Frequently Asked Questions

How is behavior counseling different from dog training?

Behavior counseling is far more than just obedience training. The work focuses on identifying the underlying causes of your pet's specific issues and creating a personalized plan to address those issues. 

Can behavior counseling address chronic issues?

Absolutely! Even if a problem has been occurring for a very long time, it's never too late to improve with concentrated behavior work. 

Will medication be prescribed to my pet?

Behavioral medications may be utilized on a case by case basis. I will work with your primary care veterinarian so your pet gets the treatment he or she needs. 

When do you offer appointments?

I am available to work with you on weekdays between the hours of 4 P.M. to 9 P.M.  and weekends between the hours of 8 A.M. and 5 P.M.

Do you provide other veterinary services?

While a physical examination may be part of a behavioral appointment, I cannot act as your primary veterinarian. As an active duty service member, I can only provide full veterinary care to the working animals and service member pets I serve in the military. However, I will work with your primary care veterinarian to ensure your pet's needs are met.
