Dog Behaviour & Training
Expert behaviour change for you and your dog
Jade will visit you and your dog in your home, take a functional assessment of behaviour, environment, lifestyle and discuss problems you are experiencing. She will work with you to create a behaviour program, tailored to suit your individual circumstances.
The initial consultation takes anywhere up to 2 hours which will include advice and practical training, a full written behaviour report, management and training programs. Email and telephone support is available.
Initial behaviour consult – $300
(allow 60-90 minutes)
Follow up session – $140 per hour
****Currently sessions are online only (Zoom or Skype) due to Covid-19.****
Travel expenses based on mileage are applicable for in-home visits outside of the Yass Valley and Canberra region. Due to an increase in no-shows during the time of COVID, half of the consult fee will be due at time of booking. Thank you for your consideration of other pet carers who would like that appointment time.

“Helped me with my newly adopted shelter dog when I was at my wit’s end. Helped me understand what was happening and why, and what to do next for the result we wanted. Many years on, the good foundations have helped form a great relationship with my now stressfree dog.”
