Puppy Basics

Puppy basics is for dogs 6 months of age and younger. It is never too early to begin training, and I will tailor training sessions around your pup's vaccination status. Puppy basics include:

  • ​Crate training

  • Leash walking

  • House training

  • Biting associated with play/teething

  • Jumping

  • Inappropriate chewing

  • Socialization

  • Building frustration tolerance

Rates:

75-dollar consultation fee (1 hour). 

75 dollars per session (1 hour.) Number of sessions needed will depend on your puppy's unique learning style, but plan on 3-5 sessions. 

Dog Obedience

Dog obedience is for dogs 7 months of age and older. Regardless of if you've adopted an adult dog or if the dog you've had since puppyhood needs help learning boundaries and using manners, I can work with you to develop a training plan that brings out the best in him/her. It is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks!

Older dogs often have very different motivations for their behaviors than puppies do, though the addressed behaviors are the same as puppy basics. 

75-dollar consultation fee (1 hour). 

75 dollars per session (1 hour). Number of sessions needed will depend on your dog's unique learning style, but plan on 3-5 sessions. 

Behavioral Modification

If your dog is displaying nuisance behaviors that go beyond etiquette breaches like jumping or leash pulling, he/she may need to be taught positive replacement behaviors to use instead of their current ones. I work with problem behaviors including:

  • Leash reactivity

  • Unchecked prey drive

  • Barrier aggression

  • Dog/dog aggression

  • Lunging at skateboards, bicycles, etc.

  • Resource guarding

  • Mounting

  • Obsessive behaviors

  • Poor confidence in new situations

Rates:

75-dollar initial consultation fee (this will run approximately 1 hour).

75 dollars per session (one hour). The number of sessions needed to produce and maintain will be highly dog specific, but please plan on booking approximately 3-5 sessions minimum. 

Dog Walking and Drop-Ins

* Due to time constraints and the price of gasoline, I am currently not walking or sitting for new clients. I am training and providing behavioral modification only. *

All dogs require daily exercise, but with work and family demands, it can be difficult to ensure your furry friend(s) get out and about. You can trust that I will treat your pets as if they were my own, giving them my undivided attention (no phone calls, texting, etc.) and treating them with respect and care. I offer walking services in the location of your choice in half hour, hour and hour and a half increments. Prices are as follows:

Half hour: $20 

Hour: $35 

Hour and a half: $50

Drop-in visit for cats (including feeding, play time and changing litter): Pricing is the same as dog visits.

Note: Training is not part of walking services. I am happy to combine services, please contact me for rates. 

If your pet is older or prefers to stay at home, I can spend time with him/her in the comfort of your home and yard doing what activities suit them. Whether your dog(s) want to play fetch, use a puzzle game, or simply cuddle up, I will tailor my visits to each individual pet.

Pet sitting

* Due to time constraints and the price of gasoline, I am currently not walking or sitting for new clients. I am training and providing behavioral modification only. *

I offer pet sitting in your home. As I was formerly employed by a police department and have a completely clean background, you can feel confident knowing that your home, belongings and of course pets, are safe in my care. I am a lover of all animals, and have experience caring for cats, rats, rabbits, ferrets, Guinea pigs, and small birds. I can also tend to your plants, collect your mail, etc.

Dawn-dusk stays (with breaks for me to care for my own animals) are possible, as are overnights. These types of stays are available less frequently than training and walking services. Please contact me for availability and rates.
