ABCA consists of experienced behaviorists and trainers who are dedicated to serving a clientele who find the need to better understand educate and implement workable strategies to create good companions (home domestic animals), service (SAR, Police canine, therapy, etc), commercial (business, stage, and screen), or competitive working animals (AKC, Agility, Schutzhund, French Ring Sport, etc).
Our resolve at ABCA is to provide owners and/or handler/trainers with a way in which they can efficiently, as well as humanely and expediently train their animals to a point of excellence. To this end, your animals will be taught to perform in an appropriate and acceptably prescribed manner; this may include anything from the most elemental needs for corrective behaviors for problems such as growling, over protectiveness and biting.
An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, and it is for this reason that we encourage early intervention in the training and educating process (no age is too young!). This will not only help prevent problems but this will also ensure the development of a more healthful productive relationship with you companion - it will allow you to achieve positive results more quickly. Your animal will too then be able to start living up to your goals and expectations sooner.
Sound principles based on animal behavior and ethology along with our on-going commitment and love for animals assures you of the most professionally beneficial outcomes for both you and your animal; canine, feline, equine, or other.
