Behavior Help

for New York city dogs

Dealing with fear, aggression, and anxiety issues in the city is challenging. Small, shared living spaces and crowded sidewalks make it nearly impossible to simply avoid the situations that cause your dog to feel afraid or agitated.

We’ve spent the past decade perfecting practical, positive, effective training techniques to help city dogs struggling with fear, anxiety, and aggression.

Our Certified Dog Behavior Consultants Can Help With

• Fearful or aggressive behavior toward other dogs
• Fearful or aggressive behavior toward strangers or family members
• On-leash and in-building reactivity issues
• Issues with other pets in the home
• Resource guarding toys, food, or other items
• Confidence building on walks
• Separation anxiety (private lessons only)
• Trouble with veterinary exams or grooming visits
• And lots more!

Program Options

for Fear, Anxiety, and Aggression

Board & Train Camp

Give your dog a BIG head start on their behavior modification plan with one of our signature, positive reinforcement sleepaway Training Camps, before continuing the process back at home.
