Dog Behavior Consulting with Tenacious Dog Training

Having a dog with behavioral issues can be a lot of things. It can be challenging, embarrassing, isolating, heartbreaking and frustrating…the good news is I can help! My initial behavior consulting packages are done online, as to not change the environment, therefore accidentally influencing  your dog’s behavior.

What does a Behavioral Consult look like?

We ask the whole family is home and able to participate.

  • Consultations typically take 60 minutes as they involve collecting historical information, observing the pet(s) if appropriate, providing you with basic management and safety guidelines. All session are done via Zoom. 
  • Furthermore, we provide an outline of what treatment for these behaviors is likely to include for future appointments.
  • All of our behavior modification plans are rooted in modern science-based protocols, which use positive reinforcement training along with management strategies to setup the whole family, four-legged and two-legged, for success.
  • Also please understand I do prefer a team approach, when appropriate. I may recommend a veterinary visit.

Some of the behaviors I can help with include:

  • Reactivity
  • House soiling
  • Destructive behaviors
  • Fearfulness
  • Resource guarding
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Lack of impulse control
  • Excitability
If you have an issue I do not work with, I have a fantastic network of trainers I would be happy to make to put you in contact with. For human directed aggression, I recommend you first start with having your Veterinarian do a vet to vet consult with a Veterinarian Behaviorist.  Learn more by clicking here: What is a Veterinary Behaviorist

  • Our initial behavior consulting is $357.00, this also includes 2 follow up training sessions all done via zoom.
Please note: the quantity of additional follow up  individual training sessions recommended will likely vary from pet to pet based on the complexity of the behavior concerns, goals set, and the rate of which progress is being made. Lastly, behavior change does take time and effort on behalf of the whole family. Please make sure are able to commit the necessary time each day to work with your dog on our behavior modification plan.
