Behavior Consulting

At Training Wheels we specialize in expert coaching to

help  you improve your dog's fear, reactivity, and aggression but

our trainers are also skilled with basic manners and puppy behaviors.

 

 

 

ONE HOUR CONSULTATION/LESSON

$140 On Site or Video Conference

$175 In Home

Your trainer will:

  • Learn about your dog's behavior and your goals

  • Coach you through implementing management strategies to prevent unwanted behaviors

  • Map out a detailed training plan to help change your dog’s behavior moving forward

  • Teach you exercises to practice with your dog to implement these changes

  • Provide a detailed written summary and support via e-mail and phone

Please note that each lesson builds on the last. Follow-ups are recommended for optimal results and training is most effective if lessons are spaced to give you adequate time to practice with your dog.

MY FIRST PUPPY (Extended Lesson)

$200 On Site

If you've never had a puppy (or it's been a while!) and you have TONS of questions be sure we schedule an extended (90 minute) initial lesson! Your trainer will get you started with tips to address house training, puppy biting and early socialization. We'll talk about how dogs learn and how to begin teaching your pup the most useful skills.

 

Follow-up lessons are one hour and $140. 

COURT-ORDERED EVALUATION

(1hr in-person meeting plus time allocated to complete report)

$200 On Site

Your trainer will gather a detailed history of your dog's behavior, make some immediate recommendations and complete a written report you may submit to the court. 

 

The goal of this appointment isn't to assign blame but rather to help you better understand your dog's behavior and limitations as well implement a plan to keep your dog and the community safe.

 

Evaluations take place at our facility but this is not a test and we will not separate you from your dog. We will never intentionally elicit negative reactions from your dog or cause unnecessary stress. Dogs with more significant human-directed aggression will be kept physically separated from the trainer by a fence or gate.

 

Your trainer will need a copy of the police/animal control incident report and relevant documentation from the court in order to complete an unbiased written evaluation. Please forward this to us at info@trainingwheels.dog prior to your appointment. 

 

COURT-ORDERED TRAINING

Similar to community service, judges occasionally require a guardian to complete training to improve their dog's behavior. See "One Hour Consultation" above for more details.
