Behavior Modification

Is your dog having behavior problems?  Not sure what to do?

Arrange a Behavior Consultation with Eileen and receive certified, experienced help in your own home at a time that is convenient for you.  Eileen is a certified dog behavior consultant with both the IAABC and CCPDT and will address your dog's behavior issues with positive and humane methods.  Eileen uses behavior modification through positive reinforcement techniques to change the undesirable behaviors that your dog exhibits.  This involves teaching your dog new behavior patterns and teaching him to make better choices.  Other trainers may use suppression (shock collars, prong collars, other punishments) to attempt to inhibit your dog from performing unwanted behaviors.  Eileen will NEVER instill fear, intimidate, or cause your dog pain through the use of shock collars, prong collars, or leash corrections.  She gathers information to learn why your dog is performing these behaviors and will create specific training and protocols unique to you and your household to manage and/or modify the behavior(s).
