  • Contact me with questions 

  • I may refer you to another consultant whose process is a better fit (such as in cases where I believe working one on one in person would be a better fit)

FAQs

What are your hours? Are you available nights and weekends?
Brown Dog

Mon to Fri, 9am to 4pm ET depending on the service. Please ensure our scheduled are compatible!

If you require evening or weekend hours, I am happy to refer.

How can a virtual session possibly work?
Dalmatian Dog

Cases begin by identifying and addressing contributing factors, laying foundational training, 

changing your behavior, etc. I rarely have to be in the room to get started and, in fact, can often resolve the case without ever meeting in person!

How will I know if you can cure my pet?
Pup

There is no "cure" when it comes to behavior. Behavior develops via a combo of learning, genetics, etc. so cannot be erased or removed. Instead, your pet will learn to make different choices, trust you, and more.

What are your cancellation policies?

Deposit and history are required to secure your appointment. Missed and cancelled sessions with less than 48hrs notice may result in loss of deposit. Inclement weather, illness, etc. will not impact your deposit​.

Do you take pet insurance?

Yes! If your policy covers behavior modification from a "Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist" you can be reimbursed !

Why are you so much more expensive than other trainers?
