What is Behaviour Modification for Dogs?
Unlike dog obedience classes that train dogs to perform specific actions, behaviour modification classes aim to change a dog's reaction to specific situations, to people, things, or other animals. Our classes provide a systematic method of changing behaviour and attitude.

Private Puppy and Private Dog Training With Andy
Whether you've had your beloved dog for years or you've brought them home recently, Andy can show you exactly how to solve any behavioral issues or simply get your new puppy or dog to be well behaved in all situations.
Andy has her Dog Behaviour and Training Methodology (DBTM), Dog Socialization, Dog Temperament Assessment Training, Dog Shelter Behaviour, and Training, as well as her Certified Behaviour Consultant Canine Knowledge Assessment (CBCC-KA).
Andy is currently pursuing an undergraduate degree and once that is completed she plans on obtaining her master's degree in animal behaviour and welfare. Her dream is to operate a rescue for dogs with significant behavior issues.
"Helping dogs is my purpose and my passion. There is no better feeling than helping a scared dog feel safe. I think continuing education is the key to being a great canine consultant so I am always pushing myself to learn more about dogs and translate that knowledge into real life. I feel very fortunate that people trust me with their dogs and take that trust very seriously. Helping people form a better understanding of their dog's behaviour allows them to form a stronger bond and it's really rewarding to be a part of that experience."
