Aggressive Dog Training

Aggressive dog behavior will not go away on its own. The dog will not grow out of it. Left untreated, both the frequency and the intensity of the problems will increase. Aggressive dog training is needed to decrease the frequency and intensity of the problem behaviors.

Rest assured, dog aggression is a common dog behavior challenge. We can help! That being said, this is a serious issue that needs addressing as soon as possible –

The longer you wait, and the more it happens, the more effort it takes to change the behavior.

When a dog is in the reactive state of mind, they can easily redirect and bite dog owners nearby.

Don’t lose your home because your dog bit the wrong dog or bit a person trying to break up the fight.

Group dog training classes can be great, but too often the results stay behind in the classroom. Instead, let’s do the training where you need your dog to behave his best—wherever that may be.

Let's get started eliminating your dog's aggressive behaviors!

Mariah is a great balance of encouraging and humorous which works well when you have THREE dachshunds that all have different needs. She works well with my teenager with reactivity issues, my old-souled fearful girl that is scared of her own shadow and my new puppy teaching her general manners and obedience. I have tried other trainers. Mariah definitely hits the mark with her positive reinforcement and patience while training the humans and the dogs in the house. -Michelle G.

Mariah is as much people trainer as she is a dog trainer. We have used her in-home training services for the foundation skills and commands as well as her group classes for both of rescue dogs. One of the benefits of the latter for us is the ability for one of our dogs – who has a hard time meeting new dogs on the leash – to socialize with other dogs in a structured environment.

On top of all the training, she always does a great job with follow-up and additional educational material. I wish training with Mariah was mandatory for all new dog owners. -Jack T.

Fantastic positive reinforcement techniques proved to be incredibly effective for my high-energy yet shy chihuahua-mix who had a fear of others’ hands (a problem that sometimes led her to snap at other people!). I highly recommend the Mariah Hinds to anyone who is seeking behavioral modification for their pup(s). Thank you, Mariah! – Crystal P.

Teddy, a rescued Australian Shepherd mix, has several fear issues and would respond aggressively, but Mariah was terrific at introducing him to new situations slowly and teaching me how to look for his cues and ease his anxieties. We’re now enjoying walks together – even in crowded areas with numerous triggers. -Melanie M.

After becoming aggressive towards several of my friends, I was desperate to find someone to help Barney and I. Since Barney’s very first training session with Mariah, I have seen great changes in him. His confidence has increased, he is able to calm down easier, he is less anxious, and he is overall a happier and friendlier dog. -Marissa Z.

His over all anxiety is down! Thank you so much for taking the time to train with me and mister Harvey! We appreciate you and will recommend you to anyone who is having behavior problems! -Mary H.
