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