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 $125.
  • For clients who would prefer the consultation at their home (still outside), the rate is $150 plus travel time to your home.
  • Need a more flexible option, you can do a 45-minute virtual consultation to get started on the best way to address your concerns from the comfort of your home. This service is $75.
  • Dogs adopted from Marin Humane within the past six months receive one 45-minute complimentary phone consultation.

To inquire about any of these services, please call 415.506.6280 or email ohbehave@marinhumane.org and we will send information to register, pay, and schedule.  When emailing, please include the following behavior history form.
