Behavior Modification

Behavior Modification

Are you wanting a better relationship with your pup? Many dogs suffer from anxiety, fear, and dominance which can lead to aggressive behavior. Our programs address problem behaviors like:

  • Jumping
  • Nipping
  • Leash pulling
  • Waiting for permission to go through doors
  • Walking on leash

We offer several different packages based on our clients needs. In order to find out what is best for your dog, we like to set up a time to meet in person with you and your dog. This will give us an opportunity to suggest a training program that’ll fit you and your dog’s needs.

The first step is to perform an Assessment & Evaluation where we will visit you and your dog in your home.

About Mr. Pit Frisco

I am a dog behaviorist, which means that I rehabilitate dogs, and I train people. It’s an important distinction, and one that can be hard for people to understand. Most of my time will be spent on a one on one with you and your pooch.

What dog training does not do is solve behavioral issues. I’m sure many of you reading this have had the experience of calling your dog to come to you — something you’ve trained them to do — but they ignore you because they see a squirrel, rabbit, another animal or something else that steals their attention. In these cases, the training goes right out the window.

In order to rehabilitate a dog, you need to figure out what it is in the dog’s environment that is causing the misbehavior. Are they bored? Frustrated? Overexcited? Fearful? If you don’t deal with those issues, you can have a well-trained dog that will sit on command and still be completely bored or frustrated.

The biggest factor in a dog’s environment that affects its behavior is the energy of the people around it. Our dogs are our mirrors. They reflect back the energy we give them, and if we are not calm and assertive they cannot be calm and submissive. This is where the “behaviorist” part of what I do comes into play. If you want a well-behaved dog, you need to have a happy and fulfilled dog through exercise, discipline, and affection.

Don’t just read the fees above. Instead, consider the cost of NOT doing it!

  • 5 star review  Mr. Pit is awesome!! He is definitely passionate about what he does and it reflects in his work. We have two 80+lbs. dogs and he has been great with both of them. He has given us great advice on training and walking them. One of our girls is a bit jealous of the other one at times and he has given us great tips. The dogs can definitely feel his good energy and they listen to everything he says! He is a dog whisperer 🙂 We are so lucky that we found him so that our girls can stay home when we go out of town as well. He comes over feeds them, walks them and even gets our mail, etc. We also love all of the cute pics he takes of them and he always sends videos of him walking them. We are so lucky we found Rafael, he is great to work with!

    5 star review  Mr. Pit is Godsend. He was referred to me by a good friend, when my puppy started getting rebellious and aggressive with my eldest dog. I was so stressed out about what my pup was becoming and what I could do. He came over the very next day and within 3 minutes of entering my home, he had full control of the pup without laying a hand on her. He gave me some wonderful advice and calmed my nerves quickly. He also told me about his day camp to help with the energy of my 2 youngest. Today was their first day of camp. Not only did he come get them, he sent a video while they were there and brought them home SO happy, not to mention, nice and tired. I am grateful to have found him. I would suggest him to anyone that loves their dogs.

  • 5 star review  We have two 125+ pound dogs and although they have wonderful temperaments, they can be quite a handful. There is no one else in town (not even family) that I trust them with more. For dog walking, day camp, advice on everyday training - Mr. Pit Frisco is our one and only go-to guy.

    5 star review  Mr. Pit is awesome...best trainer I have ever worked with! He was able to get my crazy/strong Great Dane to walk on a leash without pulling. I'm excited to see how she does with doggy daycare. =)
