About Our Aggression Board and Train

Our aggression rehab program lasts between four to six weeks and is designed to work through problems like growling, snarling, baring teeth, lunging, nipping and biting or even attacking other dogs or people.

During this program, your dog spends their full time with us to be fully immersed in a controlled environment to allow our trainers to work through the aggression and create a set of skills and management tools for you to safely live with your dog. These tools include a clear language of leash pressure, marker words, Ecollar pressure, and obedience. This will allow you to have control over your dog inside and out of the home. It’s important to understand that dealing with aggression is NOT a quick fix which is why we require more time than a traditional Board and Train Program. Not all dogs can be rehabilitated as we cannot change genetic predisposition. We can, however, provide you with the skills needed to safely manage your dog.
