We really appreciated Lucinda's knowledge, care, and the support she provided to help us with our new rescue Toy Poodle. Her easy explanations and suggestions to help our little guy adjust to his new life were practical and easy to follow. We'd highly recommend her to anyone needing support with training their dog.

Our family of 5 engaged the help of Lucinda after our puppy started showing signs of anxiety and aggression. Her expertise has been invaluable, observing the dynamic in our household, watching our dog’s triggers and telling us why he’s reacting and how to set him (and us) up for success. With her help, we understand how to prevent triggers and best handle visitors with minimal stress to our dog and worry for us. Most recently, Lucinda had been working with us to manage anxiety on walks and when interacting with other dogs, which had reached heightened levels. We are very grateful for Lucinda. Her understanding of dog behaviour is exceptional and her approach is based on knowledge and study, never of fear tactics.

Lucinda was referred to me by my dogs groomer, as I would discuss with her his anxiety he had and she saw it herself. As a first time dog owner I couldn’t figure out how and what to do to ease his stress and anxiety especially when being outdoors. Well Lucinda came out to my house and within the hour she diagnosed Levi and was able to help us with a few little tricks and aids. She will continue to work with him, so we can get him to where he needs to be. I was so relieved that he will finally get the help he needs. Lucinda was amazing with the whole situation. She is very knowledgeable and definitely has a lot of experience behind her. My vet was incredibly impressed with her report she gave us upon visiting Levi, that they are keeping her name on file for future referrals. When I heard that, I knew I found the right trainer to work with him. I’m definitely looking forward to working with her. Thank you Lucinda, I am forever grateful.

Lucinda was very knowledgeable and helpful. She helped us understand what our dog was trying to tell us and taught us what we needed to know so that we could change our behaviour to support him. She was very professional, kind and supportive. Thank you Lucinda!

Only positive reinforcement and fear free methods

When group classes aren’t the right option! 

For dogs that expe­ri­ence fear, anx­i­ety or aggres­sion issues, group class­es may be over­whelm­ing.  An over aroused brain sim­ply can­not learn.  Private ses­sions can be the path to begin their reha­bil­i­ta­tion, reduc­ing trig­gers and build­ing confidence.

Why do I need a Canine Behaviourist?

 

You may need a canine behav­ior­ist for sev­er­al rea­sons, depend­ing on the spe­cif­ic behav­ioral issues and chal­lenges you are fac­ing with your dog. Here are some com­mon sit­u­a­tions where con­sult­ing a canine behav­ior­ist is advisable:

Complex Behavioral Problems

Canine behav­ior­ists are trained to address com­plex and severe behav­ioral issues that may be beyond the scope of basic train­ing. These prob­lems can include aggres­sion (toward peo­ple or oth­er ani­mals), severe anx­i­ety, pho­bias, com­pul­sive behav­iors, and more.

Safety Concerns

If your dog’s behav­ior pos­es safe­ty con­cerns for you, your fam­i­ly, oth­er pets, or the pub­lic, it is cru­cial to con­sult a behav­ior­ist. Behaviorists can help assess the sit­u­a­tion and devel­op strate­gies to man­age and mod­i­fy the behav­ior to ensure safety.

Persistent or Worsening Issues

If you have tried basic train­ing tech­niques or oth­er approach­es with­out suc­cess, and the behav­ioral prob­lems per­sist or wors­en, a behav­ior­ist can pro­vide a fresh per­spec­tive and more spe­cial­ized expertise.

Quality of Life

Behavioral prob­lems can neg­a­tive­ly impact your dog’s qual­i­ty of life. Issues like sep­a­ra­tion anx­i­ety, fear, or aggres­sion can cause sig­nif­i­cant dis­tress to your pet. A behav­ior­ist can work to improve your dog’s emo­tion­al well-being.

Customized Solutions

Behaviorists cre­ate cus­tomized behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion plans tai­lored to your dog’s spe­cif­ic needs and cir­cum­stances. These plans are designed to address the root caus­es of the behav­ior prob­lems and pro­vide effec­tive solutions.

Prevent Escalation

Early inter­ven­tion by a behav­ior­ist can pre­vent behav­ioral issues from esca­lat­ing or becom­ing more severe over time. Addressing prob­lems prompt­ly can lead to bet­ter outcomes.

 

Professional Assessment

Behaviorists can con­duct a thor­ough assess­ment of your dog’s behav­ior, iden­ti­fy­ing any under­ly­ing med­ical or psy­cho­log­i­cal fac­tors that may con­tribute to the prob­lem. They can work in con­junc­tion with vet­eri­nar­i­ans when necessary.

Enhancing the Bond

Resolving behav­ioral issues can strength­en the bond between you and your dog. Behaviorists often use pos­i­tive rein­force­ment tech­niques that cre­ate a more pos­i­tive and coop­er­a­tive relationship.

Ongoing Support

Behaviorists pro­vide ongo­ing sup­port and guid­ance through­out the behav­ior mod­i­fi­ca­tion process. They can help you imple­ment train­ing tech­niques effec­tive­ly and make nec­es­sary adjust­ments to the plan.

Peace of Mind

Consulting a behav­ior­ist can pro­vide peace of mind, know­ing that you are tak­ing the appro­pri­ate steps to help your dog and address any behav­ioral issues they may have.

It’s impor­tant to note that while dog train­ers are excel­lent for teach­ing obe­di­ence and basic skills, behav­ior­ists are spe­cial­ized in under­stand­ing and mod­i­fy­ing behav­ior prob­lems. If you are expe­ri­enc­ing behav­ioral issues with your dog that are caus­ing dis­tress, safe­ty con­cerns, or a decreased qual­i­ty of life for your pet, seek­ing the exper­tise of a canine behav­ior­ist is a valu­able step toward resolv­ing these issues and improv­ing your dog’s well-being.
