Hello, We moved here from Atlanta and had just started working with a wonderful behaviorist for our adopted poodle. Unfortunately, she is still very fearful aggressive and we really need to work with her more and with someone who understands this type of situation, esp. because we have a baby. Can anyone recommend a dog behaviorist here? We're working with a dog trainer right now, and granted we've only had 2 sessions with her, but I'm not seeing any results so I'm thinking a behaviorist would be better. Any advice? Thanks!

So funny to see this today! We just met with the people from "How to Speak Dog." They are coming to our home Thursday to help us with several issues. The dogs they had at their facility were amazing, I am sold that they can accomplish anything! The office we went to was in Madison, I'll try to get the number later for you.

You know, I actually know someone who met with a dog specialist to help her dog's behavior, and she had a positive experience. I will try to remember to get a name when I next speak with her.

Default We Have the Same Issue!

What a coincidence, we're moving to Huntsville next week and we have the exact same problem with our dog. We have a female black Lab and she is a sweetheart, but is very fearful and growl's at people in certain situations. She has also started growling at our toddler lately when she touches her or tries to pet her. It's making me really nervous and I can't ever leave them alone together. She's never tried to bite anyone, but I'm afraid of what she might do in the future.

This information will be very helpful for us too, as we were planning to seek out a behaviorist after our move.

Thanks!
Jessica

The How to Talk Dog program is being offered in the Huntsville area. They are working out of Whitworth Animal Clinic and the number is 651-1106 or 682-2053. They come to your home to do the training. They also have a website at How to Talk Dog - Huntsville. I am starting with them Thursday, will let you know how it goes!

We had the folks from How to Talk Dog come over - they are SUPER! Very knowledgable, patient and sincere. We love them and so do our dogs. The changes in 2 weeks are unbelievable.
