Behaviour Adjustment Programmes

 

Changing any animal's behaviour, is not a task you should undertake lightly, and it takes time, dedication & patience. There is no 'quick fix' solution, and any trainer who offers you one, should be avoided. It’s easy to remember the anxiety and stress you feel, when your dog offers unwanted behaviours in public areas. However, we need to take a moment to consider how your dog feels, at that difficult moment. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Why is my dog like this?

There are many reasons as to why your dog has a particular behaviour. It could be from a lack of early socialisation, or none at all, medical issues, a traumatic past either by human hand or by dog's, be protective by nature or breed, or even be passed down genetically, to name but a few.

 

Unfortunately, this type of behaviour doesn’t go away on its own. Most people hope that their dog will grow out of it, but if left untreated, the behaviour will simply get worse both in frequency & intensity. Neither aggression nor fear can be punished out of a dog.

Standard Reactivity Programme

This package is for low level reactivity dogs, to either dogs or humans, or dogs needing help in one specific area. This programme will suit dogs that have not been involved in a traumatic experience, is a fairly new or recent behaviour, or for dogs that can be around their trigger at times without reacting, or have a low level reaction.

Advanced Reactivity Programme

This package is designed for dogs who are reactive to a trigger anywhere, or have been for some time. This programme would be for dogs that wouldn't or haven't bitten, are known to the owners since birth with a full history, and that would benefit to the extra training sessions it offers over the standard. This programme has a set number of training sessions.

Custom Reactivity Programmes

These custom programmes are for dogs that have a bite history or would bite, dogs with a traumatic, unknown or difficult past, dogs with extreme trauma, severe reactivity, rescue dogs that need completely re-building or rehabilitating, or dogs with little to no socialising.

Muddy Paws Dog Training are strong advocates of purely positive training, and do not use any training techniques, that result in causing any dog pain or fear, to your best friend. Your dog just needs help, is probably scared, or just wants to feel safe, and that's what we focus on first.

Please note. Though we cover all of Co.Kerry travelling to you, if you are 30km from us, we do charge fuel costs of the journey.
