Behavior Modification Programs

Here at Off The Hook Dogs we specialize in Behavior Modification Training and Rehabilitation Therapies that go beyond simple command training and address your pup's behavior and emotional issues (aggression, frustration and fear) thereby improving the dog's and the family's quality of life. 

 

We approach our behavior modification strategies with empathy and patience guided by the framework of Grisha Stewart's BAT and SAFE programming, combined with the principles and methodologies of Steven Lindsay's Cynopraxic Training which balanced approach engenders secure attachments and a deep abiding bond between the pup and their family or pack.

 

When your dog feels safe and secure, and understands expectations the human-animal bond is strengthened and emotional stability & behavior are immensely improved.

Imagine the benefits of having your dog do a board & train program, without having to say goodbye for an extended period of time. This is the format we use here at Off The Hook Dogs. Under this option Greg will come to you and train your dog at your home and in your neighborhood/area with your pup coming home each day and staying in familiar environs. This is always a superior option for fearful dogs, reactive dogs, or for those pet parents who prefer to have their "fur-babies" at home with them each night.

These programs will teach the same behaviors and achieve even better results as any board and train program and include the training, structure, and obedience that will help you and your pup more easily navigate life together. In addition to nice leash walking manners and a reliable recall, your dog may learn to: touch-up, sit/stay, down/stay, or go-to-place, depending upon which program you choose. And we will also help you with common behavioral issues such as jumping up, nipping, counter surfing or any other issues you need our help with.

For dogs experiencing light emotional & behavior issues and who already have an adequate foundation in obedience, our one-week Foundation Program can be customized and may suffice. For dogs experiencing more complicated issues or aggression our two week Mastery Program may be more well suited. Details will be discussed during the initial consultation.

We specialize in remote collar training, and proper introduction and use of this tool may be covered in both of our behavior program options if recommended and so chosen.
