Dog Behavior Consultations

Private Counseling for Problem Behaviors

Some dog behavior concerns are too involved and/or serious to be dealt with in a group setting. In such cases, private in-home training allows for a much more thorough and comprehensive approach to retraining your dog.

All behavior counseling sessions are conducted by Linda Brodzik. With over 35 years of experience and continuing education in the science of behavior and learning and teaching theory, this assures you the very highest level of professional guidance. You will never be paired with a less educated or less experienced trainer. Check out Linda’s educational background and experience on her Bio page.

  • Aggression directed towards people/children
  • Aggression towards other dogs

When working one-on-one with dog owners, each client and case is met with individualized attention and concern. Consultations are conducted at the client’s home as we feel this allows for a greater opportunity for a thorough assessment of the concerning behavior(s) and the contributing factors.

Each behavior case is met with a comprehensive assessment and personalized guidance through a detailed, individualized retraining program. Emphasis is first placed on educating the dog owner in a better understanding of the dog’s behavior problem(s), and better teaching and management skills. We then take these skills and teach you how to successfully apply them to your dog’s retraining program.

Equal emphasis is placed upon empowering both the owner and the dog with the skills and tools needed to be successful in your individual program and in real life situations. All training is based in scientifically researched and proven positive reinforcement based methodologies.
