Initial Consultation:Consultations are available to help you understand your canine’s behavior and start you on a training program to meet your needs. Consultations run between 60 and 90 minutes. Heidi comes to your home to perform an assessment and gives you the tools to mold and shape (i.e., eradicate) the undesirable behaviors; and then teaches you the skills needed to teach your canine more desirable behaviors.
Following our visit, you will receive a behavioral assessment, diagnosis and recommendations of treatment options via email or fax.
AggressionCurrently there are eighteen different kinds of documented canine aggression in our culture. A few of these include: Dominance Aggression, Fear Aggression, Inter-Dog Aggression, Resource/Food Related Aggression, and Aggression Related to Old Age.First Heidi makes sure your canine has been evaluated by your veterinarian to rule out a medical etiology for the aggression your canine is demonstrating. Because diagnostically aggression can be difficult to understand, it is best to consult with someone that has professional skills and experience with various kinds of aggression. Heidi is available to help you determine, diagnostically what kind of aggression your dog is exhibiting and then make the proper recommendations. After diagnosis, sometimes it simply entails implementing a treatment plan where she teaches you modeling healthier behaviors, desensitization, and counter-conditioning. Other times it entails making a referral to a veterinarian for psychopharmacological help or both. However, Heidi has a great deal of experience working with all kinds of aggression cases.
