Problem Behaviour Modification is available to all SmartDog Puppies currently enrolled in classes and under the age of 5 months. In some cases older class dogs may be taken on as time permits. We have limited availability and are choosing to prioritize young puppies as the sooner we address problem behaviour the more likely we are to remediate the issue.
We can help you work with undesired behaviours such as aggression, reactivity, separation anxiety, over-excitement, barking, and house training. Private behaviour training involves assessing what function the behavior serves and what triggers it. Owners will receive a plan of action to increase desired behaviors and decrease the problem behaviours. The plan will also involve some management strategies.
Changing unwanted behaviour takes time and often requires multiple sessions.
