My dog is…
- Frightened of something
- Anxious or nervous
- Guarding their food, toys, furniture or lap
- Barking and lunging on lead
- Doesn’t like being touched or groomed
We know that life with a dog isn’t always plain sailing. We modify behaviour to help you and your dog live together in harmony. We help you understand where behaviour difficulties in dogs come from. We only use proven techniques that effect change without force or harm. Humane and ethical science based methods are efficient and effective.
We are with you every step of the way.
together solutions creates a tailored behaviour change programme for you and your dog to restore harmony to your household.
Fear and Aggression at Together Dog Training
Just like us, our dogs can be frightened or scared by a great many things. I’m not too bad with going to the dentist but I can feel the anxiety rising as I go through the front door. Science has established that our dogs experience emotions much as we do, but of course, we can’t ask them how they feel.
Living with a dog who is anxious or fearful, who behaves aggressively, who’s guarding their food, their toys or your bed, who doesn’t like being touched or barks and lunges on lead can feel confusing, upsetting, embarrassing, frightening, disappointing or worrying.
Many of the behaviour problems that we see in dogs, stem from normal dog behaviour which just doesn’t mesh with living in a home with a human family. Just because it’s normal, doesn’t mean it’s okay. It’s important to understand that problem behaviours in dogs are not your fault and that positive dog training is positive for owners too.
Problem behaviours are modifiable without force. In the 21st Century we have superb behavioural modification techniques that effect change without harm to your dog or making your dog feel afraid.
Fear and Aggression in dogs is a huge subject encompassing many forms. To help you identify the help you need, we’ve divided our Together Solutions into three main categories. Like us, our dogs are all individuals, so no worries if no one category fits perfectly. For many fearful or anxious dogs, you may be experiencing a combination of issues. We will always help you find the best path forward with your dog using our knowledge, skills and experience.
