Our goal is to educate people about canine behavior. We promote harmonious canine-human relationships by demonstrating humane training tactics, interrupting unrealistic expectations and minimizing the relinquishment of dogs with behavior problems that are resolvable.

Our mission is accomplished by providing in-home canine-friendly training, accurate training materials, and safe, healthy and humane tools for modifying behaviors.

We handle various forms of aggression, anxieties, housetraining, behavior on leash, attention-seeking behaviors like barking, jumping, mouthing and many more behavioral concerns!

Seeking help from a canine behavior specialist is much like a human visiting a specialist, in that, there are generally no quick fixes. Changing behavior is a multi-step process that takes time and commitment!!

Step A: Intial 1.5-2 hour in-home assessment and evaluation fee   $180

Involves: History taking, observation of behavior & environment, discussion/demonstration of initial behavior work (if the situation is workable), and a typed report to summarize what was covered.


Step B: Follow-up programs - particular package will be recommended by behaviorist after the initial consultation (serves to solidify, review and modify training techniques)
