The consultation is an information-gathering and discussion session.

The consultation is an information-gathering and discussion session. If there are behavioral issues of concern, we may attempt to observe the problem behavior(s) before making an assessment. However, this is not mandatory, and often not needed- we don’t need to stress a dog and see a dog bite in order to know he bites! We will discuss training goals and aim to formulate an appropriate plan of action for the dog and the household. If time permits, we can dive into working with the dog and learning on our feet with some basics. Owners will leave a consultation with clear knowledge of what behaviors they need to start practicing, what they should stop doing, and what they’re doing right and should continue.

The Details

Location: In your home

Duration: 1-1.5hrs

Who: It is best to have all primary caretakers present for the consultation.

What to prepare

  • Try to ensure your dog has eliminated before the meeting, so we aren’t worried about an accident occurring
  • Since a consult is more about us talking, it’s best if your dog is a little tired before we meet
  • If you have a chew toy or puzzle toy that can be stuffed with food, save this for the consultation appointment so your dog can have a project while we speak

For behavior modification

  • We will email you a behavior assessment form. Please have this completed and returned to us as soon as possible.
  • For our safety, we may request that your dog is gated, crated, muzzled, or leashed when we enter.

Best trainer! Patient, dedicated, and reachable.

Trainers I worked with in the past were never available when i needed it or had a question. Not Justis, she is prompt and extremely courteous. She transformed my terrier rescue, Maxwell, from a leash reactive terror (barking and lunging at dogs big and small) to an attentive student, who gets complimented on his manners and can pass dogs and greet a dog when appropriate. Justis creates a plan for you and your dog. Training is work, so be prepared to do your homework. Maxwell wouldn’t be where he is today without Raise the Woof!
