Follow-Up Training 

Follow-up training is a part of most behavior modification plans.  

Problem behaviors generally develop over time.  They are often triggered by something in the dog’s environment.  It takes time to undo what the dog has come to believe.

Where does training take place? Your home, my office, a public park — anywhere the problem behaviors occur. 

How long will we need to meet? That depends on several things — the severity of the problem and the time you can commit to training between meetings.

How will I know my dog is getting better? I often use photography and video to record your dog’s behavior or reactions.  I use the images to teach you what your dog looks like as he becomes distressed.  This is also a great way to measure progress — the reduction of stress signals in your dog equals progress in the training.
