We have been rehabilitating aggression in all forms for a number of years.

Because we are always learning, our process continuously grows and expands. This is our process to rehab aggressive dogs today:
Before we begin, we strongly recommend taking your dog to your veterinarian for a thorough exam, including blood panel. If the aggression came on suddenly when your dog turned 2 or 3, be sure to have the thyroid blood panel checked. Since pain can lead to aggression, have x-rays taken to check hips and joints.
Safety is our number one priority when working and living with your dog. Safety for your dog, other pets, owners, trainers, everyone.
- We require all dogs with a history of biting to come in on a Jafco muzzle (our first choice) or Baskerville muzzle (our second choice, but is available at Petco). Below is a video for you to muzzle train your dog.
- Dog must be on a flat 4′ to 6′ leash (extendable leashes are not permitted), held securely at all times.
- Dog must be on a secure slip lead, choke collar, or slip collar, with no plastic parts. Some dogs do well on a prong collar, for others, it amps them up more.
- Owner must have control of dog. We require a 5′ space bubble between every dog at all times, unless specifically instructed otherwise.
- Depending on your dog, you have two options regarding training programs:
- Board & Train, with Freedom, Remote Training Collar. You will start with the 4-week and see if we need to add more. Most dogs do amazing with this, but some dogs do need an extra week or two.
- Personal Training Package, with Freedom, Remote Training Collar. We meet weekly, working with you and your dog, and leaving you with daily homework until our next session.
- Start training with our Canine Lifestyle Plan, key aspects of life with your dog (training is only 1 of them).
- A new way to communicate with your dog.
- Build confidence, trust, and respect.
- Address the root causes of your dog’s aggression.
- How layered stress can increase your dog’s aggression.
- Build teamwork between you and your dog.
- Change your dog’s state of mind.
- Teach your dog to be calm, relaxed, and follow your lead.
- The difference between adrenaline and energy, and how to de-adrenalize your dog.
- Dogmanship Training Method.
- Freedom, Remote Collar Training Method, and layer that over the Dogmanship training that we do. This provides a non-confrontational means of communicating with your dog. We do not “blast” the dog for making the wrong choice, that is not how we use the remote training collar. Instead, we use low level stimulation to guide the dog into making correct choices.
- Conditioned Relaxation & Perception Modification will empower your dog learn to manage their emotions and cope with stressors.
- Socials teach your dog how to communicate and interact appropriately with dogs of various breeds, ages, and temperaments.
- Tug teaches your dog how to get their legal dopamine hit by doing what comes naturally.
- Advocate for your Dog teaches your dog that you’ve got this, and they don’t have to be concerned about it.
- Canine Essential Oils work on a cellular level to support your dog’s training and rehabilitation.
- Reiki work to attune your dog’s energy, clear chakras, and allow your dog to spiritually heal.
