Private Consultation

I specialize in complex behaviors such as aggression, fear, anxiety and reactivity.  In many cases, my presence can make things worse – it is often much safer for your dog and for us that I not be there in person.  For this reason, my services are offered remotely via Zoom.  Zoom sessions are typically 90 mins ($100) and include follow up and support via email.  Follow up Zoom sessions are typically 1hr ($75).

If after our Zoom session(s) you feel that you are ready for one on one in person help, I will be happy to refer you to a trusted colleague in your area to continue with our training plan.

What to expect during our first zoom session:

Client interview – we will discuss details of the behaviors you are concerned with (environment, routines, health, behavior history, etc)

Functional Assessment – I will help you to determine the WHY behind these concerning behaviors. Once we understand WHY, the layers of our behavior “onion” become more clear.

Behavior change plan – we will discuss tools (muzzles, harnesses,etc), important body language signs and signals to watch for, what strategies work best for you and your situation and important safety measures in general.  You will have recommended “homework” specific to your situation.

Currently, only Zoom sessions are available. If you require an in person session, please fill out the “contact us” form and I will be happy to forward your information to a trusted colleague who can meet with you at your home.

RESCUES!  Since rescue holds a special place in my life, I offer the following discounts on all services:  If you are a rescue organization, your invoice will be discounted 25%.  If you have recently adopted a dog and are referred to me by the rescue, you will be discounted 10%.

WHY I CHOOSE FORCE FREE

Are you currently using a choke, prong or shock (ecollar/stim) collar to try to reduce difficult behaviors?  These tools can actually create more harm than good – when pain or uncomfortable sensations are paired with certain stimulus, that stimulus can become a predictor for pain.  For example, your dog pulls toward another dog on a walk and you make a correction with one of the above collars to make him stop.  Your dog will quickly begin to associate pain with other dogs – this is one of the ways that we accidentally create leash reactivity and aggression!
