BEHAVIOR
MODIFICATION

We take a scientific approach to behavior issues such as fear, anxiety, compulsions, and reactivity. Learn how to manage and recondition triggers, and teach coping skills so your dog can adapt, and how biology impacts behavior problem.

OUR PROCESS

Our behavior modification services follow these procedures: 

  1. Submit your pet’s details through our online form. A K9O professional will get back to you with more details on our services and availability. 

  2. Schedule a phone consult: to get a better idea of your situation, discuss your dog’s history, identify triggers, and assess household management and dynamics.

  3. Schedule Follow-up Lessons. We will conduct an initial in-person debriefing from the consultation, and customize a curriculum based on your dog’s individual intricacies and needs. 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Once we have identified your dog's triggers, and have established various thresholds, we will begin the process of behavior modification. We take a holistic approach considering your dog's breed, social history, motivation, lifestyle, and age when training. Our exercises comprise of:

  • Redirection cues to give your dog an appropriate alternative response 

  • Counter-conditioning to help change your dog's association to triggers 

  • Impulse control and self-soothing exercises to help your dog decompress instead of stress

  • Obedience and manners for overall control and to minimize owner tension in triggering situations
