Behavior modification in dogs works to change behavioral issues that your dog may have. It deals with behavioral problems such as aggression towards people, other dogs and animals, fear, and anxiety. These problems can be caused by misunderstanding, stress and pressure, unpleasant passed experiences, poor training, and/or mistreatment by previous owners. We work to build a strong, trusting bond with the dog along with a foundation in obedience to help get these issues in check and we understand that not every dog reacts the same way and are able to tailor the dog’s training to your specific needs.
Joe Secreti, himself, has over 30 years of experience dealing with dogs of all kinds, many that have severe behavioral issues. He has a natural knack for manipulating behaviors away from the negative ones your dog may have learned and towards a more favorable relationship. Many of Joe’s dogs over the years have been problematic and he has years of hands on experience training shelter dogs with unknown pasts, fighting dogs, bait dogs, environmentally deprived dogs, aggressive dogs, and fearful dogs with high levels of anxiety. The Maximum K9 staff has been trained to deal with and rehabilitate these dogs. Our trainers spend time evaluating the dog and family, understanding the needs of both, and implementing a plan to obtain the best possible relationship between the two. We offer free, in-store evaluations to determine the best course of training for you and your dog.
