Nonna has become such a nice young lady...
"We just had company at the door and Nonna did SO WELL! She stayed focused on me....sat and didn't growl, bark or jump. I'm so proud and happy... With Barb's help, Nonna has become such a nice young lady. With continued work, I'm sure she will continue to improve."
~ Tamyra A.
You have given us the tools we need...
"Thank you for all of your help. You have been thorough and wonderful and have given us the tools that we need to continue to work with Buddy. There is no doubt that his behavior has improved. "

The program is structured for in-home sessions lasting about an hour.
The first session will be an in-depth consultation to share your dog's history, discuss behaviors that need changing, set realistic and achievable goals and begin training foundation skills. An individualized program will be developed and implemented during the remaining home visits. You will receive personalized attention and the focus will be on your dog's success. Phone and email support are always available even after sessions are completed.
5-Session Package | $465
Behavior Modification, Pet Dog Manners, Problem Behaviors
This is your personalized program tailored to working on what is important to you and your dog(s). If necessary, some meetings can take place "on the road" to work on specific issues that present themselves away from the home environment. If your dog is reactive, fearful or has issues like resource guarding - or is older and has been practicing unacceptable behaviors for a while, this program is recommended. This package is also good for multiple dog households.
3-Session Package | $285
Certain issues like housetraining, jumping, chewing or pulling on leash, can usually be handled in fewer sessions with a simple training and/or management program. This program is for dogs who just need some basic obedience training. Limited to working with a single dog only.
Discounts available for my neighbors in the 76244 zip code.
Consultation | $120
No-obligation evaluation and assessment

You will receive an honest assessment of what will be required to modify the dog's behavioral issues. Training and/or a management plan can be introduced during the visit. If you choose to continue with training, the consult fee will be rolled into the package price. The consultation normally lasts 60-90 minutes.
