  Behavioral Programs

Tucker Pup's offers comprehensive training programs to help your dog overcome behavioral challenges such as:
  • Leash reactivity to humans or dogs
  • Separation anxiety
  • Resource guarding
  • Fear aggression
  • Nuisance barking
  • Elevator anxiety
  • Noise phobias
  • Barrier aggression / reactivity
  • Separation anxiety
  • Any other challenge related to fears, anxieties, reactivity, or low confidence

These behaviors are typically due to underlying causes such as fear, stress, or low confidence. Most often, the dog is trying to communicate that he is very unhappy, but the owners aren't aware, and keep putting him in negative situations. This can cause the dog to lash out, such as by gnashing teeth, biting, barking, or crying. This can lead to a frustrating life together, and can cause some people to ultimately surrender their dog to a shelter or rescue. We want to help you avoid this outcome!

In our Behavioral Modification program, we will identify the issues causing these behaviors, and what your dog is trying to communicate. We will then create a training plan to resolve them. This will include, but not be limited to, analyzing your dog's body language and your home environment, recommending new daily habits, working on home exercises, discussing tools and equipment that can help, and more.

Resolving these issues can also unlock your dog's ability to perform life skills, such as loose-leash walking, listening the first time, and much more.

By going through our Behavioral Modification program, we believe your dog will have the best chance at overcoming these challenges, and improving your quality of life together.

Marnie is the absolute best trainer and dog enthusiast I have ever met! The way she explains dog psychology so we can address the root cause of the behavioral issues is outstanding, and very easy to understand. She has incredible patience, not only with the dogs, but the humans too! The techniques that Marnie has suggested have been a lifesaver to improve my dog's leash reactivity, fear-based barking, and possessiveness. I also appreciate that she'll try various approaches based on how a dog learns and reacts to training. Marnie is the best!!!
