Canine Behaviour Modification

There are many types of unwanted behaviour displayed by dogs that we help to balance. These include:

- Reactivity towards other dogs (barking and physical aggression)

- Reactivity towards humans (barking and physical aggression)

- Separation Anxiety (unable to cope being left alone)

- Fear Response (fear of certain things such as skateboards, buses and motorbikes)

- Possessive Disorder (possessive over people, food and/or toys)

There are several possible reasons that cause this kind of unwanted behaviour. Examples of reasons include lack of confidence and improper pack placement. At your Behaviour and Obedience Assessment, we will pinpoint the cause of the behaviour and once this has been determined, we can begin the process of behaviour modification.

For some modules, it will be necessary for your pet to come and stay with us for a period of time. During this stay, they will join our pack, learn how to stand on their own four paws and how to be dog! The dogs roam, play, eat and sleep together as one pack, supervised 24/7 by the Lupine Canine Team.

The first step towards commencing training is to arrange a Behaviour & Obedience Assessment here!

Dog training is the application of behavior analysis which uses the environmental events of antecedents and consequences to modify the behavior of a dog, either for it to assist in specific activities or undertake particular tasks, or for it to participate effectively in contemporary domestic life. While training dogs for specific roles dates back to Roman times at least, the training of dogs to be compatible household pets developed with suburbanization in the 1950s.

The responses of your dog, individually or in a group to internal and external stimuli. It has been shaped by millennia of contact with humans and their lifestyles. As a result of this physical and social evolution, dogs, more than any other species, have acquired the ability to understand and communicate with humans and they are uniquely attuned to their behaviours.

Our instructor/trainer will work closely with you and your dog, to address any negative behavioural issues your dog displays, extinguish them or, in rare cases where the dog will not fully rehabilitate, provide management protocols to initiate in any given reactive environment, seeding control to the handler and simultaneously making your dog compliant. Lupine Canine train dogs to comply with the UK Dangerous Dogs Act 1991, an essential level of competency to keep you and your dog within the law. Lupine Canine has a 100% success rate of rehabilitating formerly aggressive dogs within 3 months, the typical duration of a behaviour modification programme. We succeed where all others would recommend euthanasia as the only solution. We are very proud of our achievements in this respect, having prevented the unnecessary death of many dogs under our care.
