AGGRESSION/behavior modification

Aggressive Training In Nashville

Aggression issues plague many dog households. Often aggression falls heavily on communication issues. Dogs get confused about what is expected of them and take it upon themselves to interpret their response to situations and interactions.

Thus when dogs fall back on instinctual drives behaviors such as resource guarding, object obsession, being protective, aggressive, and possessive can all work their way to the surface and become a safety issue.

Any dog with an aggressive past or bite history should NEVER be off-leash in a public setting. The ends never justify the means and you must protect other people from getting bitten by your dog. It is always your responsibility to have positive control over your dog at all times. Never assume the dog is rehabilitated, it is still a living creature and thinks for itself. Always set your dog up for success. Manage your dog and manipulate the environment for the betterment of your dog.

Ridgeside K9 – Nashville, TN offers programs to meet the needs of every dog, regardless of age, size, or severity of the problem. Call us to schedule an evaluation and build the perfect behavior modification program for you and your dog.

aggression rehab Packages / pricing

Four to Six-Week Aggression Control Rehabilitation Packages (5 months and over)

Our aggression rehab program lasts between four and six weeks. Our trainers will work with dogs that are aggressive toward people and or other animals. Such dogs may snarl, snap, or even attack. Our animal behaviorist will first identify the cause of aggression, which can include fear, dominance, insecurity, and much more. Once the cause is determined, we will build a plan to help your dog.

During our rehab program, we will teach your dog how to behave appropriately both at home and in a public environment like a park or store. 

Your dog will stay with us for the duration of training. During training, we will work on obedience and control as we also work on your dog’s aggression issues. Dealing with aggressive dogs is NOT a quick fix; that is why training is much longer. Also, not all dogs can be rehabilitated. We cannot change the genetic composition, but we will give you absolute control of your dog and teach you how to handle it.

 

Pricing: $4,300  (all training packages are all-inclusive)

aggression vs reactivity

Many dogs that are tagged as “aggressive” actually belong squarely in the “reactive” category, an important distinction as improperly classifying dogs as aggressive can earn them injurious labels like “dangerous” when intent to harm is actually absent.

For dogs, these cues in body language are communicative, serving as warning signals that they are not comfortable in the current situation. It is not until these signs of stress are ignored or overlooked that a dog will change costumes and escalate its behavior in order to reduce its stress.
