I am not just a dog trainer, I am a K-9 Behavioral Consultant holding a Bachelor's Degree in Animal Science and a Master's Degree In Anthrozoology, which is the academic study of the human-animal bond, and under which I studied Ethology, Canine Behavior & Learning Theory, and Animal Ethics.
Most consultations can be handled over the phone, but for aggressive or reactive dogs an in home visit is required so that I can better observe your dogs behavior and develop a training plan based on your goals and your dogs current behavior and temperament.
I offer all phone consultations free of charge (and in many cases I can walk you through a solution during the call).
For aggression cases, complicated cases, or for caretakers who prefer or for whom I believe should be personally involved in the rehabilitation of their own dog, an in-home evaluation is suggested. My initial visit is billed at $300* which includes evaluation, history taking, a discussion of goals and training options, the development of a treatment plan and initial instruction on training/rehabilitation and/or safety protocols. Subsequent visits are billed at $150 each. Most cases can bring major improvement within just 3 to 4 visits.
*The $300 initial evaluation fee shall be waived for clients opting for any Board & Train program.
In any event I cannot reach out to you so the ball's in your court; hit the "Contact Me" button above or call me direct at 401-332-8669; the phone call is free, having a happy and well behaved dog is priceless!
