Often times, people mistake their dog’s Possessive or Territorial behavior as being Protective. The fact of the matter is it’s very unlikely your dog is truly “Protective.” That specific behavior is often reserve for highly trained protection dogs, of which we used to actually provide. The way to tell if your dog is being Possessive/Territorial rather than Protective is to look at the context of the situation. If your dog ONLY growls, bites, or barks when there is an imminent threat, that behavior is Protective. However, if your dog growls, barks, or bites at ANY approaching thing, that behavior is likely possessive/territorial. However, it can be stopped! We can show you how to correct Territorial/Possessive behavior, redirect it into more positive behaviors like obedience, and stop those behaviors from escalating in the future.
Do you want your dog to stop acting reactive whenever someone approaches you? Do you want to stop worrying about your dog potentially harming someone else to “protect you?”
If you answered “Yes!” to any of the above, schedule a call with us or keep reading…
When we are dealing with behavioral or potentially reactive issues we like to see your pup first hand to understand what's occurring. In order to do that, we start with a Lesson/Assessment. This allows us to:
This assessment usually takes an hour and costs $109. However, you will still get some great advice on how to address the issue. Additionally, we use these assessments to nail down the length of time and pricing for whichever program your pup goes into. If you decide to leave your pup for the prescribed camp the same day, we contribute the $109 into the cost of camp, essentially making the assessment free.
To get started, schedule a call with us below. We will go over some paperwork, confirm vaccinations, take a deposit for the lesson, and schedule the best time for you!
We are located at 4640 E Forest Pleasant Place, Cave Creek Arizona, 85331.
Our pricing depends on what we see in the assessment, so please give us a call so that we can schedule that!
We always recommend Camp first, but all of our programs are great in their own way!
Give us a call (480.595.6700) so that we can start on paperwork and scheduling!
There are never guarantees with dog behavior, but we do have incredibly high success rates.
