Need a more intensive program for your Rowdy Rover?

Learning stops when fear or reactivity starts. This is why many dogs are not successful in a group class setting or struggle with daily activities like meeting people or dogs on walks. If your dog is one of these, MuttSchool has developed our Rowdy Rover 3-step behavior modification program for dogs with behaviors such as hyperarousal, separation anxiety, fear, aggression, reactivity, or obsessive-compulsive behaviors.

Change for these dogs does not happen overnight or in a few training sessions. These dogs have practiced these behaviors over and over and have been rewarded (even if they have been self-rewarding). It does take a commitment to make a change in the dog’s behavior. It is well worth it. Our results with this program have been life-changing for dogs and their families.

Your dog may qualify for our Rowdy Rover behavior modification program if your dog:

  • Has a bite history of either people or other animals
  • Barks, snarks, or snarls when in close proximity to people or other dogs.
  • Is shy of new people or situations
  • Is easy overstimulated or excited by new situations
  • Is destructive when left alone or harms himself trying to escape from a crate
teaching relaxation is part of behavior modification




Most dogs with challenging behaviors don’t truly know how to relax. They are constantly on edge. Teaching your dog how to relax is the key to our behavior modification program.

Using a variety of our services, MuttSchool will devise an individualized behavior modification training plan for your dog.

Real-life application is part of behavior modification



A behavior modification plan is only good if it works in real life settings. We take the training and apply it to your home, our facility and walks in the park.
