Pre-Pet Consultation

Puppy or dog? Cat or Kitten? Pure breed or mixed breed? These are all questions we can help you answer with pre-pet counseling. We will help you pick the kind of pet that will suit your lifestyle, educate you on what responsibilities you can expect for that kind of pet, give advice, and answer questions. Please contact us to inquire about setting up an appointment — filling out the registration form is not required for this service.
$50 for a 1 hour consultation.

Does your dog hate going to the veterinarian? Does he start quivering as soon as the nail trimmers come out? These appointments are designed to fit your specific dog’s needs to make the trip to see the doctor much more enjoyable for both you and your pet. We want to make the veterinary office mean treats, not bad things!
Please see programs below.

Day Training

If you don’t have a lot of time for private lessons, no problem! We can take the training to your home while you are away. This training will include an initial consult to discuss your goals of the training and either a weekly transfer session to teach you the new skills and cues your dog has learned or an exit consult when all training is complete!
