The Mission Programs

$1,000-$10,000

We help you build harmony by teaching and supporting your practice of gauging and reducing your dog’s stress level. We help you build the structure of your relationship by teaching you to demonstrate to your dog that you control the timing of events and their immediate environment. Then, we show you how to use that control to create clear boundaries and expectations for their behavior. Finally, we teach you how to communicate quickly and clearly with your dog, by being an example, giving you helpful resources, and providing a support system to help guide your development. These programs teach you to:

  • Help your dog achieve a calm state of mind when you are alone or around distractions.
  • Set clear boundaries and expectations for your dog so they know how you expect them to behave.
  • Communicate clearly with your dog
    • You will learn how to teach your dog by communicating your ideas.
    • You will learn to read, acknowledge, and act on your dog’s body language and intentions, allowing you to gain information from their behavior. 
    • We will study effective strategies to improve your ability to get your dog’s attention and focus, especially around distractions.

These skills will enable you to build a strong relationship with your dog. A strengthened relationship with your dog will help YOU STOP the following behaviors: 

  • Pulling on the leash
  • Leash reactivity 
  • Poor behavior when guests arrive
  • Counter-surfing 
  • Over-excitement 
  • Barking out window
