Destructive Chewing

Did you know that when dogs get bored, they’ll find ways to entertain themselves, even when you’re not home? If you’ve ever come home to a chewed-up shoe or torn-up couch, your dog was likely finding a way to release pent up energy while you were away. Depending on the type of breed your dog is and their previously learned behaviors, our certified dog trainers can help pinpoint the reason for your dog’s destructive behavior. Once we have an understanding of your dog’s background, we will work to create a customized training plan to correct this behavior.

Dog Aggression Training

Dog aggression can come in a variety of forms and isn’t always a full-on attack towards another human or animal. There can be subtle signs of dog aggression, such as growling when you reach for your dog’s collar or becoming protective and baring their teeth over food and toys. If your dog is showing signs of aggression towards other people or animals, it’s important to know that you’re not alone. More often than not, your dog’s aggression is due to fear or anxiety and there are a variety of approaches to correcting their unwanted behavior. When you schedule a dog training session with one of our professional dog trainers, we’ll work with you and your dog one-on-one to correct these aggressive behaviors quickly and efficiently.

Aggressive Barking or Whining

Does your dog bark at people or other dogs from the house window? When you leave the house, does your pup whine or howl because they don’t like being left alone? While there could be many causes of your dog’s aggressive barking or whining, including separation anxiety, your dog is likely barking out of fear. At The Dog Wizard, we understand how frustrating it can be to feel like you have no control over your dog’s impulsive and aggressive behavior. When you work with our dog trainers, we will teach you and your dog new ways to communicate using the latest in dog training and positive reinforcement techniques.
