We take dog aggression extremely seriously as should you. With that said, True dog aggression (sometimes is misdiagnosed by pet owners & trainers alike) is Very rarely fixed. If you’re searching for the solution for a dog trainer or “dog behaviorist” to take your truly aggressive dog & change them into a naturally non-aggressive dog – this is not the program for you. We cannot change a canines’ temperament.
Your main focus should be on learning how to control, manage & properly reside with an aggressive dog.
Our training is geared for the dog owner that wants learn skills to have better control over their dog’s walks when passing people and/or dogs, or when people or dogs pass them or need to share the same space.
An unrealistic goal for a truly aggressive or reactive dog is to expect your dog to become naturally and freely accepting of other people or dogs. Very rarely is aggression “fixed.”
Controlling your dog’s aggression by implementing strong obedience commands to help navigate through environmental challenges should be your goal. Ex: walking by other people and/or dogs, resource guarding, territorial aggression, excessive barking, food aggression. NOT going to dog parks.
Our ideal client is the pet owner that understands that our training consists of giving you the tools, education & support on how to manage, control & make things better for you with your dog’s aggression; NOT eradicate. True aggression is VERY seldom fixed, your Goal is control & management.
What does this mean? Simply stated, we teach you how to control your dog’s aggression while in your presence & under your supervision. Absent your presence, your dog will most likely still be aggressive.
This program is for the involved dog owner who wants to learn how to own, manage, control & train their dog to make both of their journeys better and more rewarding.
Our most common clients is the dog owner that is having trouble walking their dog past other people or dogs; they are unable to control their dog’s lunging and aggression and want to be able to walk their dog with minimum to no incident when passing other people/dogs.

We are teaching you how to train, control and manage your dog’s aggression through obedience commands.
Each lesson, we will work on a command/behavior before giving you homework to practice before your next session.
