Behavioral Consultation and Treatment

An introductory consultation is the first step towards better behavior where Sara will discuss your goals for your pet and you pet’s history with you, review nutrition, management, and consult with your veterinarian to provide a full-spectrum of support. From this appointment a custom training or behavior modification plan will be created that is tailored to your needs!

Our approach is science-based and rooted in ethology and psychology. We adhere to the guidelines set forth by governing organizations and outlined in the position statements authored by the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior on humane behavior modification of animals.

Some examples of common issues include:

  • Aggression (i.e. Barking, Lunging, Growling, Snapping, Biting etc.)

  • Reactivity (i.e. Barking, Lunging, Growling, Snapping, Biting etc.)

  • Excessive Barking or Vocalization

  • Destructive Behavior (i.e. Chewing, Digging, Tearing Inappropriate Objects)

  • Accidents (Urination or Defecation) in the Home

  • Anxiety, Fear, or Stress,

  • Rude or Pushy Social Interaction

  • Resource Guarding Objects, Food, or Space

  • Excessive Licking, Chewing or Grooming of Self

  • Ingestion of Non-Food Items

  • Coprophagia (Ingestion of Feces)

  • Regular Gastrointestinal Distress

  • and Much More!

After the initial consultation session, you will receive an estimate and outline of your unique training plan to help you reach your training goals.
