Behavior Consultations

This is the right option for you if your dog is showing aggression toward dogs or people, possessiveness of food, toys, and places (resource guarding), separation anxiety, destructiveness and excessive barking.

Step 1.  For behavior issues, a 90 minute in-depth consultation to assess one dog and establish your training goals. A written behavior assessment is available for an extra charge. 

Step 2. We design a training plan that will get the results you want.

Step 3. Depending on the individual case, we either:

  • A. Do the daily training for you, then show you how to maintain the new, improved behavior.
  • B.  Coach you through the training, step by step.

Training sessions are scheduled at your convenience, and the whole family is welcome to take part! 

Price: $250 for 90 minutes ($275 for 2 hours with multiple dogs)
