Dr. Lindsay Parenti provides behavioral consultations and training services in the Morgantown, WV community. The following services are available to families living within 60 miles of Morgantown.
Services are arranged in the context of 4 in-home visits scheduled across approximately 8 weeks. Contact us to schedule an appointment.
Behavior Assessment and Intervention ($425.00 plus travel fee*)
*This service includes behavior problem assessment and treatment, basic obedience, service and therapy dog evaluation and training as needed.
Common dog behavior problems include aggression toward people or animals, fearful behavior, separation anxiety, house soiling, excessive barking, jumping, resource guarding, pulling on leash, reactivity, thunderstorm phobias, and general noncompliance. Common cat behavior problems include house soiling, fearful behavior, aggression between resident cats or toward humans, and anxious behavior including ingestion of foreign objects, overgrooming, and repetitive behavior.
We will conduct a behavioral history assessment and observe your pet, then design an individually tailored behavior plan for you and your family to implement. Across sessions, our goal is to help pet owners understand the cause of their pet's behavior problem and give owners the tools they need to address it.
For those owners who learn best with ongoing coaching and long-term support, or for those behavior problems that typically require more extensive follow-up, an extended series of six sessions is recommended ($525.00 plus travel fee*).
* A travel fee of $0.50 per driving mile round-trip is added for each in-home session. Payment can be made by cash or check and is due in full at the first session. A 10% discount on this service is available to United States veterans.
