Hi, I'm Judy Moore
welcome to canine behavior counseling

Due to an extensive back log of clients. I am putting a pause on taking new clients at this time. 

Please check back soon.

I am still dedicated to all my current clients, plus working on several upcoming Presentations, Podcasts,

Webinars and my new book, Let the Dogs’ Talk, a 7 step process of introducing

dogs which will help to prevent reactivity in dogs.

As President of Canine Behavior Counseling I am dedicated to helping dog owners better understand their dogs’ responses to prevent dog bites. Dogs that become overly aroused, fear aggressive, or guard resources are those that I can help using a Positive Approach.

My training programs encompass two comprehensive online training classes, as well as personalized one-to-one counseling.

I seek to achieve a more purposeful state of mind in the dogs I see, which allows for a healthy relationship between the dog and its owner. It is important for dog owners to understand their dogs’ emotional sensitivities as well as other character traits, as behaviors are a response to how the dog feels. By providing the proper information, management techniques and training skills, the relationship between dog and owner can often improve quickly.

Thank you for visiting my dog training site. If you are interested in learning how to modify your dog’s behavior or better understand why your dog’s behavior has changed, schedule here!

Best regards,
Judy Rapp Moore, BS, CDBC, CCA, CPDT-KA
Certified Dog Behavior Consultant (IAABC)
Certified Temperament Assessor (CARAT)

I am currently not taking new clients / Consultations

I will be focusing on current clients and preparing for several upcoming podcasts, webinars and training work-shops. Plus, I am writing a book on Dog behavior! Judy specializes in helping you understand your dog’s temperament traits, which will be observed in his body language. This will help explain, for example, why your dog responds with confident activation or fearful inhibition and which of these responses can be counter conditioned.

Bite Risk Assessment

This Assessment is performed in Judy’s office and is for dogs who have bitten humans or dogs, resulting in two or more punctures.

CARAT Temperament Assessment

As a Certified CARAT Temperament Assessor and a Certified Dog Behavior Consultant, I can identify temperament traits that may lead to separation anxiety, reactivity, and aggression in pups as early as 8 weeks of age. My assessment will guide your socialization priorities and help you prevent unwanted behaviors from developing.

Judy’s Blog

Having owned three dogs with bite histories, Judy's blog entries have a strong focus on training the territorial dog, dogs that bite humans, dog to dog relationships and resource guarding.
