Private Behavior Consults
  • Are you in a public class but having a particular problem at home?
  • Does your dog shy away from new people?
  • Does he lunge at the end of the leash when he sees another dog?
  • Does he still have housetraining accidents?


Many behavior problems like those listed above and many others lend themselves to individualized training programs designed to focus specifically on you and your dog. We are happy to provide one-on-one training services for dogs of any age in your home or in the environment where you are experiencing the problem. In your first meeting with the trainer, you will review a previously completed behavior questionnaire, and discuss the problem and your goals in more detail. The trainer will assess the dog, the dog’s environment and your interaction with the dog and then begin to devise a training plan. It may or may not be necessary to witness the problem behavior itself. The initial consult may last up to two hours. The trainer will demonstrate any initial exercises that may be left as “homework” and make sure that you are comfortable with them prior to the end of the first meeting.

It is important to note that many behavior problems are not “fixed” at the end of one meeting. Changing a dog’s behavior (and perhaps yours!) requires time, work and patience. Each situation will be assessed and an individualized plan developed to address your needs and goals.

Please note that given the time and attention devoted to each private consult client, there may be a two to three week wait until we are able to schedule an appointment.

  • Cost: Initial Consult: $175, following one hour appointments: $100 per hour.
