When your dog exhibits challenging behavior, it can cause turmoil and limit what you can do together. Cavalletto Canine’s Behavioral Consultations address common challenges at any stage.

Our approach focuses on the core of the problem using a variety of training techniques. Techniques include classical and operant conditioning, as well as desensitization strategies.
These tactics allow us to achieve positive and lasting results. Identifying the source of your dog’s challenges is a critical first step.  We’ll help you and your dog lead a happier, healthier and safer life by incorporating strategies into your everyday.

At Cavalletto Canine, our experience allows us to deal with a variety of conditions. We can help with common behavioral issues at varying degrees of severity such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Dog reactivity and dog-to-dog aggression
  • Aggression toward people
  • Resource guarding
  • Separation anxiety
  • Running away
  • Obsessive and compulsive challenges

Behavioral Consultation

Consultation is a critical first step. Behavioral issues are complicated and range in severity. These issues are often influenced by breed. They can also be caused by provoking stimuli such as fear, anxiety, past experience, environment, and others.

Cavalletto Canine will meet with you and your dog to assess problem behaviors. We’ll identify why they occur and recommend the counseling needed to achieve the desired result.

We specialize in helping people with difficult dogs. We work to create a customized training program based on the individual needs of each client. Some cases can be resolved in the consultation phase, while others may need additional training.

Cavalletto Canine works to desensitize your dog’s response to the provoking stimuli and condition them with positive rewards. We will teach you key techniques and training skills. These skills will provide the environment and consistent conditioning your dog will need to maintain new safe and healthy behaviors.
