Dog training and Pet Behavior Experts

Live On-Line Video Services Pricing

At the beginning of COVID-19, we transitioned our services to live on-ine video consultations. Clients have been excited to discover the benefits of working remotely with a trainer who can evaluate their pet without the excitement or anxiety of a stranger in the home. Live on-line video services continue to be our most popular and cost effective option. In-person and hybrid (Zoom followed by in-person visit) services are also now available with an additional $50 travel fee per visit.

Behavior Consultation and Training

We work with all types of behavior issues in dogs, cats, birds, and exotic pets, from basic training to advanced problems rooted in anxiety, fear, and aggression. In order to provide the best outcome, we first determine if the problem is:

  1. a “behavior” issue – your pet is anxious, fearful or upset – this needs a Behavior Consultation; or
  2. a “training” issue – your pet needs to better understand what you would like them to do – this needs a Training visit

Our Behavior Consultations are designed to help you understand your pet’s behavior and how to change it. The consultant will assess your pet, answer any questions you have, and develop an action plan for you to implement that will address management. training, and behavior modification. Fear, anxiety, or aggression-based behaviors are often most effectively treated by the owners during their normal interactions with their pets. Purchasing additional visits can be very helpful in implementing the plan. Those who prefer a more DIY approach may prefer to work through the plan on their own, requiring little further assistance to reach their goals. Others may prefer or require additional help though our separate follow-up training and support services to implement and adjust the plan over time. We can structure the service to meet your needs. We have a veterinarian highly experienced with behavior and behavioral medication on our team to help achieve the best possible outcome if behavioral medication is indicated.

Success Stories

Veterinary Behavioral and Medication Support

Our veterinarians have a special interest in behavior and behavioral medication, and are in a unique position to assist clients whose pet’s may require expertise in both veterinary medicine and behavior.

The services described below are with our veterinarian. They are generally provided through Zoom, but may include an in-person appointment for an exam, when necessary. Within Washington State, our veterinarian will be able to prescribe medication or work with your vet.

Note: The Full DVM Consultation is designed for pets whose complex behavior, medical, or medication needs require the services of a veterinarian focusing on behavior. Due to the demand for services, we may be unable to accommodate requests for this level of service only because an insurance provider requires that services be performed by a veterinarian in order to provide coverage.
