How it works:
Start with filling out an intake form and telling me more about you, your dog, and your goals.
Schedule an initial consultation available both in person or virtually.
After the consultation, choose a package or opt for per session follow ups.
Follow ups are scheduled every 1-2 weeks. Most families are happy with 6-8 sessions per behavior need/context.
In Tune can help!
With over a decade of experience, we specialize in fear, aggression, and reactivity (stranger danger, resource guarding, noise sensitivity etc.).

When you schedule a consultation, you will be provided educational videos, reading materials, and you will be asked to send relevant video footage of your dog. During the 60 minute consultation, we will discuss your dog's day to day routine and the behaviors you want to address. I will recommend an enrichment plan, management protocol, and opportunistic training guidelines. You are encouraged to take notes and recordings during the session. I will provide you with notes via email within 2 working days.
This session will cover most of the above plus how to interview a breeder/rescue and how to find the right breed/dog for your lifestyle. Additionally you will receive tips on how to dog proof your home, ways your breeder/rescue can assist with a smooth transition, guidelines for the first days and weeks to come, and much more!
In Person: $250
During 60 min follow up appointments we begin training alternate/replacement behaviors out of context. When those behaviors are proofed, we will strategically expose your dog to small increments of the "problem" context. We continue these subthreshold exposures, increasing difficulty at your dog's pace, until you reach your goals or until you feel you can take the reigns solo.
New Puppy/Dog Follow Ups
This sensitive period is all about prevention. We will cover common challenges, how to prevent them, how to spot the early signs, and best practices to address them. You will receive information on common mistakes well meaning dog parents make and what to do instead. Last, we will start basic manners training.

Expectations for Training: Dogs are living organisms and thus training time frames and results have many variables. Including but not limited to; past training, learning curve (owner and dog), breed specialty, adherence to the training plan, and more. I will do my best to give you an accurate estimate of training time and results, but ethically cannot give guarantees. Click here to read my ethics pledge.
