To set up a Behavior Consulting Program, you’ll start by having a free phone call with a front desk team member. We’ll make sure this program is the right fit for you, collect payment for the program, and schedule your appointments.
Your Behavior Consulting Program begins with a 90-minute initial consultation. Depending on your dog’s behavior and your trainer’s availability, this may take place in person at our facility or remotely via Zoom. In this appointment, your trainers will sit down with you and your family to discuss your dog. You’ll tell us about their behavior – when these problems started, how often they occur, what you’ve tried so far to fix it, etc. We’ll use this information to create a custom behavior modification plan for you and your dog. During the initial consultation, your trainer will give you management techniques to apply right away to keep everyone safe and homework exercises to start working on with your dog.
At the end of the initial consultation, you’ll pick up the included training equipment and schedule six 60-minute follow-up lessons with your trainer. These appointments are generally scheduled every 1-3 weeks, depending on how often your trainer thinks you should meet. In these appointments, your trainer will review your progress and answer any questions you have about your dog’s behavior. They will advise you on the next steps to take to further your dog’s progress.
If your dog is lunging and barking at other dogs, our Lunge & Barkers Anonymous Program combines everything in the Behavior Consulting Program with our popular Reactive Recovery class to accelerate your dog’s progress.
