Behavior Assessment

Does your dog have anxiety, fear or aggression? We help dogs like your all the time! We’ll start with a behavior assessment. We will discuss what your needs are for your dog, your dog’s history and practice cues that will lead them in the right direction. It is 90 to 120 minutes in length and will be held in your home with you & your dog present. We’ll review their behavior history, exercise routine, among other important factors. After the assessment  we will email you an overview of the history and plans of the initial session. This assessment acts as a consult to gather all necessary information to insure you and your dog will be given the correct training and techniques to address your dog’s case. Foundation cues, immediate actions and management techniques are all taught during this assessment! This is a huge value!

Testimonials:

“Lauren has an amazing talent helping people and dogs communicate.  My dog, Kira, and I have taken several classes and the results have been nothing short of phenomenal.  The force free methods have stayed with us years later. But, beyond teaching my dog obedience and fun tricks, I learned how to read my dog’s body language. Kira is my first dog, and this extra knowledge has been invaluable. I can’t recommend Happy Hounds and Beyond enough.”
