Due to Covid-19, services have shifted a bit here at A Better Pet. The Six Pillars of Dog Training Wisdom Foundation is a 2 part program. The first session, done always by zoom and recorded for your benefit, is a 2 1/2 hour in-depth discussion laying out the science and art of positive dog training. In addition to discussion, this first session includes a coaching session with clearly outlined protocols to work on. Membership into Drop in Play (DIP) for local students is available after this first session which is a thorough, intensive deep dive that sets you up for immediate, ongoing and long lasting results. Second half of foundation training can be done in person OR by zoom and is 90 minutes in length. Clients have one full year after initial training session to do the follow up.

Get started now on the journey to learn how to become the Benevolent Leader to your dog[s].
Service begins with filling out our no obligation CONTACT US form that helps us understand the issues that are important to you.
Please note: follow up sessions can be done up to a year after initial session. You gauge what to work on to move forward in developing the relationship with your dog(s).
Cost: $400 (travel fee for clients outside of 6 mile radius & based on mileage)
Sometimes you need to hear things twice (or more often!) to hear them the first time; your dog is in a new developmental phase that confounds you, a trauma caused new problems, or you just want another go around on fine tuning things that are confounding. REFRESHER COURSES range from 1-2 hours per session (in person OR zoom) and are charged at an hourly rate of $135/hour.
Prerequisites: Private Clients Only
AGGRESSION CASES (2 session minimum)
Aggression is defined as a dog causing harm to people and/or other animals. This more severe and usually anxiety/fear based behavioral problem requires additional follow up to ensure that protocols are understood and being followed and above all, manage safety of all. Contact Us for more details on this service.
Cost: starts at $650 and includes a minimum of 3 sessions
