What is “Pack to Basics”?
The key to Pack To Basics is to use the dog's naturally strong social behavior to reduce stress and fear; build confidence and language skills, allowing for many common behavior problems to slip away. This is an approach like none other!
Pack to Basics is a comprehensive approach to canine socialization, specifically gear towards dogs with known socialization issues. It includes everything from the initial evaluation to pre-training dogs before they can enter the social arena and preparing the questionable dogs to safely enter the socialization classes.
Pack to basics is an advanced socialization process that focuses on the dogs that are typically excluded from doggie day-cares and other socialization venues. Because of this fact, Pack to Basics offers us an opportunity to help dogs that otherwise might not be able to ever run with other dogs.
Our Pack to Basics classes are revolutionary in their approach and in their results. By allowing dogs with difficulties getting along with other dogs to interact with the right kinds of dogs, they learn not merely to control their aggressive behavior, but to actually enjoy getting along with other dogs.

The next video shows one of our works in progress. Ringo is a from South Texas Lab Rescue and was facing an uncertain future because of his aggressive behavior towards other dogs. We have done no training with Ringo besides Pack to Basics socialization classes, what you see below is the result of less than two weeks of work and only a handful of sessions.
