Without intervention, aggression problems most often only get worse. In order to have the best success with behavior modification, it is best to address these problems as soon as they begin. Each dog is a unique individual and needs to be fully evaluated. While we can offer solutions to most kinds of aggression, solutions can only come with a clear commitment from all family members to follow-through on training or management. With some dogs, training will be lifelong; with others, consistent patient training can make all the difference in the world.
Private lessons are most appropriate for dog-to-dog or other animal aggression, or dog-to-human aggression. The first session is to assess the situation and start educating the family on managing the situation and making behavior modifications.
Sessions last from 1 to 1½ hours.
