Now we get to know each other even better. Here is where we meet in person or online and start building our rapport. I'll collect the history of your dog, the behaviors or training you would like to address, suggest possible management, and discuss moving forward.
Due to COVID all initial consults will take place online - this is where we connect and begin your and your dog's journey. We will discuss your dog's history, their behavior, and address specific questions you may have.
We will build training and behavior goals, discuss enrichment, possible management and decide what training package works best for you, Day Training or Coaching.
This session typically lasts between 60-90 minutes.
After the session, you'll receive a summary of our consult, homework, and additional resources, such as training videos, handouts, and recommended reading.
In this hectic world isn't it nice to have someone come in and do the heavy lifting? That's where Day Training comes in! If you pick day training - you can put the stress aside, I come in and do the work, and then transfer the training to you.
Day Training happens while you are living your life and perhaps your pup is home alone anyway and needs some stimulation. How many days a week does day training happen? It depends on the behavior we are working on and will be discussed and determined in our initial consult.
This program also requires in-person transfer sessions where I teach you how to maintain the behaviors your pet has learned.
Individual sessions $125

Sliding scale & Pro bono
I strongly believe that all dogs and their guardians should have training if needed and desired.
I understand that training is expensive, and sometimes our lives and the lives of our dogs are negatively impacted because of this. As a trainer I donate time to working with dogs at my local shelter and I also take a percentage of my clients on a sliding scale or as pro bono.
