F. House soiling /marking 

G. Crate training

H. Digging

Severe Behaviors starting at $180 and up

A. Aggression Control: Although most aggression are fear based.  It can sometime be predatorial or learned.  Unlike jumping or pulling on the leash, aggression is more phycological than just the behavior itself.  When it comes to the aggression we must deal with the root that cause the aggression and train the dog from inside out rather than outside in.  Meaning we need to change the perception how the dog sees or feels the stimuli in order to change his emotion in order to change his behavior.

B. Reactivity: With city by law that required all dogs needed to be on leash at public areas.  More and more dog owners start to encounter the reactive behavior from their dog when seeing another dog.  The problem is most of the owners or even the trainers will label this behavior as aggression.  The truth about reactivity is not always aggression.  Sometimes  it's just your dog showing his frustration or fear when he sees the other dog.  And the worst thing is the owner react on his dog's reactive behaviors either through correction or tighten the leash.  At CaptainK9 we want to teach your dog that there is always a better behavior for you to get what you want or avoid what you fear by being proactive rather than reactive. 

C. Resource guarding: food/toys/bone

D. Separation anxiety

E. Excessive barking
