Private Training Consultations


Private training is for individual attention in the home environment to teach and/or refine behaviors and to problem solve unwanted behaviors such as chewing or jumping.  All sessions are either done in your home or in a location that is conducive to your goals. If the training goals are specific to environments other than your home such as on a walk, at the vet or pet store, we incorporate these locations into our training program.

Private training is done on a pay as you go basis and is available for single or multiple pet households. Appointments are available during the day and evenings.


At this time, please note that appointments are typically booking 2-4 weeks in advance.

For clients who wish to be seen as soon as possible we do keep a cancellation list which will allow us to move your appointment up should an opening occur.

Prepare Your Pet for a New Baby


Don't leave it to chance, cross your paws and hope your pet adjusts!

For families with resident pets who wish to prepare their pet for the arrival of a new baby and how their life will change as the baby grows.

Initial consultation is 1.5 hours and is done in your home with all household members present.  

This service focuses on preparing your pet for the sights, sounds and smells of a new baby; evaluation of what your particular animal might be most sensitive to; establishing or refining good doggy door greetings for all those visitors you will have after the baby arrives and a focus on how your baby's development will affect your pet.  

The training and preparation you do for your pet is geared toward not only preparing your pet for when the baby comes home but for the most stressful time frame for adapting to a new child.  This is typically when the child reaches the age span between 8 months and 2 years when your child becomes more mobile.

This training should ideally begin by the 20th to 24th week of pregnancy.

 


Choosing or Integrating a New Pet


 
 
 

We offer consultations and assessment on adding or integrating a new pet into your home.  There are so many sources for acquiring a new pet and sometimes it is difficult to navigate through these sources to find the right pet for your home.  We can help you choose a breeder, shelter or rescue pet based on your individual household needs.  We can also assess a potential pet for you and help you integrate that pet into the home, setting everyone up for the most chance of success.  

When choosing any new pet it is very important to remember that the potential pet's current environment or history will have an impact on what you can expect from that pet.  It is heartbreaking to see a family adopt or purchase a family pet and end up with a serious behavior issue such as separation anxiety or biting that may have been prevented by more knowledge and information when choosing the pet.
