ALL PROBLEMS SOLVED. ANY AGE. ANY BREED.
JumpingExcessive jumping is a behavior that plagues many families. It can cause embarrassment and affect your social life. Working with a skilled 3D Dog Behaviorist can give you tools and techniques necessary to develop better manners in your dog.
AnxietyAnxiety is a massive topic. It could be argued that every behavior challenge is an expression of anxiety -- whether that anxiety be founded in lack of understanding, or due to some trauma or chronic stress in the dog's life. Anxiety can have several different classifications such as obsessive compulsive disorders or generalized anxiety. The key to resolving behavior challenges is to understand the dog's worldview and to satisfy their emotional needs as a caregiver.
Leash PullingLeash pulling can be a dangerous behavior. We have worked with many clients who have been pulled to the ground or even suffered injury. Leash pulling can also be harmful to your dog's health. We can show you the way to a harmonious walk by learning leash technique and mastering your dog's focus.
AggressionDog aggression is a complex emotional issue in dogs, but this behavior has firm roots in a dog's sense of security and attachment in caregivers whose job is to instill trust in the dog's world; a role which is to set the conditions by which dogs can feel the safe in the world. We are highly qualified to help your aggressive dog to learn trust and to accept vulnerability in a changing world.
Play BitingPlay biting is often attributed to teething. However, most commonly it is due to your dog seeking authority and learning how to control others with their mouth. This behavior is, at its core, a parenting behavior used by dogs to control their offspring.
Not Coming When CalledDogs with poor recall are at greater risk of injury or death. Young dogs can have difficulty coming when called due to adolescence, which brings with it urges of independence and willfulness. Adolescence is normal, but you must learn how to properly manage it for their own safety.
DestructivenessDestructiveness is not about teething! Rather, dogs destroy things in order to displace stress. It is a venting of emotional energy through action. The real question is not, what do I do when my dog is destructive? It is, how do I instill greater feelings of security and self-control?
