It's frustrating, frightening and heartbreaking to share your life with a dog who displays aggressive, fearful or reactive behavior. Behavior problems can be the result of genetics,  lack of proper socialization, trauma, abuse/neglect, illness or anxiety.  

We will discuss the causes of many common  behavior problems:
  • fear based aggression
  • separation anxiety
  • confinement anxiety
  • resource guarding
  • sound phobia 
  • storm phobia 
  • dog-to-dog aggression
  • dog-to human aggression
  • on-leash reactivity 
  • generalized anxiety 
Michelle McCarthy is a nationally recognized Certified Dog Behavior Consultant with the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants (IAABC). Dog Behavior Consultants are required to demonstrate competency in five core areas including  assessment and intervention strategies, counseling skills, behavioral science, knowledge of animal behavior and species-specific knowledge in order to obtain certification through the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants.   

We will discuss intervention/treatment/training options using humane science based protocols.   If your dogs behavior problems are left untreated or handled inappropriately, it can escalate into dangerous behavior.  Some behavior problems are the result of an underlying medical condition.  We will discuss when Veterinary intervention is required.  Michelle works closely with the staff at Lane Animal Hospital to provide comprehensive treatment plans and support for dogs and their families.  

This workshop is for HUMANS only, please leave your dog home.
