The Behavioral Development Program is a customized instruction program tailored specifically to the needs of an individual dog or handler(s). This program is designed to lay the proper foundation for obedience, while addressing specific undesirable behaviors such as excessive barking, destructive chewing, aggression, leash reactivity, anxiety, fear, etc. This program will address these types of behavioral issues and produce a well-balanced dog. It is important to remember that many behavioral issues stem from the way we handle (or mishandle) our companions. While we will directly address the behavior, our focus will be on the root cause and psychological aspect of why your dog is exhibiting these behaviors. From there, the focus is on training you on appropriate handling techniques.
This program may be right for you if your dog has done any of the following:
- Lunging at or attacking other dogs
- Lunging at or attacking humans
- Destroying furniture
- Food or toy possessiveness
- Counter surfing
- Uncontrollable behavior when people come to the door
- Ignoring commands when distractions are around
- Separation anxiety
Many people who have dogs with severe behavioral problems find that they need to schedule their lives around the needs of their dog(s). They must limit who comes over to their house and when, they can’t take their dog for a walk, or they can’t go on vacations because their dog can’t go to a boarding facility. At AlphA and Omega Dog Training we believe that, although our dogs are a part of our family, they should not put limits on our lives. Our dogs should be able to fit into our lives. A Behavioral Development Program is a great first step towards enjoying a relaxing, low-stress life with your furry companion.
In many cases, we see dogs that are generally well behaved, but need to address specific issues, or fine tune obedience training received elsewhere. Because each dog is unique and has their own individual personality, we will discuss the desired modifications and formulate a tailored program to achieve the desired results. At AlphA and Omega Dog Training, we don’t count sessions. We count results. Once you join our Pack, there are unlimited follow-ups via call, text, email, or appointment. With your commitment and leadership, your dog will reach and advanced level of obedience – both on and off leash – resulting in an ideal companion for you and your family.
