Heart and Soul
This is a behavior modification program that employs TBTE methods. TBTE was developed by Mark McCabe with the primary objective of removing conflict from relationships and training, and to the greatest degree possible not just changing the external behavior of the dog but actually changing the internal states and perspectives of the dog that drive problem behaviors. It is TBTE’s goal to help a dog to be able not just to choose not to do bad things or to follow commands of their owners, but to get them to prefer to behave in ways that are better for their happiness, emotional and physical wellness and success in their world. This program will help dogs who are anxious, fearful, hyperactive, reactive, out of control, destructive and/or aggressive.
These lessons are designed to introduce your dog to the foundation commands like leash manners, Come, Stay, Place, Wait, Leave It, Quiet, Off, Down, Stand, Heel, Move Sit and Stand. This opens up a line of communication between the owner and the dog so they can understand one another and live a happier, safer, less stressed life. The lessons are tailored to your individual needs/goals/challenges.
