Hourly training: $135 for the initial 1.5 hour consultation, working in your home or wherever the problem behavior is occurring, focusing on teaching you to work with your own animal. This format is ideal if you’d like to work on basic obedience or clicker training, such as a cat with a simple litter box issue, a horse who is hard to halter, or have a puppy you’d like to house train. After the initial consultation, future visits are $100 per hour.Also available remotely via phone, Skype, Zoom or FaceTime

Training four-pack: $400 for one 1.5 hour initial consult, followed by three one-hour sessions. If your pet’s problem needs more than one training session, this is our most popular package. Ideal for dogs with reactivity, aggression or impulse control issues, or cats with more serious behavior problems. Sessions might be held in your home or wherever the problem is occurring (car, park, on walks…)  I will teach you to train your own pet. Also available remotely via phone, Skype, Zoom or FaceTime

Day training:  $400 for four one-hour sessions, in your home, at my farm or as field trips. Don’t want to do the training work yourself? I will come to your house or take your dog to where the problem is occurring) and work with them on what they need. You are welcome to watch, or come along for some or all of these, and either way, I will show you what we worked on and show you how to transfer the training to you..

Behavior consultation: $250. Need a one-time assessment or consultation that includes a written report for a legal case or in conjunction with work with a veterinary behaviorist? This consultation takes two hours, and will include a written report of my observations as well as a behavior modification plan, if needed.

Shelter behavior consulting: $600 per day, plus expenses, or $100 per hour for phone/skype consults. Want to train staff and volunteers in canine and feline body language, handling, and enrichment?
