What is the free dog behavior clinic offered by Highland Canine Training?

Many of our local clients are familiar with Highland Canine Training’s free behavior clinic that we host from time to time at our facility in Harmony, North Carolina. This dog behavior clinic was originally formed to help our students who attend our School for Dog Trainers learn how to diagnose dog behaviors with dogs and clients they have never met.  When we started this program in 2012, little did we know what type of impact this event would have on the families and their pets in our community. The clinic gives families a chance to bring their dog to us and have their behavior questions answered. Is your dog growling at guests? Does it seem impossible to potty train your dog? Are two of your dogs fighting without a known reason? The behavior clinic can offer answers and suggestions to help with problems such as these.

How does the free dog behavior clinic work?

After a date is set, we invite the community to call or email us to set up an appointment to get their dog(s) evaluated.  Some clients bring their entire family so our students and trainers can hear all sides of the story and understand the dynamics of their home.  Clients sit down in front of our panel of current students and tell us stories about the behaviors they are struggling with. Our students learn how to ask the right questions which is huge when becoming a great, well rounded dog trainer.  Our staff of professional dog trainers are there to guide the students and make sure they are diagnosing and giving the best advice possible for each situation. Clients can spend anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour getting free advice for their four-legged family members.

How does the behavior clinic benefit the students in our School for Dog Trainers?

When it comes to studying dog training, there is nothing better than real life experience. Our students have the opportunity to answer the questions of real dog owners and evaluate real dogs with behavior problems.  With the guidance of our professional dog trainers, our students learn to ask questions, analyze the behavior, study the dog’s body language, and offer information and solutions to the owners who are struggling with their furbabies.
