What To Expect During A Dog Behavior Consultation:
Karen will email you a questionnaire prior to your initial appointment which must be filled out and returned to her 48 hrs prior to the first appointment. This is to include a very detailed history of your dog’s behavior problems. While at the first session Karen will be asking additional questions while observing your dog’s behavior and the interaction of your dog with family members. The first follow up session will be booked at least 7 to 10 days after the initial visit where Karen will go over her management ,environmental enrichment recommendations and behavior modification plan. The ability and willingness to provide consistency along with patience while managing and implementing the training plan from all people having contact with the dog is crucial to a successful outcome. There is not always an upward trajectory of success. You must understand that changing the person’s behavior ALONG with the dogs behavior is important and may have many ups and downs along the path to successful outcomes.
Depending on your family’s needs, Karen will suggest on-going training instruction which can be purchased as a package of 4,8 ,12 or 16 sessions. Pricing starts at $700 and sessions are 60 to 90 minutes in length and include phone call support between sessions.
The behavioral issues Karen frequently consults on may include general fear-aggression, dog-dog issues, remedial socialization, issues between dogs and children, and a variety of other behavioral issues which could require anything from management to intensive desensitization and counter conditioning.
