Most of our behavior modification and training assistance to clients is done one-on-one; with you/your family members, and your dog(s), in your own home. The first session, which is 90 minutes, of a multiple session package involves the evaluation and getting you started on our specialized training/behavior modification program for you and your dog, based on what you hope to achieve. We always explain the realistic expectations that you can hope to achieve. We have several price levels based on distance traveled and there are discounted multiple session packages available. Please call 412-766-7632 (this is a landline, no texting available!) or email for exact pricing based on your location.
