Dog Training for the Modern Pet Parent

Training for aggressive dogs — $225/lesson

This course is for dogs who show aggressive behavior, and dogs with an established bite history, which is to say any dog who has intentionally put teeth on skin (toward people or animals) intentionally to assert a boundary or respond to discomfort. A bite does not have to result in an injury that needs medical attention to qualify. This does not include puppy mouthing (even if that extends into adulthood), or accidental bites that occurs during vigorous play. If you are unsure if your dog fits this category, feel free to send us a message to get clarification. 

Please refer to this bite scale for additional information about what is or is not a bite in this context. This lesson track is for dogs who have shown levels 2-6, or dogs who have frequent level 1 incidents

All lessons include the following at no additional charge: 

A custom training plan in your email designed with your specific lifestyle and goals in mind, including step-by-step instructions for new skills. Don't even worry about taking notes!
