During the Covid-19 crisis, Better Together Animal Training is taking every precaution to follow CDC guidelines to limit exposure. Most initial behavior consultations can be conducted online via zoom (preferred) or other software such as Skype or Facetime. A thorough behavior profile can be completed, your animal's behavior can be observed and Cari can guide you through some initial management recommendations and training exercises as appropriate. 

There are many benefits to online consultations. If your dog displays fearful or aggressive behavior in response to unfamiliar people entering your home, your initial remote consultation appointment may be less stressful for both you and your animal and the focus can be put on providing a detailed behavioral history of your animal. Platforms like Zoom also allow for easy recording of important moments during your training session that you can review at a later time. Depending on the behavior in question, a phone consultation may also be appropriate. 

In-person follow up dog training sessions are possible. Follow up training sessions can also happen in-person by appointment with Cari at 528 N Main St, Oshkosh, WI at the Ideal Dog training studio space. Weather permitting, Cari can meet with you socially distanced for outdoor appointments.

Consultations and follow up training sessions are billed at $95/hr. Discounts available to clients who book and prepay 3+ sessions up front. Contact Cari to set up an initial consultation.
