Dogs have a unique capacity for emotion. Unfortunately, they do not have the spoken word to rely on when trying to communicate their fears and stresses. Sometimes they experience the world much differently than we expect. And these perceptions can trigger new, and for most, unexpected behaviors. Keeping in mind that anxiety is the underpinning of all aggressive displays, Training Your Best Friend LLC focuses on addressing the root of the anxiety to change the behavior. A dog that is punished or treated negatively for simply showing us how he/she is feeling, regardless of how that looks, will continue to get worst until the desired result is achieved. This is typically relief from the stressor.

The philosophy of Training Your Best Friend LLC is to provide positive and practical solutions to behavior issues that dog owners may experience. If you suspect that your dog is struggling with some kind of emotional distress and exhibiting questionable behavior, let us know. We can schedule an evaluation which includes a written assessment and a training plan outline. After the evaluation, the behavior plan is implemented. Your dog can make progress. Please note that some issues are a matter of management and adjustment. Unwanted behavior can be modified but aggression can not be “cured.” Any trainer who suggested using methods involving pain or dominance to “fix” you dog should be avoided.
