All of the programs offered by Primal Needs Behavioral Solutions have been specially designed to address the underlying causes of a dog’s misbehavior, not just the symptoms.

Blair saved our pet...She was extremely leash aggressive...terrified of kids...had food aggression and attacked our yorkie...We went up to his guest home to spend the weekend training with our dog...it was extremely important for us to learn how to handle our dog, as well. She was only with Blair for one week when we went up and saw an unreal change!!...Without Blair's help I don't know how much longer we would have been able to keep our pup but I'm so glad and grateful that we found him!

Intensive Weekend Training Program

This is our newest program, and is designed to include you, as the owner, throughout the entire process of training your dog. Over the course of a long, personalized weekend, this program is designed to give you the tools needed to conduct your own board and train within your own household.

In this program, both you and your dog will come to Blair’s guest home in Mount Shasta, CA, for an intensive weekend (Thursday evening through Sunday afternoon) of training. You will be given full lodging for the weekend on-site in Blair’s fully furnished and beautiful guest home, and he will establish a training schedule for both you and your dog for the weekend.

This weekend is comprised of 15 hours of hands-on skill work, and allows Blair to work privately with you and your dog. Working hand in hand with you, Blair will instill in your dog an understanding of his/her place in the relationship between human and dog, and demonstrate how this mindset is crucial to a dog’s emotional health and wellbeing. You will see firsthand that when this state is achieved, your dog will have a sense of calm and balance, and will have a natural orientation towards appropriate behaviors.

Blair will show you how to maintain this state, and will also give you an understanding of how to effectively lead and communicate with your dog. He also utilizes video recordings, a model of training that allows him to observe how you interact with your dog, point out the subtleties to your interaction, and make suggestions on how to be more effective.

He will help you work with your voice, your body language, and your energy to create clear communication with your dog. Your role during this weekend will be hands-on, learning proper correction and redirection techniques, as well as how to walk with your dog both on- and off-leash.

During your time with Blair, you will learn about your dog’s physical, mental, and nutritional needs. You will leave this three-day intensive program with a 30-day plan of action custom-designed by Blair for your dog.

This program includes unlimited access to Blair during the training period, as well as a lifetime commitment to you and your dog after the process.

After completing this program, your dog is also eligible for boarding with Primal Needs in the future.

*Human aggressive dogs are not eligible for this program


Three-Week Board and Train Program

Walking dogs off leash in woods

This program has been designed specifically for dogs with higher levels of aggression, or extreme behavioral challenges. In this program, your dog will be picked up from your home, and transported to Blair’s property in Mount Shasta, CA, for a total of three weeks.

During training, Blair will work with your dog one-on-one, focusing on fundamentally changing your dog’s mindset to one that is calm and balanced, establishing clear leadership and communication through a natural relationship between human and dog, and focusing him/her on clear expectations for appropriate behavior. This is achieved through both on- and off-leash training.

This program also includes three in-home transfer sessions, in which Blair will personally assist you and other members of your household with transitioning your dog back into his/her home environment. Blair will work with each member of the family on setting rules and boundaries, as well as identifying old patterns in the household that might encourage unwanted behaviors. These transfer sessions typically take place at the following times: when your dog is returned to you; 24-72 hours after your dog comes home; and, finally, 3-4 weeks after your dog comes home.

This program includes unlimited access to Blair during the training period, as well as a lifetime commitment to you and your dog after the process.

After completing this program, your dog is also eligible for boarding with Primal Needs in the future.


Combination Program

In this program, your dog will be picked up from your home, and transported to Blair’s property in Mount Shasta for a total of three weeks. During this time, Blair will work with your dog one-on-one, focusing on fundamentally changing your dog’s mindset to one that is calm and balanced, establishing clear leadership and communication through a natural relationship between human and dog, and focusing him/her on clear expectations for appropriate behavior. This is achieved through both on- and off-leash training.

After 1-2 weeks of training, Blair will arrange for you to come up for a weekend and become an active participant in training with your dog. You will be given full lodging for the weekend on-site in Blair’s fully furnished and beautiful guest home, and he will establish a training schedule for both you and your dog for the weekend.

This invaluable weekend experience allows Blair to work privately with you and your dog, demonstrating the new mindset that has been instilled, and observing interactions between you both to ensure that you are able to effectively lead and communicate with him/her.
