The Virtual Consultation
...What is it?
It is the very first meeting that you will have with the Smart Bitches.
It is required to utilize either our private Virtual Training or In-Person Training.
There are two types: The Standard Consultation and The Specialty Consultation.
$150 | 60 minutes
Standard Consultation for minor issues.
*Required for private Virtual or In-Person Training.
$200 | 90 minutes
*Required for private Virtual or In-Person Training
Both Consultations consist of two parts:
An orientation to Smart Bitch, our training methods, details on why your dog may be behaving the way they are and more... in video format! This video will be sent directly to you prior to your live meeting. The video is a requirement and is to be watched before:
Your 60 or 90 minute live online meeting with us! During this meeting we will ask questions and we will answer any and all questions you may have. We set you up for the future training that you will purchase.
Our Consultation is also known as 'The Brain Melt'. It is our way of determining what is going on with your dog... So, TELL US EVERYTHING. And don't hold back. Invite family (everyone involved with the dog's life) to be a part of the call!
After we ask you a few targeted questions, the long awaited explanation will begin. We'll teach you everything you need to know about what's going on in your dog's head and how to make the bad behavior go away!
Important: The 'type' of Consultation that you will receive will be chosen for you after your form is submitted. Read more about common issues we Consult about and help fix with training packages, below.
...What behavioral issues do y'all typically work with?
Consultations are PERFECT for peculiar dogs with problems that include:
Dog to Dog Aggression
Dog to People Aggression
Dog to Children/Toddler/Baby Aggression
Resource Guarding (Object Aggression)
Fearfulness & Anxiety
....seriously the list is endless. We can work with it all!
Advanced behavioral problems and/or multiple-dog homes require the Specialty Consultation. Advanced behavioral problems can include, but aren't limited to: Separation Anxiety, Fearfulness & Anxiety, Dog to Dog Aggression, (Dog) Sibling Aggression which may or may not include a history of fighting, Dog to other pet animal aggression, and MORE.
Specialty Consultations are our MOST POPULAR Consultations.
The 'type' of Consultation that you will receive will be chosen for you after your form is submitted.
...Why 'virtual'? what are the benefits to a virtual consult?
The truth is, The Virtual/Online Consultation is even more ideal than a traditional in-person consultation in many ways! For one, you get to skip that awkward commotion that happens when a stranger visits your home. That means that the moment your call begins, we are 100% focused on you! Second, most dogs exhibit more than one of the behavioral problems listed above....and we don't actually need to SEE any of it! No need to stress your dog out for no reason! Between the both of us, we have enough experience and qualifications under our belts to provide you with clear guidance to help you with all of the problems you are experiencing.
Fun fact: Great dog training for rehabilitation purposes should NEVER look like dog training, per say. If a dog is stressed out, you're doing it wrong! We don't need to see the symptoms to treat the problem.
Think of it this way: A psychologist doesn't bad mouth their client before advising.....why should dog training be any different? They just help.
We. Just. Help.
Other Benefits include:
Consult with BOTH trainers at the same time.
Same high quality training expertise at your finger tips.
Ability to discuss complex behavioral issues with no distractions!
Consulting in your pajamas! You don't have to get dressed if you don't want to.
If you call in from a desktop or laptop device, you can record the end of the session (when we recap everything!) as a video reference for you to remember key discussion points and adjustments advised by the trainers to improve quality of life.
... so what do i need?
Use what you have! We will need to be able to see and hear you, and you will need to be able to see and hear us. To make that happen, you'll need:
A stable internet connection
A laptop/ desktop computer with a webcam, microphone, & speakers/headphones!
Or a mobile device (smartphone or tablet)
A Zoom Account (don't worry, sign up is easy, FREE, and we'll walk you through the process.
& dog related questions!
The Consultation is always required before you can gain access to our other private services like Digital D.I.Y. Coaching, In Person D.I.Y. Coaching, and In Person S.M.A.R.T. Sessions. We gotta know what we're working with, first.
The Consultation is a stand-alone service. It is treated as a single session, and you are welcome to contact us if you just need quick advice for the issues you are experiencing.
However, it is intended to be the first part of a training plan, with the second part being a private training package. Depending on the volume of inquiries we are receiving, clients that purchase the Consult with the intention of buying a private training package will be given priority.
