Anxiety and Aggression Dog Training
One of the most difficult, necessary, and rewarding behaviors to correct in a dog is anxiety and aggression. Anxiety and aggression is a behavior that can be learned, genetic, or innate. When a dog feels threatened, the two natural responses will be fight or flight. Most dogs will attempt to put as much distance between themselves and the threat; if the threat remains they will then turn to aggression or submit. Other dogs are overly confident pack leaders and will turn first to aggression. Both of these reactions stem from anxiety and can be fixed with a balanced positive dog training approach.

Dog Training Elite Behavior Modification Process
Dog Training Elite behavior modification process is highly personalized: we work to empower owners as they work alongside our professional your local area trainers to build confidence and understanding in their dogs. We work with owners in their home to slowly retrain a dog’s reactions to stressful situations and then work to integrate them back into the community.
We will first meet the dog in a free in-home assessment to gain an understanding of the reasons for the aggression, anxiety or fears. We will assess triggers and build a personalized training program for each unique dog and targeting their specific behavior. For anxious dogs, our trainers will work alongside owners to build confidence.
For overly aggressive dog training we will help owners establish a pack leader position in the home. We will work to desensitize a dog to their biggest triggers and anxiety and when the dog has reached a safe baseline obedience level in these situations we then introduce them to our class settings. A muzzle is required for class settings to ensure the safety of all dog as these classroom settings are designed to integrate the dog back into social settings successfully.

Our Balanced Theory
We base our training around the "Classical Conditioning" model (a.k.a. "Pavlovian" or "respondent conditioning"). This includes developing conditioned or automatic reflexes to commands. In its simplest form (after proper conditioning), when the owner says "sit," the dog automatically sits without thinking about it. Our unique techniques ensure our program is a success no matter what behavior we encounter.
