As President of Canine Behavior Counseling I am dedicated to helping dog owners with problem dogs. Dogs that are anxious, fearful, aggressive, dominant, or simply undisciplined are those that I can help. My training programs encompass puppy socialization, obedience training, specialty and aggression classes and personalized one-to-one counseling. I seek to achieve a balanced state of mind and a healthy relationship between the dog and its owners. It is important for me to help dog owners understand their dog’s needs. By providing the proper information and training, the relationship between dog and owner will be a happy, joyful and balanced one.

Personalized one-to-one counseling sessions can be scheduled, and typically cost $185 per one-hour session, if you travel to me, or $150 if I need to travel to your home.

Bulk consultation packages are available in either 3 or 5 one-hour sessions. A three-session package is $395 and a five-session package is $625. These packages are perfect for dogs that exhibit behaviors such as:

  • aggression issues
  • territorial issues
  • leash lunging

Working with your dog on these issues throughout multiple training sessions will help set him up for success!

Bite Risk Assessment is performed in Judy’s office and is for dogs who have bitten humans or dogs where extreme damage has been done. Extreme is defined as a dog who needed hospitalization or a human who received three or more punctures.  
Upon collection of a history, Judy will assess the dog’s temperament using the Clothier Animal Response Assessment Tool. Judy will then evaluate the dog’s sociability with familiar people, sociability with unfamiliar people, social tolerance, resource guarding,  dog-to-dog relationship (when applicable). The dog’s arousal and resiliency will be scored to support Judy’s recommendations and over all conclusion.

Pet Evaluation Consultations offered for those families in search of adopting a dog that will be a good match for their family dynamics.  Temperament assessment includes body handling, guarding, fears, phobias, aggression towards humans, children, dogs and cats.  Prices depend on travel time, but will be approximately $250.
