Dog Behavioral Consulting in Spotsylvania and Stafford Virginia
Occasionally, dogs develop behavioral issues that negatively effect the quality of life of both the dog and its people. At Wag Ur Tail Dog Training, Mike Morrison is familiar with both common and not so common dog behaviors that can come between man and his (or her) best friend.
Mike will begin by assessing the dog’s lifestyle and the presenting behavior(s) as well as the interaction between the dog and its owner(s). He will then form a bond with the dog(s) and begin to focus on the dog’s positive behaviors as well as teach the dog new behaviors to replace the anti-social or destructive behaviors. Examples of these include barking, biting, digging, resource guarding (defending food or toys from other dogs or from people), destructive behaviors, and anxious behaviors, to name a few.
If your dog has developed a behavior that is causing trouble, then a call to Wag Ur Tail Dog Training is a good start toward learning how to fix the problem so that you and your dog can live happily together. Or, if you have rescued or adopted a dog that is struggling to acclimate to your family’s lifestyle, Mike can again, assess the behavior(s) and recommend techniques and methods for replacing or extinguishing unwanted behavior while strengthening and introducing appropriate, desirable behavior.
Reviews from Wag Ur Tail Dog Training alumni speak for themselves:
I am absolutely amazed at the progress our dog has made in such a short amount of time. She was so skittish we couldn’t take her out any enjoy ourselves without being worried about her. Everyone wants to pet her but she is terrified (wouldn’t bite just terrified) . . . Mike has been absolutely wonderful in giving us tips and tricks. If one thing doesn’t work he is good at trying something else that would. I would definitely recommend him.Emily Famoso
I have two Great Danes under the age of two, and the techniques we have learned from Mike have made a huge difference in our ability to live with them! His approach is very positive and you can tell he really cares about dogs.Lynn McFadden
Mike is great and a very effective trainer! Our 14 mos old husky mix was jumping and barking whenever we took her out in public. He worked with us to curtail that behavior and she is like a different dog! Highly recommend him!!!Annette Aluzas
