Dog & Owner
Continued Education & Support are included.
Protection training, aka bitework, begins by building motivation & fun as a team exercise with you and your dog. As your dog's motivation grows, we can begin to tailor the work toward your long term goals. Whether that is real world personal protection or participation in one of the various bite sports.

Reactive & Aggressive Dogs
We have created a unique and effective way to approach reactive and aggressive dog behavior. Our method is rooted in our experience in the science and art of protection dog training. In this process we reverse the natural outcome of defensive feelings to teach dogs through environmental cue-ing and positive reinforcement, a new set of behaviors to replace old, unwanted, detrimental aggressive habits. Our study in this area gives us understanding of the motivation and reinforcement dogs feel during aggression and how to reprogram the behaviors that are triggered by defensive feelings into new behaviors. In this process we will employ behavioral science through classical conditioning, operant conditioning, game theory and premacking to achieve results. A portion of this work will focus on our tried and true methods for building trust between dog and owner and building your dog's self confidence through positive experiences that take place below your dog's defensive threshold. Many dogs also need some environmental counter conditioning as a part of this process.
All dogs with dog or human oriented aggression are required to start with an Evaluation & Training Plan Appointment.
Don't just take our word for it...
