In this solution, we will spend as much time as it takes with you and your dog, coaching you on effective handling techniques. We start with an analysis of the problem(s), explain the behavioral basis for the dog’s behavior, and describe the solution(s). Next, we’ll demonstrate how to do your role in the rehabilitation process, and then hand the leash to you. In this stage, you will be coached on your body language, command and praise tones, and correction levels that are appropriate to your dog, and the timing of your praise. The session is only over when you tell us that you completely understand what to do, and have demonstrated to us that you are doing the training correctly. Next, we’ll help you construct a training schedule, talk about duration of each event, and plan to expand the sphere in which your dog will learn the new behavior(s). Finally, we will leave a copy of Barry’s book for you; BALANCED TRAINING, OBEDIENCE FOR DOGS AND THEIR OWNERS, and provide you with our telephone and email contacts. This will give you an additional ninety minutes of verbal coaching should you need it.                   COSTS A. $495 when aggression is involved B. $395 for multiple behaviour solutions. C. $295 for single behaviours, eg pulling on walks or jumping or separation anxiety.   All taxes are included.
Typical Testimonial: Hi Barry, To say I was skeptical that these dogs could be ‘fixed’ in just an hour consult session is an understatement. At first when I saw how the dogs responded to you and I thought maybe you had some sort of magical dog whisperer type vibe that would wear off once you left. Then I thought, we’ll give this a day or two and the dogs will stop responding to the pinch collars and I’ll be back at square one. I am pleased to report that after a month of walking almost every single day, it’s not gotten worse but has improved each and every time. Thanks so much! Megan

WHY YOU’D WANT TO GET HELP FROM BARRY

He has worked with dogs for 40 years, but time spent on the job is not always the most important criterion. He’s actually accomplished things with his own dogs and with those who train with him.

Founding member of the German Shepherd Schutzhund Club of Canada and President for 3 terms since 1979. Competitor in CKC Obedience trials and in the sport of Schutzhund, now called IPO. Achieved multiple obedience and Schutzhund titles on many of his dogs, and helped many others do the same. Represented Canada in international competition in Schutzhund. National Teaching Helper. This means that he can coach people who will be doing the protection work in IPO trials…you know, “The Bad Guys” who are going to be bitten. Multiple times used as an expert witness on dog matters in Saskatchewan Queen’s Bench Court and in local, lesser court cases. Rehabilitated hundreds of badly behaved dogs, each in one short session, by training their owners to manage and handle them correctly. Humans are not born knowing how to deal with dogs, though many incorrectly believe they are! He is the president of his local training club, Central Plains Schutzhund Club, and helps his members with Tracking, Obedience and Protection exercises leading to titles. He co-owns Buena Vista Kennels and Buena Vista Training Systems - a highly successful obedience training school in Saskatoon. Students who attend do extremely well in competition. Batchelor of Education UBC, Professional ‘A’ Certificate - Saskatchewan Certification in Applied Positive Psychology   Barry cares deeply about the welfare of dogs and wants people to be happy with their canines living a life that benefits and fulfills both species.
