Not sure which level is right for you?
We do not charge for a service until after it takes place… so nothing needs to be set in stone! We can use any level of service as a placeholder and you can discuss individual recommendations with your consultant after we have been able to meet your pet and assess the situation.

In general, the mid-level Full Consultation service is the most appropriate level for the bulk of behavior issues and is typically by far the most bang for your buck.
