Mindful Mutz Training and Behavior Consulting

Better understand your dog as an individual but also as a species (“The Dog”) how your relationship & daily interaction with him may be effecting his behavior, as well as factors such as breed tendencies, environmental components, diet (yes diet can effect behavior!), your dogs ability to deal with stress & regulate his emotional response, plus other important factors that can be easily overlooked, yet play a vital role in the experience your dog may be having.
It is not uncommon for us to see a client & dog for a Behavior Consultation, and within the comprehensive two hour appointment, begin to find some resolution & management strategies to help reduce the likelihood of a recurrence of the problem. During these appointments we work to set the foundational groundwork towards building a solid plan to help resolve the problem at hand. We are fully present mentally as well as emotionally during these often emotionally straining situations and will provide support, honesty & a professional assessment & prognosis to each and every client we work with.

We are always willing to discuss details & answer questions before scheduling an appointment. Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
