Behavior Consultation

Please contact our behavior helpline if interested in a behavior consultation: 804-643-7722 or

Consultations are intended for behavior problems in both dogs and cats. These are issues that cannot be covered in a group class and may include aggression, reactivity, fearfulness, housetraining, scratching, litter box issues and an array of other problems. For individual help with basic manners, please see private lessons.

Pets adopted from the Richmond SPCA within six months may have up to three free consults. Pets adopted from the Richmond SPCA at any time will have their first consult for free.

After you have discussed your training goals with one of our trainers, please submit your payment below. Refunds will not be given for cancellations with less than 24 hours notice. All consultations for cats are virtual. Dog consultations can be done both virtually and at our training center. We are not able to offer in-home consultations at this time.
