Rates and Services:
$180 for a Consultation - Consultations/assessments last 90 minutes. This is where I meet you and the pup to see how you interact together and assess his/her personality. I'll show you some skills and we will go for a short walk as well so that I can see what you/they need most. From there I will figure out the best methods to work with for you and your dog, and spend the last 15 minutes going over my personalized recommendations.
$120/hr for Follow-up Sessions - Training is an ongoing process, but I wait at least a week between sessions (depending on the dog's needs) so that you have time to work on the skills with your pup. The main focus is to get you comfortable with the commands and training until you no longer need me. Some clients are only with me for a month or two, some have been with me for almost a year, but I will always be open and honest with you about what I think your pup needs and when I think you are ready to take over on your own.
$60/hr for One-on-One Walks - Dogs have a tendency to act differently away from their pawrents, so solo sessions give me a chance to bond with the dog and try a variety of methods to see what they respond to best when apart from the owner. As a bonus, these walks can help speed up the training process, and have shown to be integral for figuring out underlying issues with certain types of dogs. Solo sessions are reserved for ongoing training clients and do not take the place of a regularly scheduled walker.
$400 Introduction Package - Consists of one 90-min consultation and two 1-hour follow up sessions, and includes weekly email check-ins and support (more if needed), a mini training guide, access to all of my knowledge, resources, and personalized recommendations for gear, treats, toys, etc. For the package, I require a 50% deposit via Venmo to hold the consultation spot and the rest is due at the end of the first session. Both the deposit and the rest of the package payment are non-refundable to create accountability and follow through. Discounted, customized packages available for ongoing work beyond the introduction to training.
$15/each for Follow-up Emails - session recap, homework, resources, etc.
$45/30 min Breed/er Counseling - virtual or phone call to discuss the best breed to fit your lifestyle and questions to ask breeders to determine if you're purchasing from an ethical one

These rates are for one dog per household. Additional dogs cost extra.
***I do work with aggressive dogs with bite history and more severe behavioral issues on a case by case basis, to be determined at the end of the consultation. Please be advised that aggressive cases require an additional signed waiver and package of sessions to be purchased in advance.
Cat/Pet visits are $25 per 30 minute visit. I haven't forgotten our feline and exotic pet friends! This includes feeding, scooping litter/cleanup, play time, snuggles, and whatever else your pet needs to make him/her comfortable while you're away. Please note, there is an additional fee of $5 per visit during weekends and holidays and availability is limited to certain areas of Crown Heights, Bedstuy, Prospect Heights and Lefferts Gardens.
