Consulting fees are a flat rate of $100.00 per hour (1 hour minimum, charged in 15 minute increments after the first hour).

The first step is always to take your dog to a veterinarian and have a full physical and blood workup.  This is important because if they're in pain or have health issues, this could certainly be affecting the way they're behaving.  Health issues need to be ruled out before we start to look at other things.

The second step is a telephone conversation to discuss the challenges you're having with your dog @ $50.00 flat rate.

The third step is an in-home visit to get to know you, your family, and your dog; this usually takes +/- 2 hours.

Then we can start working together on a behaviour change plan.

  • No one sincerely interested in learning about professional dog training will be turned away for financial reasons.
  • Senior's (65 and older) receive a 25% discount.

Fees can be prepaid via e-transfer to smilingpupconsulting@gmail.com, or cash at the time of home consult.
