You & your dog’s needs are both unique - as are your concerns!

Let us customize a program that fits easily into your busy life.

  • We’ll help you determine the cause of your dog’s behavioral problems and find a solution that incorporates your experience, time, and financial allowance.

  • Choose our Private Coaching service if you wish to train your dog yourself with our help & guidance.

  • Too busy to fit in training? - Or perhaps you simply prefer a Professional to do the heavy lifting for you? Day Training will ultimately give you faster results . All you have to do is maintain the new behaviors your dog has learned.

  • Often, a combination of the two services is recommended, in order to achieve your goals within a certain timeframe or budget, depending on your individual needs.

  • Both services start with an Initial Consult (Behavior Consultation), which is necessary to conduct a behavior assessment and examine all factors that contribute to the problems you are facing.

Kat Stafford & Arya, West Ashley

We asked Vivi to help us with our doberman Arya. We got her at 5 month old with number of issues that prevented us from enjoying simple walk or relaxing time with her. A lot of tries and fails with this awesome girl. And then we met Vivi. She gave us tools and a lot of work to do, but results are so worth it. Arya and I developed trusting relationship and time together became a lot of fun. There is still work to do, practice, practice, practice... But we both came a long way in just few sessions. Clicker training was the best thing that could possibly happen to us... Thank You Vivi!!!

dog-behaviorist-charleston-sc

Behavior package (Behavior Modification)

  • Is your dog’s behavior causing you stress or concern?

  • Perhaps she lunges at other dogs/people?

  • Is fearful of loud noises, like thunder, fireworks, engines?

  • Is shy or fearful of family members or strangers?

  • Showing signs of fear-related aggression?

  • Suffering from Separation Anxiety, or other related anxiety?

You need a well-educated and experienced professional who understands how behavior works and how to modify it. We will carefully examine all factors in order to determine what is going on from your dog’s perspective. Whenever your dog is reacting to things in a fearful or aggressive manner, it means he is reacting through his emotions and he ‘cannot just stop it’. He has learned that this coping mechanism works. Changing his emotions about a scary stimulus means working systematically within his comfort zone through desensitization and counterconditioning techniques. This process takes time, dedication, commitment & compassion. We often work in conjunction with veterinarians, behavior consultants, and/or veterinary behaviorists to examine all possible causes and the most effective treatment for your dog’s issues.

  • We recommend you email or call us prior to booking a Consult to determine what treatment may be necessary for your individual case
