Behave! Dog Training and Behavior Modification

Our Services

We specialize in aggression, leash pulling, separation anxiety, hyperactivity, destructive behavior, and fearful tendencies.  We also offer beginner to advanced obedience. Behave! is here to help transform a dog that is driving you crazy into a dog the entire family can enjoy.

Why Choose Behave!

Behave was opened to help make dog training doable and accessible for the average family. Because of the lack of behavior specific training, many dogs are bounced from family to family, and often euthanized. We hope to put a dent in this problem by offering real solutions to owners who love their dogs as much as we love ours.

Behave! Has The Best Clients, Let’s See
What They Have To Say?

Alexandra did a wonderful job educating us on how to understand our dogs. That education is critical when doing behavioral training so that you as an owner are properly equipped to handle your dog. I can’t say enough good things about Alex as she is very patient, understanding and knowledgable. I think she trained us more than she did the dogs which is really the most important part. She teaches you so you can teach your dog. Alex has a great way of explaining to you and showing you what she’s talking about that just makes sense! I highly recommend Alex and Behave! for you and your dog. It’s not training, it’s education!!

I just started, and man I was beyond shocked!!! Alex is more than amazing!!! She’s very professional, friendly, outgoing, and definitely knows her stuff! I cant wait for the rest of my sessions!! 20 mins in and my dog already had a good happy face going on. I was shocked. (my dog is very fearful of strangers) my little guy even gave her kisses and allowed her to walk him!!!

I recommend results with behave to ANYONE!!
Alex is the go to trainer!!!

Rachel G., Review from Facebook Member
I would definitely recommend Alex of Behave to anyone needing behavioral help with their dogs! My dog had an issue with fear-based aggression towards both people and other dogs. Working with Alex even after 2-3 sessions there was noticeable improvement, and both myself and my dog learned something new from Alex each time she visited. In fact I learned so much that when my ex split and took our dog, I was able to work with my new boy I adopted who had similar (but not as severe) issues as my girl dog had had.

This was almost a year ago and throughout the year I received the occasional note from her saying she hoped Lucy & I were doing well; not only is Alex professional and knowledgeable, she genuinely cares about both her human and four-legged clients!

Meet our Mascots Dante and Arya!

Dante was rescued in October of 2011 from a breed specific rescue in the Detroit area.  Dante was found as a stray, and was an obvious abuse case.

After intensive behavior training and work to get Dante physically healthy again, he learned to love other dogs, people, and worked for years with Alex on cases to rehabilitate other dogs.  Dante is now an older boy and living the life of luxury in retirement.  He approves of his pension of raw dog food and enjoying sunny spots and cat naps.

Arya was rescued from a high kill shelter in Los Angeles in 2014.  She was found as a stray but looked as though she had been used as a breeder and neglected.  She was emaciated, covered in fleas and ticks, and was so sick she had to be carried outside for days.

Arya’s temperament has shined from day one, but her separation anxiety, stubborn streak, and high prey drive made things a challenge.  After some work, she passed her CGC with flying colors, and now helps Alex as the current canine behaviorist and model citizen.
