DOG TRAINING & BEHAVIOR

Our award winning Dog Behavior Program paves the way for stress-free living with your dog. We know severe behaviors inside and out and our experienced trainers offer endless support to owners who need it most.

Our Philosophy: We use LIMA and balanced based training methods

Do you wish you could walk your dog without them pulling? Have you felt it's impossible for your dog to be around other dogs? Maybe you just got a puppy and want to give it a solid foundation?  Does it feel like your dog will always be anxious or afraid?  Has your dog bitten you, someone else or is aggressive towards other dogs or animals? 

 

Pack Leader Help gives owners the tools, knowledge and understanding to help create a calm, happy dog they never thought was possible. We understand that normal "Dog Training" isn't tailored to yours or your dogs specific lifestyle or behavior. Almost all of our clients have worked with other "dog trainers" where the training is focused on obedience by bribing the dog into certain physical position (sit, down, stay, heel, etc.) without any focus on the state of mind of the dog or more importantly, the owner. It's vital we, as owners, use dog psychology and communication, to work with our dogs. Although obedience is a part of what we do, our calm and confident relationship building is our biggest tool when working with dogs and our hands-on approach is guaranteed to make your next walk stress-free and your home more peaceful.

 

Dog Behavior Training Sessions:

Our in-home rehabilitation and training program includes 1-2 hour sessions in your home to show you how to tackle any behavioral issue.  It will begin with an initial 1 1/2 hour consultation and training session to asses any behavioral problems, educate and show owners with hands-on training how to tackle them and then create a program designed for owner and dog. After our session you get follow up video, reading and/or podcast homework so you're not left confused on your next steps to helping your pup.

REQUIREMENTS TO WORK WITH PLH

  1. Understand that I am required to exercise my dog mentally and physically every day(depending on age and energy level of my dog)

  2. The ENTIRE FAMILY is 100% on board with the training. Inconsistency will lead to wasting time and money and we can't convince family members to care for a living creature

  3. Understand although we use LIMA we are balanced trainers

  4.  Multi dog households must train together. You cannot compartmentalize the dogs in the home. We train all humans and all dogs in the home together.
