  1. Prevent: Success relies on preventing unnecessary safety risks and stress.
  2. Intervene: Understanding our dog’s signals early allows us to kindly intervene and guide them towards better choices.
  3. Train: By building on your success, the dog can learn to cope independently and trust you in navigating our weird human world.

Does Amanda offer single sessions?

Amanda believes in the power of sustained effort and dedication for addressing canine behavior issues. Therefore, Amanda rarely agrees to single sessions, acknowledging that sustainable behavior changes in dogs entail time and effective habits.

Amanda’s focus remains on guiding you towards long-lasting success through your journey. Investing in a series of sessions will address immediate concerns and foster lasting behavioral changes for you and your dog.

Does Amanda offer board and train?

Amanda’s approach to behavior issues focuses on teaching both you and your dog. That’s why she DOES NOT offer board and train services.

A blend of factors shaped a dog’s behavior, including learned history, genetics, environment, development and more. Amanda dedicates herself to achieving the best results for your dog. To address behavioral issues, she firmly believes that dogs learn most effectively in their own environment with their human family members.

While board and train programs can be beneficial for puppies to learn foundational manners and socialization, Amanda highly recommends K-904 Board and Train for such cases. Under Jamie’s care in a home environment, puppies receive comprehensive socialization and training.
