TRAINING AND BEHAVIOR PROGRAMS

I can help with problems like puppy/dog house breaking, biting, excessive barking, jumping, destructive behavior, and other issues. For your convenience, all sessions take place in your home and/or neighborhood, where we want your dog to behave! Regardless of which program you choose, I will be there to support you throughout the entire process. Programs can be customized to meet your individual needs.

INITIAL CONSULTATION

This session lasts approximately sixty to ninety minutes, in order to observe your dog's behavior and to clarify your goals for further training. I will make recommendations during the session, and follow up with written recommendations within the next forty-eight hours.
