Behavior Wellness and Cooperative Skills

Behavioral health is a huge component of the overall well-being of our pets and our relationships with them. If you are struggling with a dog who is displaying unwanted behavior, schedule a Behavior Consult.During your consult, you will be able to assess what may be causing or maintaining your dog’s problem behavior. Learn to work through simple exercises to increase likelihood of desired behavior in place of those you want to discourage. Whether your dog is fearful and retreats or boisterous and loud, all behavior serves a purpose to your dog. Help your dog navigate difficult situations with confidence and calm so you can enjoy your dog at home and in public.


To schedule a Behavior Consult or Private Training, send email to: sharon@fortheloveofdogs.pet

Please include vital information on what you would like to work on and what days and times you would be available to meet.

Maybe you have trained skills but they are not reliable or only work when there are not distractions. Spend your training time and money to specifically meet your personal needs. Progress at your own pace and schedule lessons around your current schedule.


Private Training $85/session

Once you have completed your initial Behavior Consult, follow up lessons may be scheduled at your own pace to ensure steady progress through your new training plan.
