Aggression is one of the most common behavioral issues seen in dogs today. Various types of aggression can include leash aggression, human aggression, fear aggression, dog aggression, food aggression, territorial aggression, fence aggression, and small animal aggression. At Beyond The Leash, we are regularly asked for aggressive dog training. While there is never a guarantee any type of aggression will completely go away, most owners are able to see significant improvement with proper training. Sometimes aggression is simply a product of the lack of structure in a dog’s life. Call us today to find out how we can help with your dog’s aggressive behavior.
“We can’t thank Scott enough for all that he has done with our 5 year old Bernese Mountain Dog Brutus. Prior to finding Scott, we were at a loss as to what we were going to do with Brutus. We have three small children and one on the way and Brutus started becoming very territorial and protective of our children. His aggression towards strangers was unpredictable and we were nervous allowing strangers to enter our home. This really made our lives difficult as we worried that Brutus would lash out at any time. That is until we contacted Scott. We sent Brutus off to work with Scott. When he came home, it was clear that it was the best choice we could have made.
We can also tell that Brutus is a happier dog overall and isn’t stressed out like he was before. This has helped to calm our nerves and has created a happier environment for our whole family. We know now when we hear a knock at our door, we can tell Brutus to head to his bed and he will go and stay there without any resistance. Prior to Scott’s help, a knock at the door created a huge amount of anxiety throughout the house, as we would fear what Brutus might do. We are continuing to work with Scott now that Brutus is home. His sessions are helping us to be better dog owners. We are also very thankful that Scott is available to answer our smallest questions and gets back to us promptly. Our only regret is that we didn’t find Scott sooner!”

“We want to thank you for the wonderful work you did with our puppy Chaco. Before he went to Beyond the Leash Boot Camp, he had become so aggressive we were afraid of him, and we were worried that he may need to be put down. Now, he is a happy, well-behaved little guy. The difference is dramatic. He allows himself to be brushed and groomed, which was impossible before Boot Camp.
Just as important, your counsel and follow-up classes are teaching us how we need to behave in order to consistently reinforce his new behavior. We are so grateful to you for your expert guidance, and we are looking forward to using the training methods you taught us to ensure that Chaco’s behavior sticks as he grows into a wonderful, full grown Wheaten Terrier.”
