My goal is to offer quality, affordable behavioral aid for you and your pets. I work with lasting solutions in mind as opposed to a quick fix, and I’ll get you involved so you can pick up where my work leaves off to allow a strong relationship to develop between your pet and you.  I charge by the hour, because each animal is different and set fees and time limits aren’t as flexible as the nature of this work requires.

As a graduate student, I do not have the time to waste your time, nor do I have any wish to waste your money. I started this service because I genuinely enjoy working with animals, in particular troubled animals, and will work as quickly, efficiently, and honestly as I can. Some situations require long term behavioral work, and I will be upfront with you throughout the entire process and willing to discuss our options along the way. Prices below are listed in regard to FELINE clients – if you would like work done with other mammals, please inquire directly for pricing. Pricing varies due to my familiarity with the species and its behavior. As there are already many facilities that cater to dog training and behavior work I would prefer to work with the more extreme social problems, though, of course,  this is negotiable.

Evaluation – $50  – required before I take on any client. This allows me to assess the animal and its current behaviors and general state of health. At this time I will also be taking a history which may provide insight into the roots of the behavior. Evaluations may last up to two hours.

In-home consultation – $100 – One Time Only. Additional consultation will be seen as “in-home behavior modification” and will be charged as such. This session includes some physical behavior work with the pet, and is designed for people who have had some behavioral experience working with animals. Includes evaluation, and a crash course in non-verbal communication methods.  Time limit, 2.5 hrs.

In-home behavior work with cat and owner – $25/hr – (base rate – subject to change depending on issue).

As a long term advocate for pet adoption and rescue, if you are seeking help with a recently (within 6months) adopted rescue pet from a local shelter or humane society I am very pleased to offer a 10% discount.

I charge a travel fee of $10 within a 20mile radius, fee increases to $20 above 20miles. If you live farther than 30 miles away, please contact me to discuss pricing and scheduling.

I REQUIRE that payment is made at the time services are rendered. I accept cash, personal checks and credit cards.
