A behavior and health history is collected, while reviewing goals, safety, in home and out of the home management, physiological development, how to solve behavior problems and how to prevent them, equipment etc. The in home consultation is a first step to address common behavior problems such as:
- Aggressive behavior toward other dogs and/or people, destructive behavior, anxiety, house manners, separation anxiety, resource guarding (food, location, people etc.), leash reactivity and dog to dog issues, destruction of items etc. We specialize in fear based behavior, with or without the aggression component.
