Guys, I’m finally able to share something that I’ve been working on for the last 6 months:
I now offer individual coaching and one of my specialties is working with folks who live with DINOS!
If you live with a dog who has behavior issues, you already know that it’s really challenging. But what I’ve come to understand over the years is that even when we have professional help for our dogs – like a dog trainer and a veterinary behaviorist – it can still feel really overwhelming and lonely.
For years, people have shared with me that they feel super alone and wish they had someone guiding them through all the wackiness of living with a challenging dog. So, that’s where I come in! In these new 1-on-1 sessions, I’m bringing my 15 years of experience supporting other families right to you through a flexible combo of coaching and consulting.
What does that look like?
Each session is personalized, but generally speaking: I’ll listen to your stories, we can troubleshoot some daily routine management issues, explore ways to create healthy boundaries and self-care for you, adjust expectations, role play difficult conversations, examine tough choices that need to be made, and we’ll set some goals to help you move forward.
The sessions focus on supporting you as you care for your dog. You bring the agenda and we partner up to address it together. We’ll celebrate successes (no matter how small) and you’ll get support as you face challenges.
Sometimes things aren’t getting any better and we have really hard choices to make. I’m there for all the hard decisions that need to be made too.
I never offer dog training, medical, or behavioral advice.
That’s not my area expertise. I’m there to support the work those professionals are doing with your dogs. So if you’re just starting out and your dog needs some serious training/behavior help – I want you to use your resources to meet with the pros that can assist your dog first, ok?
Right now, I offer two different packages: Monthly Support and Seasonal Support, which you can learn more about here.
If you’re interested in either package, all you need to do is schedule a free 30 minute consultation call with me to learn more about coaching and decide if it’s the right choice for you (it’s ok if it’s not – that’s what the call is there for!).
And if you’re a trainer or vet behaviorist that would like more info for your clients, just shout. I have PDFs!
Team DINOS (that’s you guys), I’m really looking forward to supporting you in this way, so don’t be shy, ok? I’m here to help.
