ABOUT DOG BEHAVIOR CONSULTING

My Dog Has Issues: Level 1

Before joining this class, you must complete an average of 2-4 hours of behavior consults and receive instructor approval. To register you must obtain the registration code from the instructor.

Problem behaviors with dogs can come in many forms. Dogs may be easily distracted, they might have difficulty around other dogs, or they may behave inappropriately with other people. In many cases, problem behaviors occur because the dog is reactive, shy, fearful or unfocused. This class can help.

Based on the principals in the book Control Unleashed by Leslie McDevitt, this class helps reactive dogs learn to calm, shy dogs to gain confidence and fearful dogs to be courageous. Most of our clients report a 50-75% improvement regarding the problem behavior after just six weeks of class.

The class is given in a group setting, with a maximum of four dogs. The class term is 6 weeks, 1 hour-long class per week.

Having had first-hand experience with Courteous Canine, Inc. of Tampa’s methods while attending their Control Unleashed course with my own very fearful and reactive dog, it has not only helped me and my pet, but has given me so much insight to help patients and clients with similar issues. The positive approach to training and tips to avoiding negative triggers puts both dog and at ease and sets them up for success. I feel very fortunate to have Courteous Canine, Inc of Tampa as a resource to help my clients that have pets with problem behaviors, as well as anxiety and fear issues.
