Most frequent questions and answers
There are many variables when determining how many sessions it may require to help you and your dog. Some of those variables include your overall goals; the severity of the behavior(s); the “type” of aggression your dog is displaying; your dog’s behavior history; how much time and resources you can commit; how your dog responds to the behavior modification; and addressing any underlying medical issues that might exist that are contributing to the behavior.
The online consultation is an excellent first step if you are looking to understand your dog’s aggression and seek immediate initial recommendations. It is also helpful for those who have been working with another behavior professional and would like a “second set of eyes” on a case. We also offer this option to trainers who would like to fine tune a case they may be working with.
If you are looking for a comprehensive option with “concierge level” support from Mike from a “start to finish” aspect, the online aggression program would be the best fit.
