For adolescent dogs 6-18 months old, they may already be developing concerning behaviour such as resource guarding food, toys, space or even their owners, being destructive, mouthing/nipping, jumping, reactivity on lead and so on. We have a special package for dogs displaying this type of behaviour which include 3 training sessions where we can tackle any of these concerning behaviours before they develop into habits. Each training session can be spaced between 1-2 weeks so you have the chance to practice the training techniques discussed. The cost is $350 and includes a detailed report on your last session so you have everything in writing to refer back on when continuing with your training.
