Behavioural modification sessions are indicated for dogs that exhibit behaviours such as barking, growling, lunging or biting.
Dogs that can't deal with frustration, that have stress, fear or are anxious, and dogs that don't know how to be alone at home.
In these individual and personalized sessions, adapted to the family and the individual, I will help the guardian to understand the behaviour that your dog presents, in addition to transmitting the knowledge and techniques necessary for the best evolution of the dog.

There are no aggressive dogs, but dogs that can exhibit aggressive behaviours in certain contexts and learning.
Having a dog that presents this type of behaviour can be emotionally draining and the guardian does not have to deal with this situation alone!
My job is precisely to help you understand and develop a relationship with your dog so that you can better enjoy the moments together!
Commonly called reactivity or leash reactivity.
It is an uncontrolled and inappropriate aggressive behaviour elicited by lack of emotional control.
Controlled aggressive behaviour, with a purpose/objective.
Aggressive behaviour directed at other species.
For example, aimed at humans.
Aggressive behaviour directed at members of the same species, dogs.
Aggression related to Resource Guarding
Related to aggressive behaviours in the presence of something valuable to the dog, such as objects, people and places.
PROBLEMS WITH BEING home alone
There may be more than one cause for your dog to have behavioural problems when home alone.
Separation anxiety is a serious problem that should not be underestimated.
Behavioural and veterinary professional help should work together in the vast majority of cases.
Lack of Learning
Not knowing how to deal with being alone at home.
Common cause in puppies and young adults.
Lack of physical and mental stimulation is the most common cause for dogs that exhibit destructive behaviours.
Fear And Anxiety
Dogs that really suffer from separation anxiety may have different symptoms of anxiousness, such as howling, defecating or urinating.
FEAR | PHOBIAS | STRESS | ANXIETY
General restlessness, repetitive or compulsive behaviours, decontextualized panthing, whining, excessive barking, shaking, excessive drooling, avoiding social interactions, hiding or aggressive behaviours are some examples of behaviours often associated with stress and anxiety.
If you notice that your dog is more anxious or afraid of an object or situation than usual, I can help minimize and improve the daily life of your four-legged friend!
WE OFTEN USE THE TERMS "FEAR" AND "ANXIETY" INTERCHANGEABLY... BUT THEY DON'T MEAN THE SAME THING.
It is related to specific escape or 'freezing' behaviours.
Anticipation of the unknown (or future threats) from the dog's perspective.
Separation anxiety, generalized, environmental or social anxiety are some examples.
Excessive and persistent fear of a specific stimulus.
Phobia to sounds (e.g. thunderstorm or fireworks), to unknown people and situational are some examples.
Stress is an altered state of homeostasis that can be caused by physical or emotional factors that trigger behavioural, endocrine and immunological psychological effects (and responses) to deal with it.
These answers vary between individuals, depending on their experience, breed, age, among other factors.
Acute or chronic stress has an impact on both the behaviour and health of your dog in the long term.
