In need of a pro who is good at training an aggressive dog? Consider hiring Kenny. This skilled individual offers canine behavior modification services in Austin.
Most times, dominance or train with pain trainers will explain the dog is aggressive because they are “power hungry”; when in fact they are not fighting for rank, they are fighting to survive. Survival is achieved with a strong protector in charge, not an unstable, confrontational one.
The last couple of months, I have been contacted by several new clients with human aggressive dogs. Now this is not that surprising because I specialize in aggression cases, but the cases are unfortunately leading back to improper handling from professionals in the canine behavior field. I will not name names, or businesses and the point of this article is to educate owners of the potential danger of some training techniques being used. The following are real case files from owners that I have recently had. The only thing that was changed is the names, the rest of the material are the owners own encounters.

Austin Dog Training Blog – Resolving Leash Aggression
I started my career as a veterinary technician, where I quickly observed the lack of communication between human and dog. This is when I decided to dedicate my life to helping humans understand their dogs. I became known in New York as "the groomer that would groom any dog," and opened a thriving dog grooming/dog training business. For 13 years, local groomers, trainers, and veterinarians would refer dogs that no one wanted to handle. I have never turned a dog away because I believe, unless there is a medical reason, any dog can be rehabilitated with the right program. My methods are based on how dogs communicate with each other by following their natural instincts, and, most importantly, keeping them in a "working-mind." My own pack includes 12 wonderful rescue dogs, all of which had serious aggression issues, and now are all "good citizens" that help us help other dogs resolve their issues.In our Austin and during our private dog coaching sessions, we cover all aspects of basic dog obedience as well as dog behavior modification.

That is okay. Dog aggression and dog anxiety cases are not for every dog trainer.

If you find yourself with an aggressive dog, please contact us to discuss your options rather than just dropping your dog off at the shelter.
