Oh Behave

Dog Behavior Consultations

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

On-campus consultations are on hold, but we are currently offering 45-minute phone consultations at a reduced fee of $75. Please leave a message at 415.506.6280 or email ohbehave@marinhumane.org and we will set up an appointment time.

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.

  • 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. 

To schedule a Behavior Consultation, please call 415.506.6280.  Download and complete the behavior history form.


Private Training

We provide private training to you at our Novato campus or in your home. These one-on-one training sessions teach all levels of obedience exercises. You’ll work with an experienced instructor to design a training program that’s fun and just right for you and your dog.

  • At our Novato campus:  $50 per 30-minute session
  • Offsite/ in-home training:  $60 per 30-minute session (plus travel time to your home)

Prerequisite: Private Trainings require a previous Marin Humane Behavior Consultation or completion of a Marin Humane Training Class within the past 6 months.
