Long Island Dog Training Services for Aggressive Dogs
Not all aggression is the same, as a matter of fact the implementation of this site was for that very same reason; we just felt that there is way too much information, complex information to be placed on our initial site.
There are so many different levels of aggression in dogs. There are also so many different types of dog aggression: fear aggression (this is very common), dog on dog aggression, food aggression, dog on dog food aggression, people aggression, resource guarding, territorial aggression, handler aggression, dominant aggression, and the list of aggression in dogs go on and on.
Because aggressive dog training has so many variables involved, including the dog or puppy owner’s views on dog ownership,we MUST schedule a consultation; this consult takes approximately sixty (60) minutes. Included is a long questionnaire to get an accurate idea of what is going on in the household, the causes and effects, the trigger(s), the severity, the current method of handling (many times, this encourages or augments the aggression).
During the consultation we will of course, evaluate your puppy or dog, determine what type of aggression(s) he or she possesses, the severity, the triggers and methods to change the response. We will also make recommendation on things that you can implement to create a more balanced life-style for the dog, but more importantly for your family and the dog.
At the conclusion of the consult, you will receive via email a detailed report (1 to 4 pages, usually) with suggestions for a DIY program (again this is dependent on the type of aggression and recommendation to a partnered program with Dedicated Dog Training. Although, the outcome, unlike your more conventional dog training can’t be predicted with great accuracy (this is because aggression in dogs are driven by emotions, not conscience decisions, with genetics playing a vitalrole on how far a dog can go), you will receive a round-about, ball park figure, if you will on what your expectations should be.
At the very least, you will be armed with a better understanding of your dog’s aggression diagnosis, the severity, and suggestions on how to prevent liabilities, as well as DIY programs, and our recommendations regarding a program where you are partnered with us. But most importantly, you will receive an idea of realistic expectations.
