Adult Dog Essentials
Adult dogs usually know something about the world in general but they might not know enough about our specific part of the world. I’m here to help you slow down and team up with your dog.
Whether you’re integrating a new dog into your family or smoothing out a few misunderstandings with a dog who’s been with you for a while, I craft training plans that can be folded into your current schedule as much as possible.
These packages are for families working on basic manners training and setting up your home and schedule so that human and canine family members are succeeding. If your dog has any reactivity, aggressive behaviors, or fear-based behaviors please check out the Baffling Behaviors offerings.
Every training session includes a follow up email with support materials. I am available for email questions between sessions and am usually able to respond within 24 hours.

HOW IT WORKS
Initial sessions are virtual so I can learn more about your dog and develop a training plan. After that we'll work together to decide what combination of virtual and in person sessions will be right for your training goals.
On Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays in-person sessions happen near my home in Clinton Hill Brooklyn. On Tuesdays I have a limited number of session times available to travel to client neighborhoods. Please see here for the neighborhoods I serve.
For information about what to expect from virtual sessions see my articles:
Once we have a session confirmed on the calendar, I will send you a couple of documents to fill out in order to focus our work. Please return those to me at least 48 hours in advance of our session. When I receive those completed forms I can put you on the waitlist for any sessions that may become available earlier than your scheduled session.
When you are ready to schedule I will send you a link to the calendar so you can choose your dates and times from my availability.
Remember on Sundays, Mondays, and Thursdays in-person sessions happen near my home in Clinton Hill Brooklyn. On Tuesdays I have a limited number of session times available to travel to client neighborhoods.
