Here to help you
Whether you need basic pet advice or extensive training and behavioral help, we're here for you and your pet. You'll always know beforehand what you're getting, what will happen next, and how much it will cost.
We take a personalized approach based on your individual needs instead of "one-size-fits-all."
Behavior evaluation and INTERVENTIOn for dogs and cats
The first step if you have a serious issue or set of challenges that you haven't been able to resolve on your own or with the help of others. We'll take the time to get your complete history with your pet's health, home environment, and relationships with other members of your family. We'll also discuss specific problem triggers and recommended solutions, both short-term and long-term.
As we strive to protect our clients and staff from Covid19, all sessions will be conducted via phone or video call whenever possible. In-person sessions are subject to a $50 travel and risk fee and will be held outdoors whenever possible.
We offer the following services:
Our Standard Consultation Package ($250) begins with an extensive behavioral evaluation. This typically 60- to 75-minute process can be done by phone or video call, or at your home (for a $50 travel and risk fee). Within a few days of the evaluation, we provide you with a detailed written report including personalized training recommendations and resources. You also receive three months of follow-up phone and email support to get answers to questions and help to address any issues that arise. For pets with less severe behavior issues, these services may be sufficient to meet their needs.
For pets with more severe behavior issues, in-person training may be required. With our evaluation in hand (or a recent training plan from another approved behaviorist), we provide Hourly Training and Behavior Modification Sessions ($100 plus $50 travel and risk fee). One to two sessions are typical to get you and your pet where you need to go.
As appropriate, we also offer innovative speciality services such as Drop-Off Day Training, Regular Walk-Trains, and Sit-Trains on a limited basis (please inquire about pricing).
