Effective Dog Behavior Training Begins & Ends With Dog Psychology

As dog behaviorists, we often we face underlying issues that require research and investigation. For instance, when dogs are not socialized properly, they often lash out at other dogs. Or, there may be a persistent environmental cue that your dog finds stressful, which then translates into fearful behavior. Sometimes what appears to be aggression may just be overly assertive behavior or lack of self-control. This is the type of insight we provide at The Grainne Levine’s Institute for Wayward Dogs.

To bring about lasting behavioral change, we use operant conditioning to address negative responses while teaching acceptable behavior. This involves a combination of reward training and consequences.
