How to Prepare for Your Behavior Evaluation

  1. Try to observe what happens before, during, and after your dog has a meltdown. What’s happening in their environment? What specific body language is your dog exhibiting? What happened earlier in the day? How long does it take your dog to be calm after a stressful event?

  2. If possible, try to record a video of the your dog’s undesirable behavior.

  3. Identify any medical concerns that may be influencing your dog’s behavior.

  4. Determine when you’ll be available for training sessions, and prepare to adjust your schedule. We will meet every week to train together, and you’ll need to train regularly on your own to see progress.

  5. Instead of thinking about all the things you want your dog to stop doing, think about what you’d like your dog to do instead and we’ll explore what success looks like for both of you!
