Aggressive and/or fearful dogs require different methods and strategies and more time and work than general obedience lessons offer. In order to modify their behavior, their current state of mind has to be completely reprogrammed and the cause of their instability resolved so that they can become balanced. This takes a lot of time and hard work, and thus, the only completion date is the one where your dog has achieved and can consistently maintain that state of balance for a period of no less than three months. If you commit to your dog and do the homework I give you between our sessions, your dog will progress much more quickly than if you don’t work them. Remember: Your dog’s success is entirely dependent on your commitment to helping them move forward.
Rehabilitation Therapy for aggressive and/or fearful dogs is as follows:
