First we connect over the phone and then we do a in person, hands on consult. My initial consult is $250 and it takes as long as it takes. I am able to meet you and your family. During this time I can assess and prioritize a behavior plan based on a combination of safety/realistic expectations and budget.

I started doing rescue work ten years ago. I was so disheartened by the way my reactive dogs were treated I knew there were other options. The common practices that were used such as, bark collars, prong collars, slip leads to snap, shock/E collars, loud noises were clearly a product of misuse of human power. Once I realized this way of training was both humane AND effective I knew that I found my forever life.
