Training & Scheduling

Behavior Consultations and In-Home Training


Melissa currently sees private clients on Saturdays only. As a result, she books up several weeks in advance.
Contact her for pricing and availability.

If she cannot see you as soon as you would like, she will refer you to capable, qualified trainers, behavior consultants or veterinary behaviorists as indicated here. She takes training very seriously and will personally make sure you get the qualified, responsible help you require for your dog.

After you have scheduled an appointment with Melissa, you can visit here to make your deposit.  A deposit is required to hold all appointments. Due to recent appointments canceled, and Melissa’s tight schedule through the summer, a 50% deposit is required to hold all in-home appointments.

If the appointment is canceled within 48 hours of your scheduled appointment, the 50% deposit is not refunded.

If you elect to pay in full in advance of your appointment and need to cancel or reschedule, you will be refunded 50% if it’s within a 48-hour window (refund in full outside of the 48-hour window).
