BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION

(FOR FEARFUL AND AGGRESSIVE DOGS):

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our immersive behavior modification programs builds massive amounts of confidence, and helps your dog develop social skills and coping tools for interacting with (or just tolerating) dogs and humans, patterns new foundation behaviors, working the entire time toward creating a more stable emotional baseline.  Dogs receive private, customized training sessions, group training sessions, daily structured walks, controlled socialization opportunities with balanced dogs, and supervised play time between intensive training. We specialize in cutting-edge, low-level remote collar training and advanced behavior modification. Please take a moment to read about how remote collar training humanely and effectively facilitates clear dog-human communication here.  By the end of their stay, your dog will understand an entirely new way of being. Additionally, you will be armed with a better understanding of canine psychology, body language and proper handling skills, allowing you both to enjoy a stress-free life together. Our methods build confidence by teaching your dog to defer to you when they are uncomfortable, create space when they need it, and reliably make better choices in all kinds of situations, with minimal stress and confusion, and in a very reasonable amount of time.  

 

In addition to a 100% on and off-leash obedience foundation covering all of the basic commands included in the Loyal Lassie Bootcamp listed above, the root and nature of each dog's aggression will be strategically and comprehensively addressed. All dogs, provided they are injury-free, will also learn how to use the treadmill. (We find this is not only a great structured activity, but a confidence-builder as well!)

 

 

Head Trainer Corinna Melanie, CPDT-KA is one of the few trainers in the Santa Fe area with a successful track record when it comes to the rehabilitation of both human and dog-aggressive dogs, even those with documented bite histories.  Through intensive Rehabilitation Programs designed with compassion, structure, obedience, and the application of advanced behavior modification techniques, we have saved hundreds of dogs that would have otherwise been put down or given up on. Having your dog board with us during the rehabilitation process allows us to enforce a 24/7 lifestyle-routine, and provide the ideal training environment for such dramatic changes to take place.  Your dog will learn to trust the human leaders in their lives, and to follow non-negotiable rules and boundaries - these key principles and many more, are needed to re-establish balance. Finally, know that the safety and well-being of your dog is #1; all boarding dogs, as well as the facility's climate, are closely monitored, and under 24-hour CCTV Surveillance. 

 

 

*The recommended length of your dog’s stay depends on many factors including but not limited to the nature and severity of their aggression.  Occasionally, we have a dog who's issues require a three or four week stay.

We utilize cutting-edge low level remote collar training technology. Our techniques are guided by the latest advances in behavioral science and allow us to achieve dramatic, long-lasting, transferable results. Remote collars help empower owners, refine dogs’ focus in both low and high distraction environments, and HUMANELY encourage crystal clear communication between dog and human.  Our methods instead build confidence through teaching your dog to reliably make better choices in all kinds of situations, with minimal stress and confusion, and in a very reasonable amount of time. 

 

We train specifically to your needs and the lifestyle that you dream of enjoying with your companion, and only take on one dog at a time, regardless of the location, in order for each dog to be successful and to receive a truly tailored, personalized experience. 

At the end of your dog's program, we have a half-day transfer session where you’ll learn how to cue and maintain your dog’s new behavior in the real world.  We will ensure you have confidence in any environment in which you had previously struggled.
