We can help!
We begin with an initial 90 minute comprehensive consultation (masked) in your home to perform a behavioral assessment of your dog, share information about dog behavior / modification, and offer some preliminary management and training suggestions to help with the main issue. After the appointment, you will receive a detailed written evaluation, as well as educational handouts and a customized training plan designed specifically for you and your dog, should you want to have additional sessions.
How many sessions might you need after the initial appointment? That depends on the type and severity of the issue(s), the length of time it has been a problem, and how much time you can devote to working with your dog in between lessons. During the follow-up sessions, Bob will coach you through the training to improve your dog’s behavior. In between sessions, you and your dog will practice the exercises Bob teaches you.
Rates: The cost is $225 if you live in *Bloomington/Normal, and the session lasts about 90 minutes (masks required). We also offer virtual consultations.
Follow-up training: We will customize a package for you based on your dog’s assessment and your training goals. A 5-session package is $400 / 6 sessions is $480 if you live in *Bloomington/Normal. Each session includes a summary report and resources, and support between sessions with drop in “office hours” on Zoom twice a week. You will also receive a treat bag.
*If you live outside of Blo/No, there is an additional travel charge, and our travel radius is limited to 20 miles from SE Bloomington. If you live outside of our training area, we can still help with our virtual training!
