Phone or Zoom Consultations

We are happy to offer both in-home and remote consultations, depending on the issue and location.   Sometimes it's a good idea to discuss issues via Zoom, and see whether they warrant an in-home consult.   Often, a lot can be accomplished. 


A phone consult for serious issues usually takes 45 minutes to an hour, and is more productive if we have video of the dog beforehand.


Zoom visits are $90.00 per hour

In home consults range from $150 to $225 an hour, depending on location

If you'd like a consult, feel free to fill out this history form - we'll get it and reply:

Whether you are looking to solve behavior problems, enhance your relationship with your own dog through a private home or telephone consultation...or to improve your knowledge of dog behavior, we hope you find our services of value.

Private Consultations - for people who are experiencing some troubles with their companion animals, and need one-on-one help. We know your situation is unique and deserves to be treated as such. In our world, there is no such thing as "one size fits all." Problems such as leash frustration, aggression, separation anxiety and destruction all deserve individual attention, so that solutions can be found that fit everyone in your household.
