Before the consultation, Alana will send you a questionnaire and behavior screen to fill out on your dog so she can get a detailed behavioral history. Alana provides you with the basic information you need to resolve behavioral problems humanely, using principles and techniques based in science and canine psychology. She teaches you how to manage the environment and implement behavior modification correctly to set your dog up for success.
Dog behavior consults are about three hours. If more time is needed than the designated time for the appointment, a follow up appointment is scheduled. Dogs with behavioral problems generally benefit by a consultation and a few follow up lessons.
Dog behavior consults are scheduled by appointment. Deposits are required to hold appointment times and are nonrefundable.
