Welcome From Brian

Hello and welcome to the Home Page of our Website.

My name is Brian P. Manning and I am the Founder, Owner and Lead Behavior Consultant for my company, Canine Behavioral Services Inc.  I have been working with dogs, in many different capacities, for over 25 years.  In recent years, the Pet Products and Services Industry has literally exploded with new products and services as well as trainers and training "methods".  The number of new dog trainers, both professionally certified and self-titled, has grown significantly in the last few years.  As a result, owners have countless choices when it comes to who they hire as well as the type, or method, of training they enlist.  For some experienced owners, this variety can be beneficial.  However, for most dog owners, the overabundance of choices makes finding the “right” trainer and methodology, for themselves and their beloved dog, quite difficult and downright confusing.

Our Professional Behavior Modification and Training Programs utilize a Cynopraxic approach. 

  • Cynopraxis: "Cynopraxic Training proceeds on the assumption that dogs and people possess a shared capacity to establish relations based on fair exchange.  Such training promotes cognitive, emotional and behavioral changes conducive to social competence, cooperation and play. Cynopraxic training objectives are governed by two essential social and life experience criteria: (1) enhance the human dog relationship and (2) impove the dog's quality of life."  

    -  Steven R. Lindsay, Handbook of Applied Dog Behavior and Training

By taking a scientifically sound approach to dog training, strictly adhering to the LIMA Principle & Human Hierarchy, while prioritizing the dogs needs and motivating factors, we can naturally lead and guide the dog into proper acceptable behaviors without the need for the harsh corrections or intimidation used by some trainers to achieve quick results.  The problem is, those "quick" results almost never last.  In many cases, not able to be solved or helped by humans alone, we utilize a highly specialized and proprietary Pack Dynamic Training process.  This incredibly successful process is often times the ONLY way that certain negatively developed  behaviors can be improved.  

Whether you are interested in establishing a very rewarding Leader-Follower Bond, teaching your dog to walk well on a Loose-Leash, or have a dog with severe behavioral issues, we here at Canine Behavioral Services Inc. have the professional ability and experience to help your dog vastly improve his or her behavior and set the tone for a future of peace, harmony and behavioral balance! 

We know that finding the right trainer for you can be a difficult decision and we truly appreciate and thank you for your time and consideration. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns.
