Behavior Consults

Helping you with your cat or dog


During a behavior consult, Mary will take a detailed history so that an accurate assessment can be made. She'll identify contributing factors and explain why your pet is exhibiting an unwanted behavior. Sessions result in a customized program, working knowledge of how to implement a training plan, and a written assessment sent to your veterinarian.

Any equipment recommended during an online video consult can be purchased online or hand-delivered for clients within a certain distance from Gaithersburg, MD.
