Keys to Success
A few tips, tricks & recommended equipment:

Have a tripod compatible with your phone or device
A device with video and audio capability
A Leash & Collar
~ Setting up and testing Google Meet on your phone/ laptop/ tablet ahead of the appointment is advised.
~ Plan your setting in a place where you can set the phone or laptop down (tripod) so that we can be active and work your dog without the phone getting in the way.
Aggression & Reactivity
The Audax Protocol
Reactive and Aggressive Dogs
Counter-conditioning and behavior modification sessions.
Are you frustrated with or embarrassed by your dog's behavior? Lunging? Barking at everyone and everything? Are you concerned about a potential bite incident? Or has your dog already bitten someone? Step one is our Evaluation & Training Plan appointment.
Evaluation & Training Plan Appointment:
We require all leash reactive, reactive and aggressive dogs to first schedule an evaluation appointment.
At an evaluation appointment, we will first gather a detailed case history. We will then observe how your dog interacts with various stimuli and evaluate the dog's suitability for our training program. In addition, we will provide you with a comprehensive training plan for you and your dog, including systematic and detailed homework to begin working on before your first private lesson.
Our Evaluation and Training Plan Appointment is $275 prepaid and non refundable.
*An evaluation appointment is not required to move forward with private training sessions if your dog is not dealing with aggression issues.*
After your evaluation appointment, we recommend working in private lessons once or twice a week until your dog is able to graduate into group training classes. The private training session fees listed above will apply
