Behaviour Consult

As a dog behaviour consultant I specialize in preventing, managing, and modifying challenging behaviors in dogs. Even if your dog has bitten and you’re worried, talk to me about it prior to my visit and we work out a safety plan. Studying behaviorology, enables me to assess the contingencies surrounding the particular behaviour in your dog that is troublesome. Further studies in aggressive dogs and keeping abreast of current research enables me to specialize in taking on aggressive cases. Therefore making changes within the environment we can alter the behaviour. This will then make it possible for the dog to change its emotional response to the stimulus that was evoking the behaivour.

Rates – For a single consult which includes a written report and plan $175 Follow up sessions can be either a training plan or single sessions.
