Behavior Modification: Behaviors include, but are not limited to: Jumping, Chewing, Digging, Barking, Biting, Taking Things, Housebreaking, Not Coming When Called, Charging The Door, Aggressive Behavior (around the food bowl, toys, and other possessions), and Walking on a leash without pulling. The Behavioral Training Session is an in-home, hands on Behavior Modificationsession that addresses and cures unwanted behavioral problems. The owner is shown the correct way to work with the dog and redirect his behavior. The owner is then instructed to repeat the techniques learned in the session until the dog realizes that his actions causes the same reaction, every time. Results are seen immediately. Most behaviors are completely cured in less than 2 weeks. The Behavioral Training Session runs two to two and a half hours. Training equipment is not required for any behavioral issue, but is necessary for the heeling phase of the Behavioral Training Session. At the owners home: Cost:$180.00 .......2 dogs from the same family:$200.00 At the trainer's facility in Covington only: Cost: $100.00(for 4 or more issues) ...2 dogs from the same family: $150.00.
Single Issue Discount: (mini behavioral training session)
Cost: $25.00 per issue (up to 4 issues).
**Only available at the training facility, or after one of our group classes** If your dog has just 1 or 2 behavioral issues, you only pay for what you need. Example: If your dog doesn't come when called, or just has a bad habit of jumping on people. Or if his only problem is rushing the door, or pulling on the leash.
Individual sessions last from 20 to 30 minutes.
For training to be effective, the dog must display the unwanted behavior during the consult. In other words, if the puppy doesn't wet, dig, chew, etc. during the session, nothing can be done hands on to correct the problem. The owner can only be given instructions as to what to do when the problem does occur.
(Applies to in-home visits only):There is a $25.00 charge for any follow up visits to address the same issues. Results are guaranteed. If a marked improvement is not seen by the end of the Behavioral Training Session, there will be no charge. However, a $25.00 travel time fee will apply.
