Problem Solving Program

If your dog is doing something that makes you nervous, uneasy, angry, upset, or any feeling other than happiness, please call! Relationships with our dogs should be fun, not stressful. Working together we can help you and your dog resolve problems and break down the barriers that are preventing from you from moving forward together.

Behavior problem solving typically requires a much more in-depth knowledgeable approach to not further developmental damage in your dog. Some examples of specialty training include obsessive compulsive behaviors, such as spinning and shadow chasing, severe reactivity towards dogs or people, fighting with other dogs in the house,  resource guarding behaviors such as toy, object or food guarding and aggression towards dogs or people.

No matter the problem at hand, Laurie is dedicated to helping you get to the bottom of whats going on and work you through a program to resolve those issues. If you are interested in learning more about Laurie’s background and credentials working with challenging dogs, visit her on-line resume!

Price: Pricing for behavior programs will vary depending on many factors, including the severity of the problem(s) and goals of the family. Following the initial consultation Laurie will provide a training plan customized your dog. Don’t worry, Laurie has varying tiers of the Behavior Problem Solving Program that will fit the needs of your family including the budget you have available!
