Behavior Consultation for Problem Behaviors
A Behavior Consultation is not a training session but a step-by-step process that identifies the underlying cause of the behavior. Secondly, a Consult develops a protocol for training and or management from recognized Applied Animal Behavior and Learning Principles based on positive–reward[s].
Fido getting into trouble? Causing stress within the family? Disrupting the household? Have concerns or questions about a specific behavior? Your family dog whether pure breed or mixed can present their own inherent problems and personalities.
