**Due to the nature and complexity of people related dog aggression, it will be at the sole discretion of LIFE Dog Training to refuse training cases that are deemed to be best suited for a trainer that specializes in such cases. This is in part because aggression cases require specific resources that Life Dog Training may not have access to at this time.
