Behav­ioural Consultations

Smart­Dog Train­ing will help solve prob­lem behav­iours includ­ing sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety, aggres­sion, house­train­ing, dig­ging and bark­ing. You will receive an analy­sis of the prob­lem, man­age­ment strate­gies and a behav­iour mod­i­fi­ca­tion plan to rem­edy the problem.

Con­sul­ta­tions regard­ing aggres­sion and anx­i­ety start at $118 (office) $130 (lim­ited travel) for the first visit with pack­age rates avail­able. Please note that aggres­sion issues  are com­plex and we rec­om­mend three visit pack­ages  or more (or the option of the growly class for dogs reac­tive with other dogs). Other behav­iour issues are at above pri­vate les­son rates. 

Day Train­ing

Send your dog to charm school! Does your dog growl at you when you approach his food or toys? Is your dog rude, jumpy and bit­ing for atten­tion? These and other prob­lem behav­iours require the time and con­sis­tency that Smart­Dog Train­ing can pro­vide. Feel con­fi­dent know­ing that your dog will learn fan­tas­tic impulse con­trol in a pos­i­tive pain-free train­ing program.

Pri­vate lessons require 24 hour can­cel­la­tion notice.
