Is your dog barking at every little sound from the hallway? Lunging at other dogs? Refusing to leave your apartment? Growling when you walk by their food bowl? These behaviors and others like them can be confusing and sometimes frightening. I can help you get into sync with your dog. I have education and experience targeted toward the modification of challenging and complex behaviors.
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
Changing behavior takes time. When you start training you often see some changes right away. For those successes to stick you need regular guidance and accountability. I am committed to your long term success. That’s why my initial behavior modification package is the 6 training hour* Behavior Bridges package.
After the 60 minute virtual initial consult and 60 minute virtual foundation strengthening session you can choose to use your remaining 4 training hours in any combination of 60 minute virtual sessions, 30 minute virtual sessions, and 60 minute in-person sessions.
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:
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. I reply to emails on Sun, Mon, Tue, & Thu.
*Some behaviors require additional training beyond the 6 in the Behavior Bridges package.
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.

An initial consult plus 5 additional training hours, expires 7 months after the initial consult: $1160
This package is the minimum amount of training time for us to set your family up to successfully modify baffling behaviors. With 6 total training hours you will:
Learn environmental management techniques
Learn training concepts
Implement environmental management & training concepts
Receive regular coaching as you and your dog level up your skills
In the initial 60 minute virtual session I learn more about your dog’s behavior history, your home set up and what you’ve already tried to work things out. I provide you with ways to change the home set up and family schedule to prevent your dog practicing their baffling behavior and your first steps toward training new behavior.
At the end of the session we confirm at least your next 3 sessions on the calendar.
The second session is also 60 minutes and virtual so we can review video you’ve sent me of your practice and I can coach you through any little challenges you may have found while you worked with your dog. If the changes in your home set up and schedule need some tweaking we do that here.
The remaining 4 training hours of your package can be used in any combination of 60 minute virtual sessions, 30 minute virtual sessions, and 60 minute in-person sessions in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. This part of the training plan will be further customized to maximize your family’s progress.
*Some behaviors require additional sessions beyond 6 in the Behavior Bridges package.
EVERY DOG IS DIFFERENT

STOP THE MADNESS INTERVENTION
1 session: $375*
In this one session of up to 90 minutes I can provide you with management strategies to keep your whole family, humans and dogs, safe while you explore next steps.
You will learn the basics of dog body language and the importance of using tools like gates, leashes, and muzzles to keep your family safe. The session goal is to give you a deeper understanding of the behavior that concerns you and teach you how to stay safe around it.
This session is not designed to change your dog’s behavior.
*You may apply $285 of this session to a Behavior Bridges package and count this as your initial session of that package if you purchase within 1 week of our Intervention session.
