Dog Behavior Modification

Offering Dog Behavior Modification Programs that Get Results!

dog behavior modificationHighland Canine Training offers Dog Behavior Modification programs for owners with dogs that exhibit difficult behaviors. We work with dogs of all ages and breeds with a variety of problems such as aggression, fighting, biting, resource guarding, phobias, shyness, fears, anxiety and neurotic behaviors. With the knowledge obtained through years of working with problem dogs we are confident that we can find the solution you are looking for. We utilize proven, scientific techniques and applied behavior analysis along with sound operant conditioning principles to ensure that behavior problems are resolved in a safe and efficient way.

An initial evaluation and behavioral analysis interview is needed to properly diagnose your dogs issues and determine the root causes of the problems. Our behavior modification programs are customized to each individual dog and their owner, as no two dogs are alike and each problem may stem from a different source. Understanding the behavior and cause is the first step to successful rehabilitation. A plan of action is then set in place to ensure the success of our program and the rehabilitation of the dog.

If you are experiencing behavior problems with your dog and have questions or want more information on our dog behavior modification programs, feel free to contact us.  Unfortunately, we cannot resolve your problems or diagnose behavior over the phone but we will schedule a time to evaluate your dog free of charge.  Based on this evaluation, we will be able to better suggest a behavior modification program that will get you the best results.
