Initial Behavior Consultation $165
Catherine will assess the intensity of aggression or other behavior problems and work with you to determine the causes and solutions. She will assess your dog’s potential for desired behaviors, establish a training plan, and introduce safety strategies customized to your situation. Catherine will educate you about dog body language, recommend training equipment and lay foundations necessary for training success. Video resources are provided to demonstrate discussed techniques. This initial session is about fully understanding the goals and expectations of the journey you are embarking on. Catherine will share resources to give you a quick start to managing and preventing the behavior issue for instant relief as well as lay the foundation for the longer behavior change work that is to come.
Subsequent behavior consultation sessions are available at the rate of $120 per hour. Each session is typically an hour long, though some clients benefit from having two thirty-minute sessions within a week, especially in separation anxiety cases. Included in this service is review of up to 5 minutes of your dog on video per week (best used to capture short clips for progress evaluation). After the session, Catherine will email you with links to resources discussed. All sessions include access to recorded video summary as a reminder for you.
Customized Behavior Consultation Packages with pre-paid, discounted rates are available following the Initial Behavior Consultation.
