Behavior Modification Training – Dog Obedience Training

For aggressive dogs we offer a Behavior Modification Course in Asheville and beyond!


Behavior modification means that specific problem behaviors that your dog exhibits in specific situations or all the time are changed with a systematic approach.

Has your dog been displaying undesirable or aggressive behaviors? Have they been excessively licking, acting aggressively, or being destructive? Forget about Googling “dog obedience training near me“…  Call Sally Said So today !! If you live in Asheville and beyond, you and your pet can benefit greatly from our dog obedience training through our popular behavior modification course.

Signs that your dog could be a perfect candidate for dog obedience training are:

  • Resource guarding
  • Food aggression
  • Dog aggression
  • Sibling aggression
  • Leash reactivity
  • Fearfulness
  • Anxiety
  • Excessive barking
  • Destructive behavior
  • Territorial behavior
  • Male aggression
  • and MORE.

Most people believe that bad behavior requires dog training – but that’s not the case! Sally Said So will gather details related to the dog`s environment and daily schedule.  Simply managing the dog’s environment and daily activities is the best way to break bad behavior. Don’t underestimate the need for dogs to be active on a regular basis. Without enough exercise, they could be acting out or feel `pent up.` It’s less likely that a dog will act up if they have expended most of their energy through exercise.

Through this type of dog training, as the owner, your dog will learn valuable cues such as sit, down, stay, wait, come, look, touch, leave-it, and go to your mat. They will also learn how to play cooperatively with other dogs. To prevent and change unwelcomed dog behaviors, you – the owner, will learn to use positive reinforcement with your dog.

Dog obedience training is heavily based on building a positive relationship between dogs and their owners. This relationship is crucial for the dog to succeed in behavior modification training. Sally Said So Dog Training can change any unwanted behaviors that your dog is demonstrating. Our personalized in-home behavior modification course allows us to train your pet in the comfort and familiarity of your own home. If you require flexibility due to a busy schedule, or if your dog requires individual attention, this dog training option is a perfect choice.

Regardless of your dog’s age or breed, change is possible! Get your dog trained in Asheville and beyond with Sally Said So for the best results! With so many options available, choose what’s best for you and your dog!
