Reactivity and aggression are critical dilemmas and shouldn’t be minimized. The truth is that aggression is a behavior that every dog is capable of. It’s there somewhere as part of your dog, and if given the right circumstances, your puppy may show it.
Reactivity and Aggression when they present themselves are some of the most concerning behaviors to most dog owners. They could accept many forms, from snarling and other body posture indicators to growling or barking, all the way around physically attacking another dog or person. Numerous factors can play a part in the manifestation of aggression, not enough socialization, abuse, fear, owners behavior, and genetics, to mention a few.
Whatever the root cause of the Reactivity or Aggression, our job is to teach the aggressive dog board and train and teach the dog a better way of existing within our world. We make this happen by putting the dog into a very structured environment with clear, concise communication, establishing strong rules and boundaries, and teaching them just what behavior is expected of them and what is not allowed.
We establish a new sort of relationship with the dog through our training, likely not one he’s ever had before, where he sees a human as a strong, competent leader. Teaching the dog to trust that any situation we encounter, we humans have under control. Once your puppy learns to release the reactive/aggressive behavior, they can relax and live a happier, more fulfilling life. Most owners will see transformation results they could not have thought possible.
As a holistic training element to lessen reactivity/aggression, your puppy will receive lots of training in basic obedience and graduate with a strong drive to make you happy. This training is extremely fulfilling to the dog. Just like a person, dogs enjoy learning new things and succeeding at them.
What Your Dog will Learn:
-Down (lay down)
-Heel (loose leash walking at side)
-Place (dog goes for their bed and lays down until released)
-No (Discipline for unwanted behaviors such as excessive barking, jumping on people, digging, etc.)
-Door Manners (no bolting through doors/gates)

Whenever your dog completes our Reactivity and Aggression Board and Train Program, he will undoubtedly be brought home, and you will get a thorough debrief of his training. You’ll also receive coaching on the best way to command the same level of obedience I do. We will continue to work with him and review what your next steps need to be to make certain all his hard work sticks now that he’s back in his old environment. You must follow my guidance to ensure maximum success.
We will also schedule a follow-up for a week after the disappearance, and I can come back to your home after you’ve had some time to savor your dog’s new skills and use him some on your own. I’ll answer any questions that can have come up and ensure you are staying on the right track to building a tougher companionship together with your dog. This entire program is made to ensure you can have a sensible, well-behaved dog for the rest of this life.
