My husband and I had an aggressive German Shepard that we didn’t know what to do with. Rod worked with us to train Beau, and helped us
socialize him with other dogs. He ended up a model citizen. Rod’s expertise was invaluable. We recommend him wholeheartedly.

What to Expect During a Dog Behavior Consultation

Our consultations begin with a detailed history of your dog’s behavior problems.  The more we know about your dog’s history and the behavior problem, the more effectively we can address it. We may also observe your dog’s behavior and the interaction of your dog with family members. We will then develop a behavior modification program and help you set realistic and achievable goals.


Why You Should Call Your DogSmith Certified Dog Behavior Consultant


As soon as you notice any behavior problems with your dog call your local DogSmith. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Identifying the causes of a behavior problem early can make the difference between a happy, enjoyable relationship with your dog and a stressful, on-going battle with your canine companion.

Thank You DogSmith!

I found Louise to be friendly, professional, and extremely knowledgeable. Our session with my dog, Minnie, was fun and informative and I have learned so much. Louise checks in to see how we are doing, and I feel I have control again. I would highly recommend Louise for all your canine behavioural / training issues.
