Oh Behave

Dog Behavior Consultations

Having problems with your canine companion’s behavior? You’re not alone!

Private consultations address the “why” of your predicament and a “how to modify” guide for behavior problems. We’ll discuss your dog’s history, try to observe the problem behavior, explain how to modify it, and then demonstrate the applicable techniques.

  • In-person Behavior Consultations at Marin Humane are 75-minutes long and fees begin at $150.
  • For clients who would prefer the consultation at their home, the rate is $175 plus travel time to your home.
  • Need a more flexible option? We offer a 60-minute virtual consultation to get started on the best way to address your concerns from the comfort of your home. The fee for this service is $100.
  • Dogs adopted from Marin Humane within the past six months receive one 45-minute complimentary phone consultation.

Behavior consultations can be booked online. Just use our convenient scheduling tool and reserve your spot. Get started >>
