ICU is for dogs that need help to reduce or eliminate unruly behavior, nervousness, anxiety, reactivity, separation anxiety, resource guarding behaviors, excessive barking or whining etc.  The goal is to teach your dog to voluntarily "let go" of the stress related to the negative emotions  and learn to offer positive and desirable behaviors instead.  We help dogs learn to manage their emotions and make better choices.
