Bites and Aggression

Bites and aggression can cause a lot of stress and fear in your home.  You may feel frustrated and at the end of your rope.  Aggression in dogs is a symptom of a larger problem and your dog needs a trainer who cares and understands the motives behind the behavior.  Trainers that punish the symptoms without addressing the cause will inevitably cause your dog, and yourself, more pain and suffering.  My goal is to address the issues behind the behavior and help your dog through those problems in a way that is kind and effective.  By addressing the root cause, we change the dogs emotional state.  This makes for a dog that is calmer, happier and more confident.  It will also greatly improve your understanding of your dog and your relationship.

I strongly recommend all dogs dealing with bites and aggressive behavior have a full examination by a veterinarian before beginning any behavior modification program.  Many times behavior issues are a symptom of undiagnosed pain or illness.  If your dog has experienced an unexpected behavior change, please have a full examination done by your veterinarian.
