a new dog into your home
-Counter surfing, garbage diving
-Any puppy training issues (Jumping up, puppy nipping, crate training, destructive chewing, house training)
A session typically lasts between one and two hours.
I want you to call/text 306 630-5801 to inquire about a one on one session
A Program is a series of private sessions with or without the inclusion of group distraction classes. This format allows for very precise and specific training to take place.

A program is perfectly suited for clients who are looking for advanced training or struggling with moderate to severe problem behaviors from their dog that need to be dealt with now.
