We work under threshold so that your dog can learn. That means working at a distance and an intensity where your dog is comfortable and feels safe.
We set your dog up for success by arranging the environment so that your dog is empowered to choose the behaviours we want (e.g. looking at you, looking away, moving on, scenting/searching) instead of the behaviours we don't want (e.g. barking, lunging).
We implement management strategies so that your dog is not practicing stressful and undesirable behaviours while we work on changing your dog's emotional response to triggers.
We look at your dog as a whole to understand and meet your dog's needs. We add enrichment, choice, and control wherever we can to reduce stress and build confidence and optimism.
