12-4 BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION PROGRAM
This on-leash program is intended to assist dogs and their owners with effective dog/owner
communication, socialization, and behavior modification. The behavior modification covered may
include the areas of object socialization, people socialization, and confidence building.
In order for this training program to be successful, it is imperative for owners to work at home to
change patterns and behaviors as instructed by our trainers. Dog owners will receive instruction and
counseling on how their behavior influences the behavior of their dog. Your willingness to incorporate
behavior modification and obedience commands into everyday life is crucial for success.
This on leash program is designed to establish and give you on leash control. Upon completion of
this program your dog will be able to walk on a leash, sit, and lay down patiently at your left side.
During this program your dog will stay in residence at Full Circle K-9 for at least twelve full days.
During this time our staff of certified trainers will teach your dog the following on-leash commands:
HEEL with Automatic-Sit, SIT at your side, DOWN at your side, and STAY. Your dog will also
participate in behavior modification, socialization therapy, and confidence building.
During your private follow-up lessons, you will be taught proper leash handling techniques and
correct use of each command. Your follow-up lessons will include instruction at Full Circle K-9 indoor
and outdoor training areas. During these lessons there will be an emphasis on handling unwanted
behaviors. You and your dog will also receive socialization therapy and/or confidence building
assistance. All four of the included private follow-up lessons must be completed within 30 days after
the final date of residency training unless approval is received from your trainer.
With this program your dog will receive a properly sized training collar and a leather leash.
