Behavioral Dog Class
Teaching good behavior that is based on their social identity and self-managed by your dog results in your dog feeling like a competent, content, complete partner. A partner who listens, behaves, can hold a LONG down and stay, is able to negotiate the social world with skill by not bothering others and is protected from incorrect responses seen in so many dogs. Dogs learn this extremely quickly and incorporate it into their daily world.
A 2-hour private consultation for all ages and breeds, for a maximum of 2 dogs, either in your home or at Overfield Kennels. This consultation will focus on both general and specific behavior problems of the dog(s) and educating the owner(s) in a manner that is a proven success without fear or abuse. It is behaviorally-based and has NOTHING to do with obedience. It works within the social parameters of the dog’s ‘culture’ and has been highly successful with all genetically/medically sound dogs. Owners will learn about dogs, how they think, react, their social identity, and how to communicate correctly in order to establish behavioral parameters that work and can be successfully maintained. The skill and knowledge of the owner coupled with the correct behavior from a dog can result in a 2-hour or more sit/stay without “practice”, a come (recall command), socially acceptable behavior upon greeting people/animals, self-moderating behavior from dogs, and increased awareness, knowledge and competency in the dog-human relationship from owners. (For
consultations outside a 50 mile radius of Overfield Kennels there is a travel fee. Please contact us, regardless of your home state, for fees. Our goal is to help dogs and owners and we attempt to keep travel fees reasonable for that reason.)
