Behaviour Problem Solving

We offer a behaviour problem solving program to assist those owners that may face the frustration of having a dog that displays undesirable behaviour. Let’s face it, we all have been through it with our dogs at times and we understand the frustrations you face. We aim to first identify the cause of the problem and then implement a program to eliminate this behaviour designed to coincide with your needs and lifestyle. We will give you realistic expectations of fixing your dog’s problems and the length of time needed to do so. We can also help in the prevention of canine behaviour problems before they occur.

Some of the issues we regularly deal with include

  • Aggression towards other dogs
  • Aggression towards people
  • Fear and timidity
  • Destructive behaviour
    (chewing, digging, pulling washing off line etc)
  • Boredom and separation related behaviour
  • Over excitement

  • Dominance
  • Excessive barking or crying
  • Jumping up on people
  • Scratch/whine at door
  • Stealing
  • Attention seeking
  • Mouthing or nipping

As a general rule, most behaviour problems can be solved in one or two sessions. We have various packages available depending on the issue presented and the likelihood of a quick resolution.
