Behavior Analysis and Training

"Keira used to not be able to walk past another dog without reacting and now she can approach, sniff, and even wags her tail, and it’s all thanks to Sophie’s help!" - Natalia and Sean (Keira's humans)

"I love the way Sophie is
able to break down complicated behavior principles into everyday examples and strategies" - Jean (Julius and Caesar's human)

Having a dog with some behavioral issues can be difficult, embarrassing, and at its worst, dangerous! I'm here to help without judgment and give you a fresh start with your dog. Rather than a one method fits all approach, we will conduct an initial consult in order to create a customized plan including enrichment recommendations, wellness recommendations, management strategies, and teaching new behaviors with techniques such as desensitization, counter-conditioning, pairing, de-escalating techniques, etc.

Throughout the program, we provide ongoing support and guidance to dog owners to ensure that they have the knowledge and tools they need to maintain the new behaviors their dog has learned. We also help owners create a positive and enriching home environment that supports their dog's continued success. Our approach is based on building trust, confidence, and a positive relationship between the dog and their human.

Possible Behavioral Problems:

Leash reactivity

Destruction of property

Excessive barking

Jumping/mouthing as an adult dog

Step 1. Schedule a Consultation

Initial Consult/Assessment: $225 

 During the initial consult, we will discuss the dog's behavior and training history as well as observe the dog's behavior and do some behavioral assessments as well. I will have you send me videos as well as fill out an intake form ahead of time so I am prepared for our meeting. After the consultation is over, based on the information gathered, I will create a written assessment including training recommendations. During the session, we will discuss what Training Package makes the most sense.
