Behavior Modification

DogCentric specializes in aggression cases. Utilizing the principles of behavioral science, we can work towards controlling and hopefully reducing your dog's aggressive tendencies while creating an environment to support the work you will be doing with your dog.

Behavior modification refers to changing the dog's behavior by focusing on changing the dog's emotion about a particular situation and subject. We also utilize obedience skills as part of the modification process.

You will learn about canine body language so you will be able to better read your dog's signals preceding reactive behavior, the right kind of equipment to help manage your dog's aggression, and behaviors to teach your dog how to defer to you instead of react.


We can address the following behaviors:

  • leash lunging
  • aggression towards people and/or other dogs
  • food aggression (resource guarding)
  • possession aggression
  • territorial aggression
  • body-handling issues.


Prices are for clients within 20 miles of Harrison, NY.
