This service is for dogs with problem behaviours and their people. Examples of problem behaviours are general anxiety, reactivity or aggression towards other dogs or people, resource guarding, etc. We will help you manage and modify your dog's behaviour such that you can build a more rewarding relationship together.
If your dog struggles with separation anxiety, the behaviour modification plan can be implemented via online sessions. Please visit our online services page for more information.
Behaviour modification is a process whereby we change a dog's underlying emotions over time, therefore this process takes time and commitment.
The behaviour modification course is a three step process:
Step 1: Veterinary check
A veterinary check is required before behaviour modification begins. This is to ensure that there are no underlying medical conditions that are driving the behaviour (e.g., undiagnosed pain or discomfort).
Step 2: Behaviour intake form and consult
When you book a behaviour modification course, Catherine will send you a behaviour intake form. Please fill in the form with as much detail as you can.
Once the form is completed, we will schedule a behaviour consult. The consult is a 1.5-2 hour meeting in which we will discuss the intake form and the behaviour problem in more detail.
Step 3: Behaviour modification practical sessions
Once the vet check and consultation are complete, we will begin the process of behaviour modification. There is a minimum of three practical sessions that follow the behaviour consult, however, depending on the nature of the behaviour problem, five practical sessions may be required.
Steps 1 and 2 must be completed before behaviour modification training can begin.
If the behaviour modification process sounds like too much time investment, you can consider the behaviourist-led behaviour modification program.
Behaviour modification costs:
Please note that there is a 15% discount for dogs adopted from shelters or rescued from unsafe situations within one year of adoption.
