Consults and Training

During a behavior consult, Mary will take a detailed history so that an accurate assessment can be made. She'll identify contributing factors and explain why your pet is exhibiting an unwanted behavior. Sessions result in a customized program, working knowledge of how to implement a training plan, and a written assessment sent to your veterinarian.

Behavior Consults

Mary can help you with a number of your pet's issues using positive, scientific training methods.

  • Aggression towards people or animals in public
  • Aggression towards family, visitors, or other pets
  • House training and litter box problems
  • Barking, destruction, and escape
  • Home alone & separation problems
  • Fears, phobias, and anxiety
  • Other problem behaviors

Virtual Consults

In March 2020 as the world shut down I began offering virtual consults via Zoom. While initially skeptical, I quickly found them to be just as effective as in-person consults and a great option for distant clients and those who work better in their own home. I've seen virtual clients all across the US, Europe, and Africa.
