The Behaviour Modification Programme specifically targets dogs who display extreme or aversive behaviour towards humans, other dogs or both.
Certain triggers tend to elicit different behaviours within dogs. When these exhibited aggressive behaviours are sporadic and not particularly frequent training can become a rather arduous process for an owner.
WE SUPPORT ALL BREEDS OF DOGS
The training targets the triggers that cause your dog to act aggressively and attempts to change their current mentality towards them.
At Royvon, we utilise positive reinforcement to train our guests out of their unwanted behaviour, ensuring that owners feel completely safe and secure when taking their dogs out and meeting others.
Our aim is to help you to fully capitalise on your journey with your dog and to make training an enjoyable activity, rather than a daunting and gruelling chore.
TYPES OF ANXIETIES THAT WE SUPPORT
DOES YOUR DOG GET FRANTIC AND OUT OF CONTROL SOMETIMES?
Is it hard for them to cope in some situations. This can lead to undesirable behaviours like frantic barking, growling, lunging, spinning, mouthing, chasing, cowering or bolting away.
Does your dog become unresponsive or fixated when he sees another dog, a stranger, another animal or a car?
Is your dog aggressively possessive over objects or places?
Does your dog growl or try to bite you when you handle them?
Is your dog reluctant to walk into a vet exam room or walk past traffic?
We can help with all of these behaviours
EXERCISES TO DEVELOP THEIR CONFIDENCE
WE UNDERSTAND HOW THE SITUATION AFFECTS YOU
These behaviour challenges can be very upsetting and result in huge cost, isolation, stress and inconvenience to the whole family. Walks and visits from friends and family can become a nightmare and your life suddenly revolves around your dog’s problem.
You are filled with frustration, confusion and guilt. It doesn’t have to be this way.
The first step to behaviour change is understanding what’s going on from your dog’s point of view.
What function does this problem behaviour have for them?
What else is in the bigger picture?
What changes can be made in the dog’s environment and lifestyle to aid the process of changing the emotions and mental states that are linked to your dog’s problem behaviour.
An experienced trainer and behaviour specialist can analyse the situation, and identify the contributing factors . They can identify what management and control strategy to use and offer advice on what skills you and your dog should learn.
This can be a steep learning curve for both you and your dog. It’s easy to get frustrated when the progress is slow and you’re learning by trial and error. This is why so many people give up at this stage. We can help by working with your dog first, then coaching you both as a team.
