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.
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.
