Pre-Adoption ConsulTATION

"Which Dog is Right For Me?" Consult ($150)

I absolutely love when clients do the work BEFORE picking out a new dog. While all dogs are individuals, you can definitely give yourself the best shot by picking a dog to best suit your needs. Before picking your dog, we will have a conversation about what it is you are looking for in a dog. We can discuss if a shelter dog or a dog from a breeder makes the most sense and how to go about choosing said dog. If you have a dog in mind, I can talk to the foster parents or go to the shelter with you* and can perform the C-BARQ (Canine Behavioral Assessment and Research Questionnaire) as well as observe the dog interacting with you to give you a better idea what the dog's temperament is and if it is a good fit for your family.
