CONSULTATIONS

Telebehavior Consultations

We are excited to offer Telebehavior Consultations for all dog and cat behavior problems. While we are all struggling during the current Covid-19 crisis, our pet’s behavior issues do not end, and our pets are suffering too. We are using the easy ZOOM videoconferencing platform which we have found to be very user friendly. Just go to Book and Appointment (link) to find out more.

If you prefer an in-home consultation, we hope to offer them starting in June and expect to be very busy. To ensure you get on the schedule, we encourage you to reserve your spot now on our booking app. Should the situation change, we can always move your appointment to another date, or convert to a Telebehavior Consultation. Please check out our schedule and appointment options below.

In home consultations

We see clients all over Northern Virginia, Maryland and DC.. After a detailed behavioral history and evaluation, pet owners are given our assessment of the problem with written recommendations for solving it. Pet owners receive help in a supportive, professional, and objective manner. Our positive program includes recommendations that are practical, scientifically based, and effective.

Pet Behaviorist's Cat and Dog

Custom Behavior Plans:  Our treatment plans consist of a variety of positive and proven behavior modification and behavior management techniques.  Treatment plans are customized to your pet’s issues and may include a combination of effective behavior modification, environmental modification, positive training, stress reduction and anxiety, fear or aggression management.  We offer phone, email, and in-person follow up plans.

Positive and Effective:  Our focus is, and always has been, a positive program that will help you build a healthy relationship with your pet.  You can rest easy; our programs do not rely on aversive techniques, force methods, shock collars, or harsh punishment.  Your pet will thank you for choosing us!

Follow up plans:  Since most behavior problems did not start overnight, they may not resolve overnight.  This is why we encourage our clients to follow up with us on a regular basis.  We are available by phone, email, or in-home visits, depending on your pet’s issues and your follow up preferences.

Have you visited your vet?  A recent medical evaluation including any relevant diagnostic testing performed by your veterinarian is recommended prior to your consultation or soon after, to rule out medical conditions that may be contributing to the behavior problem.

Not in our travel area?   If you are not in our local travel area (we see clients in Northern Virginia, most of DC and parts of Maryland), we can help via our Telebehavior or Online Consultation Programs.
