Does Your Dog Have a Concerning Behavior Issue?  

Behavior problems can be frustrating and often scary, but they don't have to be. Christine can help you understand your dog's behavior by identifying what triggers it.  Once she establishes why your dog does what he or she does, Christine will create a concise plan that specifically addresses the behavior(s) so learning can take place.   

Why You Need a Certified Behavior Consultant.

Because your dog is an individual, just like you.  Each dog is different and that’s why it’s important to have a certified canine behavior specialist to assess your dog’s individual character and create a behavior and training plan just for him or her.
