- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
I charge $135/hour and I have a package of 3 x 1 hour sessions for $375. You can decide after the first session if you want the package and you would pay for it then. Most people get the help they are looking for in 3 sessions, some in just one or two sessions.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I normally go to the home first to see how the dog is in its own environment. If the dog is problematic at the door we will address this later. We go for a “structured walk” where the dog is right by our sides. I show the dog what I want and I then show the client how to do what I am doing. We often deal with dog or people aggression by going to an on-leash park. I help the clients with whatever difficulties they have, like separation anxiety, aggression etc., showing them how to communicate clearly with their dog and helping them to learn and understand communication that works for a dog.

Senior Teacher of The Alexander Technique since 1992. Trained with Cesar Millan, The Dog Whisperer, in 2013. Completed Animal Animal Communication and Tracking course with Anna Breytenbach and Jon Young in 2015.
