Private Sessions

In the initial consultation, Brittany will discuss the behavioral concern(s) with you. She'll discuss the history of your dog’s behavior(s), and will share with you what she believes is motivating the behavior(s) and what can be done to improve your situation. The first session will cover management techniques and the foundations of the training needed to put into place. Brittany will also recommend the number of sessions she suggests you schedule to accomplish your goals.

Packages available after initial consultation

  • 3-session package: $360
  • 5-session package: $600

Please note that almost all behaviors will require multiple sessions. If you believe you require fewer than 3 sessions, each session will be $125. 

Sessions include:

  • Training instruction and demonstration
  • Hands-on training
  • Behavior management hand-outs
  • Personalized write-up (provided, at minimum, every other session)
  • Follow-up via email and phone

Training Walks

Training walks are an excellent option for dog parents to get their dogs out for exercise and training at the same time. This is, primarily, a good option for loose-leash walking clients that want to maintain or improve their dog’s positive walking behaviors. It can also be useful for reactive dog clients, seeking exercise for their dog without sacrificing the training standards.
