What is a Kickoff Consultation?

You have goals. Your dog has needs. Our kickoff consultations help you design (and get to work on!) a fully customized Nature-Driven Nurture™ program to achieve your goals, while meeting your dog’s unique behavioral needs – as a species, a breed/mix, and an individual.

What's Included:

Pre-Consult Nature/Nurture Assessment

(online, self-paced, ~45 min)
  • Nature Assessment (the biological factors, individual traits, and life experiences that make your dog one-of-a-kind)
  • Nurture Assessment (your dog’s current environment & relationships; your behavior & training goals)

Kickoff Consultation With Trainer or Behavior Consultant

(live, 60 minutes)
  • Assessment & Goal Setting: Using your pre-consult assessment, we review your dog’s Nature and your current Nurture to help you define and prioritize fair, achievable training & behavior goals.
  • Implementation: We start working on impactful, Nature-Driven interventions (environmental design, relationship dynamics, wellness routines, and/or skills & behavior therapy exercises) 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 Nature.
Our client services counselors can talk you through our consultation options and help figure out the best starting point for you and your dog based on your goals and their behavior.
