*Some reactivity and fear issues require a more intensive program through a veterinary behaviorist. Because of this, A $50 in-home evaluation is required before starting the program to determine if this program is right for you and your dog. If you continue with the program, this fee will be incorporated into the total package fee.
**For dogs with a bite or fight history, muzzle training is required.
