Behavior Consultations


sometimes you just need a helping hand...

Behavior consultations address a wide range of behavior problems, including inappropriate jumping, leash-pulling, play biting, resource guarding, and separation anxiety.

Trainer Tanja Owe, who has an M.S. in Companion Animal Behavior Analysis & Counseling, uses a science-based approach to modify problem behavior. Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) involves identifying the function of the behavior.  It also involves identifying and modifying the antecedents (i.e. triggers), environment, and/or consequences that help maintain that behavior.

Consultations, which involve one-on-one training, can take place in the classroom, in Greenbelt Park, or in your home.  Consultations are $150 and include:

  • 2 one-on-one sessions (60 minutes each);

  • 1 written report containing recommendations and a training plan; and

  • long-term email support.
