Phone Consultations for Dog or Cat Concerns

Not living nearby? Too busy? A phone consultation for your dog or cat’s behavior solves the distance problem.

Phone consultations are for pet owners with a specific issue or concern. They’re perfect for situations where…

  • … your dog lunges at other dogs on walks, and you’ve finally gotten fed up of your arm being yanked.
  • …your cat urinates somewhere else than where it’s supposed to – the litter box!
  • …your dog barks incessantly when you’re away at work… and the neighbors are complaining.

A phone consultation can be just the place to get the fast help you need. You’ll be able to understand the issue and what’s involved in helping correct your pet’s behavior, all from the comfort of your home and at a time that works best for you.

Here’s how phone consultations work:

You’ll complete a comprehensive questionnaire to help us assess the situation and your pet’s behavior.

Then you and Elise will join together on a one-hour consultation call to discuss the situation, your pet’s history and other details. These calls are always supportive and non-judgmental, and Elise listens to your concerns so she can provide you with solid training advice and the solutions you need.

You’ll learn about different training solution options available to you and your pet, and you’ll also receive explanations about how each might impact your family in terms of time, cost and change. This lets you and your family make an informed, educated decision about how you want to proceed.

You’ll receive a summary of the call via email as well, so you have a handy reference of what to do and how to do it, any time you need it.

In many cases, you and your family will have to make some lifestyle changes to help correct your pet’s behavior and restore harmony to your home.

So to help you implement these changes and to answer any additional questions, you’ll receive a second one-hour follow-up consultation call with Elise to go over all the how-tos, so you’re ready to take action.

Phone consultations are billed at Elise’s hourly rate, which is $104/hour. Initial consultations are no more than 2 hours and the fee is $208, follow-ups are 1 hour.  It’s the next best thing to sitting down with Elise in person.
