Behavioral Therapy

Behavioral therapy programs are ideal for dogs with reactivity or aggression towards other dogs or people. Jenny will work with you to develop and implement a custom training plan, help you identify triggers and teach your dog to stay calm around triggers. Both private training (we train with you) and day/stay training (we train for you) are available.

Our service area is St. Louis county. If you are outside of this range, a travel fee may apply.

Jenny will teach you to:

  • Identify and predict your dog’s aggressive or fearful episodes
  • Install and manage safety measures for household members and animals
  • Train your dog to be less fearful or aggressive

Common cases include:

  • reactivity or aggression towards dogs or people on leash
  • reactivity toward people (strangers) entering the home
  • resource guarding

We Train For You

Day Training

Our day training program is ideal for busy households who may not have time daily to practice training. It is also a less stressful alternative to board and train programs – your dog can get intensive training with a professional trainer in their home environment.

Day training programs includes a free initial consultation, at least two weeks of day training and weekly transfer lessons where Jenny reviews everything your dog has learned that week.

2 Week Program – starts at $800

This plan is ideal for those working on mild behavioral problems as well as general manners and obedience. For those working on more difficult behaviors, a longer program may be required.

  • 1 free phone consultation to discuss your case and set training goals (30-45 minutes)
  • 2 weeks of day training (3 lessons per week, lessons are 60 minutes)
  • 3 weekly private lessons (60 minutes) to transfer skills
  • Phone and email support during your program

Day training programs are customized for every case. Please reach out to schedule an initial consultation to develop a training plan. Fees may change depending on program length and location.

Stay and Train

Our stay and train program is another alternative for board and train – combining in-home pet sitting with day training. This program is designed specifically for dogs with dog aggression, who may not be well-suited for boarding when their family is out of town.

Stay and train programs are customized specifically to your dog’s training goals and your trip length. They can be combined with both private training or day training to create a complete training program.

Please inquire for pricing (depends on your location, training goals and overall program).
