What we doGet started

Meeting your dog’s


Our relationship with our dogs is wonderful and complicated. Our dogs are fabulously unique, as are our individual relationships with them. We believe that you both deserve the best: a systematic, personalized approach to behavior change and credentialed professionals who deliver competent collaborative care.

Why Canine Behavior Science?


You are always welcome to participate or watch us train your dog, either in person or via webcam.


While you will have an assigned lead trainer, the entire team works together to ensure you and your dog are successful.  


We never purposefully put your dog into situations where they will be fearful, stressed, anxious or aggressive.


Behavior Specialty

Our focus is on dogs with behavior challenges such as fear, anxiety, aggression, general annoyance and nuisance behaviors.  This requires a different skill set and education than a manners or obedience trainer.

Customized Approach

One size does not fit all with dog behavior challenges.  The environment, your lifestyle, the dog’s learning history and genetics all play a factor in determining the best training plan.  

Learning Organization

Beyond our shared passion for animals, the team also shares a strong passion for education.  Ongoing, continuing academic and industry education is a core value, as well as industry certifications.

“Passionate and gifted behavior consultants.  The team’s obvious love for animals comes through in the quality of their work.”

Joleen Z. and Rocky

“CBS is awesome!  We rescued a boxer that had a history of male aggression issues and wasn’t socialized with other dogs.  They are so dedicated to helping achieve successful results.  We learned tons of valuable skills and have CBS to thank for showing us the way.”

Martha F. and Libby

“Their behaviorist approach and many years of experience really helped me understand what to anticipate better and therefore respond in a more helpful way.  They are the real deal.”

We Understand Dogs

Dogs aren’t born understanding that peeing in the house is a no-no or that eating food off the counter is forbidden.  It is up to us to teach them how to function successfully in our world.

We Will Understand Your Needs

We focus on meeting your goals.  Whether you want to hike the trails together or safely have friends to your house, we’ll develop a customized plan to meet your needs.

We Take a Customized Approach

We don’t apply “off-the-shelf” protocols that may or may not work.  We carefully construct behavior plans based on the behavior science, your specific needs, the individual dog and the actual environment in which you live.

We Focus on Progress

We evaluate whether the plan we develop is working by continually assessing implementation.  We strive to improve results while integrating the training and behavior modification into your day-to-day life.
