FEARFUL DOG SERVICES

Typically clients who choose this package continue with follow-up appointments for as long as their dog needs help. Depending on your dog, training and behavior modification can take anywhere between several months to a year. This process requires patience since fear inhibits learning, and progress timelines vary greatly on a case-by-case basis. It’s important to address fear as soon as possible though, because it usually worsens if gone unresolved.
