Behaviour Modification

Let’s face it … living with a dog with behaviour issues can be challenging, frustrating, & embarrassing. We understand and we’re here to help! Behaviour modification is a process which requires your commitment, effort, & consistency in order to be successful. But, oh, is it worth it in the end!

We make the process simple & straightforward.

Initial Consult

All behaviour modification programs begin with a 90-minute virtual or in-home initial consult. During this process, we’ll take a detailed history about your dog & his/her behaviours, we’ll chat about your goals, & we’ll provide you with some immediate management tools & training exercises to help reduce both your stress levels.
