Behavior Consults

The Dog Den

Do you need help with your pup's behavior but don't know where to start? The puppy experts at The Puppy Den are here to help! Our team of behavior consultants are highly trained in dog behavior and training. Not only do we keep up with the latest research in positive reinforcement/motivational training and behavior modification, but we spend our days working hands on with a variety of pups -- from our daycare puppies to shelter pups to puppies visiting the vet. We will work with you to find the best solutions for your problems to create a harmonious household for all members of your family.

Private Lessons are scheduled by appointment and cover concerns that are specific to you and your puppy. These sessions are for all breeds and ages. They include (but certainly are not limited to):

  • Housetraining
  • Polite Greeting Manners
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Barking
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Crate Training
  • Dog-Dog Aggression
  • Dog-People Aggression
  • Possession Aggression
  • Territory Aggression
  • On-leash Reactivity
  • Bringing Home Baby
  • Obedience Skills and Manners
  • Improving Listening Skills
  • Multi-Dog Household Issues (Harmony in a Multi-Dog Household)
  • Choosing the right dog for your home
  • Bringing another animal into your home
  • Chasing Cars (and bikes and rollerblades and leaves!)
  • Bolting out the door
  • Leash Manners
  • Preparing for Therapy Dog certifications
  • Bringing a new puppy or adult dog into your home
  • Retraining a rescue dog to adapt to your family life
  • Evaluation of an adult dog for aggression or compatibility
  • Overcoming shyness, fearfulness, or anxiety

We will work with you to design a program that fits the needs of you and your puppy. Some problems may be addressed in a single lesson while more complex problems may require more than one lesson. Contact us today to find out more about our private lessons!
