We’ll work together:
  • In your home.
  • Your yard.
  • Your street.

Session Duration

On the day of your session we’ll be working together for a minimum of 3 hours. The average length of a session is 4 to 5 hours, however some sessions require 6 to 7 hours.

The exact length of your session will depend on your specific circumstance and will be determined once we’re working in-session.

Session Days and Times

I offer sessions on weekdays and weekend days. Session start time is typically late morning.

Your After-Session e-book

After your session, I’ll create your after-session e-book. Your e-book will contain reading, reference materials and exercises to reinforce what you learned in your session. Your e-book is your reference guide. The e-book is completed and sent to you 3 to 4 days after your session.

After Your Session

You’ll continue to implement the exercises we practiced in your session. You’ll be able to refer to your after session e-book, and continue to work on yours and your dog’s behavioral program.
