Behavior & Aggression Management


Aggression in dogs can be complex, serious and dangerous for dog owners. To treat the problem effectively, it will first be necessary to determine which type of aggression your dog displays: conflict-related, fear, dominance, possessive, protective, territorial, maternal, play, redirected, pain-induced, interdog aggression, aggression toward familiar and unfamiliar people, status-related aggression, pathophysiological (or medical), or learned. In many cases, more than one form of aggression may be exhibited.

Behavior issues can be wide ranging and include things like: Fear of humans, dogs, things or noises. Excessive barking & whining, destructive chewing, separation anxiety, resource guarding, and improper play. 


At Pleasant Paw's we can help you diagnose which type of behavior/aggression your dog is displaying specifically then teach you how to cope with that issue using counter-conditioning and desensitising techniques to change the dog's mind-set before the problem can get escalated. 


For more information please call us so we can get an initial assessment to begin the process. One hour sessions are $95/hr, multiple sessions may be required depending on the type and severity of the aggression, however we can tailor a "package" for your specific situation.
