REAL TRAINING - REAL RESULTS
Our Behavior Modification program is conducted in the Real World, in Real Time. No walk in circles, throw treats, mess. We use every opportunity to correct unwanted behavior such as, when the Amazon guy swings by or the pizza guy is knocking on the door or guests come through the door. This way, provides a much more honest result. As you already know, there's a lot more to owning a dog than sit, stay, down and walking on a leash. We train in real time, as life happens.
FIX THE MINDSET - NOT THE ACTION
More than likely, your dog is acting up because of their thought process. It's not about fixing the unwanted actions of the dog ... instead, we want to correct the mindset which makes them believe they are allowed to do the unwanted behavior. Simply put, most dogs with behavioral issues, do those unwanted actions because they believe they can. Most dogs have ``spoiled dog syndrome``. They do what they do ... because they can! When we have corrected that mindset, and the dog begins to respect you, as the handler ... the unwanted behavior goes away. Anything less, is a band aid on a deeper issue.
Handler Training is included with our Behavior Modification Services. If we correct the unwanted actions of the dog, without providing you with the training to maintain what we have done, your dog will revert back. We take the time to train you how to properly command and correct your dog. We teach you how to be proactive, rather than reactive. We also explain to you how to read and interpret projected energy as well as read and interpret body language.
WHAT IS BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION?
The Correction of Deep Seeded Behavioral Issues
Behavior Modification is a service that uses real science to affect change in your dog to remedy unwanted behavior. Many trainers will want to provide you with an obedience course however, this type of service will not correct the unwanted behavior. Teaching your dog to sit, stay, down or walk on a leash is not what is needed when dealing with deep seeded behavior issues. It is imperative that a dog behaviorist works with the psychological part of your dog. We do not teach the dog to perform certain actions … instead, we change the way your dog responds to triggers. It is important that your dog leave their comfort zone or the environment they are used to getting by with the bad behavior. Real Behavior Modification cannot be a once a week service. It is imperative that the dog live in an environment where they can be under constant monitoring, so as not to have any opportunity to get by with the unwanted behavior.
We bring your dog into an environment, where it is our only job to work with your dog. We work in real time, as the pizza guy swings by or the Amazon delivery person comes to the door. We work in an environment where guests are stopping by and the kids are running in an out. This is a real environment, as opposed to a sterile environment where a trainer attempts to setup a situation to trick the dog. This is a big contributor to our success. We work in real time, in the real world. This type of service provides for a much more honest and optimal result.
Adjusting the Mindset and Thought Process of a Dog
As a Dog Behaviorist, Dayton Dog Trainer specializes in deep seeded behavioral issues. Behavior Modification is a services that helps with those hard to fix issues many dogs have. Whether your dog is destroying your home, has excited peeing or fear urination issues, behavior modification can help or eliminate those problems all together. Behavior Modification can also help with dogs who have issues with other dogs in the home. Many times, people will add a new puppy to the family, which can sometimes cause your dog to become aggressive with the new family member. You may also see a change in your dog, when it comes to moving into a new home as well as those going through a pregnancy. It is not uncommon for pregnant women to experience a change in their dog. This can be due to hormonal changes as well as energy changes. Without a professional dog trainer to assist, the unwanted changes you see in your dog can become permanent.
OTHER TYPES OF UNWANTED DOG BEHAVIOR
Other types of Dog Behavior Modification can consist of simply fixing issues such as eating grass, eating stool, spinning, excessive barking, doing things over and over in an obvious manner that would be considered defective thinking or mental issues. We specialize in dogs with aggression problems, whether it be dog aggression, people aggression, food aggression or just plain aggression, along with behavioral issues that don’t allow for your canine companion to live a healthy balanced life. You can’t help but to feel sorry for a dog that lives in a world, where he thinks, that everyone and everything are out to get him.
Fear in a dog is a very scary thing to contend with. Fear can make a dog go insane, be aggressive, roll over on his back and submit to everything, urinate all over the floor, or their selves. Allowing these issues to fester on and on, can be dangerous … not only for the dog, but for the owners also. Even a dog that doesn’t have aggression issues, can be driven to bite, out of fear. We call these dogs … Fear Biters. This is one of the most dangerous situations, because you can never predict a dog’s behavior, when fear is occurring in their life.
If you are dealing with any of these issues or any other issue … it is imperative, that you seek professional help for your dog, as soon as possible. As a result, it will easier to deal with, the sooner you start in the right direction, rather letting it get even more out of control.
