What to expect


Firstly, we believe it is only ethical to be honest and realistic about the expectations of both the dog and the human.

During your first appointment, we will perform an assessment of your dog and your household. This will allow us to understand the core of the issues, then build a training plan unique to your household’s needs. We’ll need to determine what your top 3 stressors are which are caused by your dog. Then we’ll answer the question the most important question.

“How can we build a training plan that will meet your household’s needs for safety, quality of life, and is within your resources?”

  • First, we will provide solutions to keep everyone safe.
  • Second, we will provide easy ways to tire out your dog.
  • Third, we will cover how to train skills for no more than 2 minutes at a time.

Looking to book?


We make it easy to book and pay online. The date you choose will be our first appointment (the assessment). This will take approximately 1.5-2 hours. Your second appointment will be set by us at the end of the first appointment. Because your success is very important to us, we will check in to see how things are going between appointments.

After 2 appointments, we will discuss a prognosis based on our experience and education. In this team effort, we will discuss how comfortable and confident you feel. Based on our discussion, we will decide together whether you will benefit from more appointments, or if it would be better to have you reach out again as needed.

Availability is limited, as we are only taking a limited number of new clients at this time. While we may not have an immediately available time slot, this is so that we can provide to highest quality work possible. We appreciate your patience.
