AGGRESSION SESSION - "FRIGHTENING FIDO"
Aggression is a normal dog behavior! However, as a society aggressive behavior from dogs is unwanted, unacceptable and frowned upon. At A Pawsitive Dog, I view each aggressive dog as an individual case as well as with delight and eagerness.
Aggressive dogs are fulfilling to work with because the short and long term success is most rewarding. It is amazing to see the once unneutered dog aggressive neopolitan mastiff play in a dog run, a former barking and lunging standard poodle walking the streets of New York without paying attention to dogs, and the spoiled yorkie "terror" no longer attacking anyone who comes near its owner.
Aggressive cases are successful with owner's compliance, hard work and dedication. Owners must adhere to strict guidelines, management, and training.
Below are some types of aggression that A Pawsitive Dog confronts:
- Dog-dog aggression
- People Aggression
- Resource Guarding or Possessive Aggression
- Territorial Aggression
- Predatory Aggression
- Handling Issues
- Leash Aggression - Leash Frustration

MINI OBEDIENCE COURSE
If your dog has been previously trained and is in need of a few sessions of fine tuning then the MINI-COURSE is perfect for you. Decide which commands or behaviors you need to improve upon and we can design a program for you.
SHARE THE TRAINER
Do you and a friend want to share the costs of a trainer? If so, this course is for you! A Pawsitive Dog will train two dogs and their owners at the same time for the price of one lesson. Aggression dogs are not appropriate for these lessons.
All shelter dogs adopted receive discount of $20 per session for each of the first five sessions. Sessions must begin within a month of the adoption date. Proof of adoption is required.
LEAN MEAN EXERCISING MACHINE
If you are too busy to exercise your dog you need A Pawsitive Dog. We will run or bike your dog for 30 minutes. This service is offered to Inwood and Washington Heights residents between March and November.
Requirement: Your dog must be able to play non-stop 20-25 minutes and receive clearance from its vet to run to participate in this program
All discounted class fees are NON-REFUNDABLE. Private lessons that are cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will be charged 50% of the rate unless agreed upon by the trainer. No-shows for private lessons will be charged the full amount. Cancelling with less than 3 hours is considered a no-show.
After the first five sessions, the rate for shelter dogs increases to the rate for private sessions.
