Professional In Home Dog Behavioral Modification and Dog Training Services
Here at Total Pet Care, we provide you with a service of in-home dog behavior training and education. This means we will come to your home to assess the situation the issue with your four legged family member. Lots of times destructive behavior and outbreaks can happen with a lack of the correct communication between you and your pet. These sessions are usually an hour long and we will ask you to show us the issues you’re having, when these issues happen, and why you think they happen. We then will go over what is triggering the behavior and we will show you the correct way to communicate what you want to your dog. Let’s make this a positive experience for the both of you!!
→ We strive for results within the first session.
→ We do not recommend changing your routine with your pet before your training session.
→ We recommend having a clicker, a 15 to 20 ft. long line and high value treats for your first session.
→ Patience is required.

If you have a new puppy or adult dog or a new rescue and you are looking for some help, we offer you a chance to grow with your dog through in home dog training. In our experience reactivity, aggression and resource guarding are some of the main reasons why dogs are misplaced. We would like to give you and your dog the opportunity to reconcile before this happens, through positive reinforcement. We like to tackle these situations through love and commitment as a team. We will be with you every step of the way and show you exactly what you need to do to communicate with your animal so both of you have a high rate of success during your training process.
Sessions are one on one with you and a certified pet dog trainer. Sessions last about 45 minutes to an hour. This is great for pet parents who love their animals and are looking for a trainer to help them work through their challenges along the way with their dogs. If you have taken your dog to classes already and notice that it might not be sticking in a home setting, then this is for you. Give us a call and be on your way to a better relationship with your friend!
