Oh Behave

Dog Behavior Consultations

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

Consultations address the “why” of your predicament and a “how to modify” guide for behavior problems. A private session with a behavior consultant will provide insight into how you can better coexist with your best friend.  We’ll discuss your dog’s history, try to observe the problem behavior, explain how to modify it, and then demonstrate the applicable techniques.

  • Consultations are 75-minutes long and fees begin at $125.
  • For clients who would prefer the consultation in their home, the rate is $150 plus travel time to your home.
  • Dogs adopted from Marin Humane within the past six months receive one complimentary behavior consultation.
