We are happy to evaluate and have an initial behavior consultation for a variety of behavior problems but may refer serious aggression cases to a Vet Behaviorist. Aggression level is determined by evaluating bite history, determining the dog’s bite threshold and the dog’s bite inhibition( damage caused by the bite) before or during the initial consultation. If you have a behavior concern with your dog, do NOT wait to get help. It can take weeks to get an appointment with a certified professional. Behavior problems do not resolve on their own, they often progress and get worse without treatment. Don’t hesitate to get the help you need! We encourage all dog owners to discuss behavior concerns with their Veterinarian to rule out medical causes.
Discounted packages are offered to clients who commit to 4 or more training sessions, up to 15% off! 1 hour sessions after the first consult are $95/hr.
