How Leash and Learn Works with Aggression and Behavior Modification

Aggression and behavior modification training is designed to meet the individual needs of your dog and family. Whatever the problem, Leash and Learn employs positive reinforcement training techniques to develop a customized training plan and to help you address the behavior.


  • Rachel comes to your home for your initial consultation

  • Rachel take a detailed history, and observe your dog's behavior

  • Together we determine realistic goals and create a plan

  • We begin training exercises

  • Safety and management are implemented

  • When necessary, Rachel will work in conjunction with your Veterinarian or Veterinary Behaviorist to ensure the greatest success for your dog

  • Follow up lessons are available in packages of 4 or 8. Rachel will tell you which option fits you best. It is recommended that lessons are spaced about 2 weeks apart for maximum success

Client Love - Teddy

Before working with Leash and Learn every walk was frustrating and stressful for both Teddy and myself, full of lots of stops and starts. Now we both love going for walks and Teddy is raring to go! I feel so much more in tune with her and confident, it’s made me feel like a better dog mom. Thank you!

Training Packages & Prices

Step One - Initial Evaluation

Your initial evaluation lays the groundwork for all of your dog's training and any follow-up packages. We sit down together in your home, assess your dog's current behavior, set goals, and begin with the most pertinent training exercises. 

3-5 days after your initial evaluation, you receive a customized training plan and an overview of the themes discussed during your appointment. 

Step Two - Training Packages

To reach your goals, most training will require a package of follow-up lessons. 

Leash and Learn understands that both time and money are valuable. That’s why we have developed two types of training programs. Our “basics” programs saves you money. Our “jumpstart” programs save you time.
