Private Coaching for Canine Wellness

Suzanne helps dogs and humans live their best lives together by identifying and addressing the needs of both the dog and the human. Canine wellness is training, behavior modification, enrichment, and fitness combined in one package. Through this process, Suzanne answers questions such as

  • Why does my dog do that?
  • Can I train my dog to do this instead?
  • How do I train my dog to do this?
  • How can I accommodate my dog’s need to do that?
  • Why is my dog afraid of that person/place/dog/thing?
  • And much more!

Be prepared for this process to be as much about coaching you as training your dog!

Suzanne trains dogs using a reward-based approach and uses behavior modification methods that comply with the humane hierarchy. Private coaching can take place in person if you live in or near Corvallis, OR, or virtually otherwise.

Start with an Evaluation

All private coaching for canine wellness starts with an evaluation. During this evaluation, we will

  • set goals for your dog and you
  • determine current progress toward those goals
  • recognize obstacles to reaching those goals
  • review your dog’s history
  • discuss your history with your dog
  • implement management and prevention solutions to provide immediate relief to behavior challenges
  • formulate a plan and a projected timeline for meeting goals.

You can expect to get started on training during your evaluation!

Investment: $165 for 90 minutes

Implement the Plan

Your canine wellness plan may include a combination of

  • training and communication to teach your dog new skills
  • behavior modification to manage and address any fears or anxieties
  • breed- and dog-specific enrichment essential for high quality of dog life
  • fitness and exercise to enable your dog to participate fully in training and in life

The timeline depends heavily on a combination of your goals, current progress toward those goals, your dog’s history, your commitment to improving that relationship, and more.

We can vary the amount and frequency of direct contact you have with Suzanne depending on the plan we formulate and your comfort level and skills to implement that plan. Options include individual sessions, a package of multiple sessions, or a package of multiple sessions with online support between sessions.
