Let’s Solve Your Pet’s Behavior Problems Together.

We are the leading pet behavior experts in Northern Virginia and the metro D.C. area.  

Our in-home consultations allow us to evaluate your pet’s behavior in their familiar environment where we uncover the root cause of problem behaviors.  We then build a custom behavior treatment protocol that teaches you how to reduce stress, anxiety, fear, or aggression while implementing successful desensitization and behavior modification techniques to resolve your pet’s behavior issues.

We use a variety of positive approaches, never harsh or punishing.  We  will show you how to resolve your pet’s behavior issues and rebuild your relationship with your pet, just like we’ve done for so many of our clients.  You can view some of our testimonials on our Happy Tails page.

We’ve been helping people and their pets since 1990.

We have successfully resolved thousands of tough behavior problems.  For dogs, challenging separation anxiety, canine rivalry, many types of aggressive dog behavior, fears and phobias, house soiling issues, and puppy behaviors such as destructiveness, nipping, jumping, and crate training.

For cats, we’ve successfully resolved numerous litter box issues, territorial spraying, feline rivalry, destructive behavior, as well as a variety of aggressive cat behaviors.  We have also helped many pets adapt to a new home and family, easing the transition for puppies, kittens, many rescue pets, and even house rabbits.

For local clients in Northern Virginia, Maryland and D.C.

Our pet behavior evaluations are done in the comfort of your home.  In home consultations give us the advantage of viewing the world in which your pet lives.  If you’ve been struggling with the challenges of your dog’s or cat’s behavior issues and have been hoping to find someone knowledgeable and effective, give us a call at 703-327-7205 or fill our our easy form to contact us.

“I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you. We had the two   dachshunds, Precious and Jasmine who had a hard time adapting to our new baby. I am happy to say that both dogs are doing WONDERFUL! Things are just great! I just wanted to say thank you again because had it not been for you, we probably wouldn’t have our Jasmine with us anymore because it seems everyone thought getting rid of her was the only option and you helped us prove them wrong. 🙂 Thanks again and take care.”
