Canine Behavior Modification Services


Our canine behavior services are provided by the owner and behavior consultant, Carrie.  She has experience working with dogs with a variety of  issues.  Carrie works with force free, science based methods when training and doing behavior modification.

Carrie has obtained her Master's in Companion Animal Behavior and Counseling and received her certificate in January 2017. She has gained experience from residencies and externships in the Master's program as well as cats and dogs in her personal life with behavior issues.

Behavior Consultation $90/hr

If you are having a specific behavior issue with your pet such as inappropriate chewing, inappropriate urination, digging, counter surfing, fearfulness, separation anxiety, etc., or just want to work on 1 or 2 basic behaviors, then by the hour sessions may be best for you. In this hour we will discuss the best plan of action for your pet and any follow up sessions that are recommended.  Packages are available at a discounted rate.

Basic Obedience $350 for 5 Lessons

Basic obedience training is perfect for dogs of any age! During the 1-hour sessions your dog will learn how to listen, focus, and relax while practicing everyday exercises such as sit, down, stay, come (recall) and how to walk without pulling on the leash. All training sessions are done at the client's home.

 "Just the Dog" Training $550 for 3 weeks or $660 for 4 weeks

With "just the dog" training Carrie will come to your home 2 times per week for 1 hour during the day and work with your dog on basic obedience training or minor behavior problems. We will go outside to potty, train, play, and go outside once more before I leave. There will be an initial consultation with the family and then a final transition meeting after the 3 or 4 weeks.  Each day Carrie will leave detailed notes on the lesson for the day so that the family is able to reinforce what was worked on throughout the session.

These types of training sessions are perfect for busy families or working individuals who do not have much time during the week to attend training classes.
