    • Day Training - Private tutoring when you're home or away. It is "board and train" without the "board." This is great for new puppies. These programs are $400/week with a two-week minimum for one dog. Learn more HERE.
       
  • BEHAVIOR CONSULTING. If you have a behavior concern with your dog, please visit with your veterinarian first, especially if you've seen sudden changes in your dog's behavior. After you know for certain your dog is healthy physically, call Pupstart.
    I do work with anxious, nervous, destructive, fearful, or shy dogs.

    In cases where your dog has repeatedly shown threatening behavior or has bitten people or injured other animals, I must have a referral from your veterinarian. Pupstart accepts aggression and bite cases on a limited basis. The charge is $100-$150 per hour for an initial consult. Addressing a behavior problem will always require more than one session. Click HERE to learn more.

     
  • Payment is due at time of service via cash, check with photo ID, or credit card. 

If you need help with house training your new puppy or dog, usually one visit is all that you'll need. However, long-standing potty problems may require the initial consult and at least one follow-up visit. A house training visit provides you a plan to implement immediately to make your house mess-free as quickly as possible. Free follow-up support is included. This is billed at $80/hour. 

PHONE CONSULTATIONS

Pupstart offers long-distance phone consults for $45 per half-hour. If there is a concern with your dog that cannot be addressed adequately over the phone, every attempt will be made to locate a qualified trainer or behavior counselor near you. Payment in advance is required via check or credit card.

Become an educated consumer when it comes to choosing reputable dog breeders, rescue groups or animal shelters to find your next dog. Pupstart can assist you in preparing yourself to make the best decision to assure the healthiest, most behaviorally sound pet for your family. A Pet Selection Consult is billed at $40/hour due at time of service. Payment is accepted via cash, check with photo ID or credit card.
