Now Available- Virtual Consults and Training!!
I hope that after reading through my website and talking to me on the phone, you're ready for me to help you and your pup work at overcoming whatever challenges there are.
To do that, I need information that will allow me to begin formulating a training plan designed specifically to address those challenges. Please click on each of the links below and complete the online forms. I've made them easy to complete and the results will be sent directly to me once you're done. Once I get them and read through the information, I will begin designing the plan that'll make things better.
I generally will have a phone conversation with you to gather information, direct you to the forms I'd like you to complete and then visit with you at your home, place of work or anywhere else behavior occurs that we want to teach or change.
My services are based on the types of training and behavior we're teaching or changing. Consults are utilized to assess, gather information, observe your dog in its natural environment, discuss environment management and supervision, determine safety, discuss realistic training/behavior goals, formulate a training/behavior modification plan. Consults can last from 30 minutes to 2.5 hours. Individual or Package Visits can last from 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.
I classify dogs in four levels as described below. There is a mandatory package of visits required for Levels 3 and 4 due to the serious nature of the behavior and the risk of those behaviors to anyone living in the home, visitors, companion animals, the client dog(s), the general public and other animals.
The duration of any consult or visit is ALWAYS dictated by the ability of your dog to feel safe and comfortable with my presence, to being able to focus and actively participate in the session and is ALWAYS at my discretion.
Additional dog(s): Where training is for 2 or more dogs and the training / behavior modification is the same Level, the fee is an additional 50% for 1 extra dog and 25% for the 2nd or more dogs. If the training / behavior modification for each dog is a different Level, full fees for each Level applies.
I work most days of the week: mornings, afternoons, evenings. Weekend sessions fill more quickly but I make every effort to meld your availability with mine.
