How to use Online Coaching


Similar to "human" counseling, it is important to gather information to best support your dog's behavior modification needs and well-being. Training, learning and behavior adjustment takes time, practice and a positive attitude.   


After the initial Canine Behavior Intake (assessment) is filled out and emailed, you will be informed if this is an effective option for you and your dog. Clarification typically takes 2-4 days after the initial Canine Behavior Intake. Oftentimes, the intake is the first step of awareness and change happens.


A detailed behavior summary will be emailed within 5-days. Advise will be given during the sessions to begin - immediately.       


Email coaching is set up in 30, 45 or 1-hour sessions. Telephone Advising is an option and set up the same way. A convenient time is arranged to focus on you and your dog.  


Taking a first, in the moment step, is empowering.  If this is for you ... journey below and let’s begin the process together ...

DT Behavior Counseling Informational Brochure



Coaching can help you resolve issues like housetraining, barking, lunging, mouthing, jumping, resource guarding, adolescent issues, fears and phobias, separation anxiety, resource guarding, multiple dogs and dog to cat. I will honestly let you know if I can help online or whether this requires in-person coaching as a more effective, efficient and safe approach for you, your family and dog(s).


My goal and approach is to to safely modify your dog’s behavior in a straight-forward, positive and non-confrontational way - at a distance. With over 20 years of behavioral experience (dogs and people), I can offer an intuitive, instinctual and experienced behavior modification plan.    


There are obvious limitations. Some behaviors may too ingrained, habitual and/or reactive to be modified without personal, long-term guidance, Veterinary intervention and medication. Video may be required to observe behaviors. For a list of behavior consultants in your area refer to the International Association of Animal Behavior Consultants or Certified Professional Dog Trainers.


Oftentimes, a small intuitive change can make a big difference. It requires an open-mind and commitment from you (and others) who come in contact with your dog, to learn new ways of teaching and communicating. Embracing change requires patience, compassion and a willingness to listen and practice daily.

This may be different from what you are use too. It may enlighten your life too.


Join me in a deep nose-to-navel breath, imagining your private refuge, where you and your dog can relax, play and simply be without stress for a few moments ... Breathing in for 4-8 seconds ... Holding for 4-8 ... Slowly Exhaling for 4-8 breaths.

  

Give yourself permission to take 10-minutes a day to quiet your mind and breathe (brain yoga). Let thoughts flow. If you get stuck, create a phrase to say to yourself like “drop it” or “stop” – letting it go to the universe. 10-minutes a day can lower your stress level and extend your and your dog’s life.

 

As a professional, it is my responsibility to offer realistic skills and resources to assist you in creating positive change for your puppy/dog's education and well-being.
