Kickoff Consultation With Trainer or Behavior Consultant
(live, 60 minutes)
Assessment & Goal Setting: We assess your dog and situation, then help you define and prioritize clear, achievable goals for your dog’s behavior. Next, we define the skills, management, and behavior therapy exercises needed to help you reach your goals.
Kickoff Missions: We start working on impactful training & behavior exercises (missions!) so you and your dog can begin to make progress toward your goals right away!
Program Recommendation: Based on everything we see and learn during your consult, we determine which of our program options are best suited to your goals and budget, and your dog’s unique needs and learning style.
