Balancing the results you want,

with the approach your dog needs.

Behaviour Consultations

Hourly Rate $100

If you are struggling with a training challenge or your dog is suffering from fear, anxiety, or stress needing a more complex intervention, a consultation is where to start.

As each of these problems can be so varied in severity, we do not recommend a set number of consultations up front. The assessment includes a 60-90 minute one-on-one private consultation in your home (or over Zoom to meet COVID restrictions). At the conclusion of this consult we will go over a training plan and recommendations will be made for follow up sessions needed to see success.

We may not be able to cover multiple challenges in one session, if you have several items to address we will start with the most urgent and will provide general tips as needed. To see progress it is important to focus on just a few key concepts and homework exercises at once.

Please keep in mind the greatest success will be seen with ongoing coaching. This is a lot like hiring a personal trainer, you may have all the info but the professional guidance that comes with regular check ins can ensure you meet your goals.

*Follow up sessions can be scheduled at $100/hour.

Training Packages

Pro-Active Puppy $375

So, you got a new puppy, or are looking to pick one, congratulations! Now what?

The Pro-Active Puppy package is for you. Including a quickly scheduled 30 minute phone or zoom consult to get you the crucial information upfront, supplementary materials, and 3 one-hour private training sessions. We will cover all of the essentials, customized to your puppy’s strengths and challenges. We also offer email/text support through out the program to clarify or assist with anything covered.

Don’t wait until you have an adult dog to ‘fix’ problems, spend the time now to learn how to understand your puppy, meet their unique needs, train behaviours you would like to see and prevent future stress.

  • Appropriate socialization
  • Body language
  • Species specific needs; enrichment, safety, choice
  • Puppy Trifecta; crate, leash, cooperation
  • House training
  • Biting /nipping/chewing and other nuisance behaviours
  • Focus, recall
  • Fear free vet care, handling, grooming
  • How to train anything; hand target, sit, place

*optional addition of remedial socialization daycare to round out their skills and learn one-one with a trainer and helper dogs.

Rescue Ready $400

Not all new additions are puppies, if you chose to rescue an adult dog (over 6 months) congratulations!

We have tweaked our Pro-Active Puppy plan to fit a dog who already has a behaviour history that you know nothing about.  They are past their chewing stage, but they may dig up your back yard. Potty trained but maybe they are already used to counter surfing!? We will tailor what is covered to the challenges you may face.

We encourage you to reach out to us about this program before you adopt so we can discuss important management while welcoming an adult dog into your household during our phone consultation.

Hourly Rate $100

If you are not sure you want to commit to a package and are looking for help with some basic training just to fill in the gaps of your current success you can book a minimum 1 hour session at our hourly rate.
