Training and Behavior Modification

Behavior Consultation

A behavior consultation is the first step of the training process. In order to best help you, I need to know what's going on with your dog(s), and what you would like them to do instead. When I come to your home, I will meet you and your dog(s) and gather more history of the situation. We can talk about the issues, set up ways to manage the situation, and can then decide on training options. We will also begin some training to give you and your dog some relief from the issue. A consultation is mandatory prior to any training sessions, including sets and bundles.

90 minute consultations are $155.

Travel fee will apply outside of service area.

Training and Behavior Modification

Dog aggression, fear and phobias, tricks, manners, puppy socialization, human aggression, food/toy guarding, and more. 

In-home training

  • Day Training 

    • Have a professional train your dog even if you're at work. I'll do the heavy lifting, then show you how to continue the training and maintain the behavior(s).

  • Coaching

    • Some behavior issues may require a bit more management and practice on your end, but don't despair! I'll give you the tools, support, and guidance you need to succeed. 


Remote training

Do you require training, but can't find a qualified, force-free trainer near you? I can help you remotely via Skype or Zoom. From basic training to stranger aggression, to tricks, distance is no obstacle. We can train your dog together. 

$155 for behavior consultations
$95 for post consult training sessions

Have you adopted a rescue/shelter dog within the last two weeks? I want to assist you and your new furry friend get settled! Rescue dogs come with typical doggy behaviors that are completely workable (housetraining, chewing, jumping), but can be overwhelming. I want to lend a hand during these first crucial weeks. Every dog goes through a transition period and I'd like to help make it as smooth as possible. 

A Matter of Manners is dedicated to keeping dogs in good homes!
