Canine Behavior Modification
The Dog Behavior Modification program is designed to correct and adjust unwanted behavior displayed by an owner's dog. Hong Kong Canine's training method uses applied canine behavior analysis and operant conditioning principles. These techniques have been demonstrated to solve many canine behavioral issues including: fear, anxiety, aggression, shyness, neurosis, resource guarding and biting.
Our objective is to find a workable solution that is both practical and safe. Starting in a controlled environment is important and will be discussed with owners in detail.
The canine evaluation and behavioral analysis interview is the first step and takes up to 90 to 120 minutes - sometimes longer. This will help diagnose the underlying cause(s) of the problem. A successful diagnosis can not be achieved over the phone. An evaluation of the dog should be scheduled in advance. This evaluation only provides information as to the probable causes. Should the client opt for a package, it shall be considered as the first lesson.
Private lessons are tailored to the needs of you and your dog. They are customized and can be conducted either in-home or at an agreed location. Depending on the initial diagnosis it may require a combination of both. The owner's presence during lessons is welcomed and under certain circumstances required. Lessons will usually last about an hour.
Our priority is teaching the owner to understand the root cause of the problem. Thereafter, we teach them to work with their dog to achieve the desired results. If the owner can not attend training sessions this is okay. The canine behavior modification program still remains a reliable option for correcting behavior problems. The owner simply needs to be consistent with the training presented.
Note Hong Kong Canine works with breeds of all ages and sizes.
