Animal Assisted   Behavior Modification

Our 50-minute long private behavioral modification sessions utilize Animal Assisted Therapy to increase desired behaviors, and decrease unwanted behaviors.  These sessions are jointly led by a staff member and certified therapy dog team, to make learning new behaviors or working on difficult ones a more enjoyable and successful experience.

Behavior modification can address a variety of different challenges such as a fear of dogs, inhibition control, inability to stay on task, emotional awareness/control,  planning/organization, interaction with peers, proper response (verbal or non-verbal), and much more. We teach children the skills needed to overcome their daily challenges and lead a more successful life, all in a positive, accepting environment.  

Whether your child has a fear that needs to be addressed, a social skill that needs to be developed, or a behavior that needs to be implemented, call us today to learn more!
