All family members over the age of eight should attend the consultation. If you are working with a trainer they are also welcome to attend. Young children, who may not be able to focus for an hour, should not attend. The consultation will be approximately one hour. If your pet is on a limited diet due to health concerns, please have acceptable treats and a toy they really love readily available.
Many problems may need follow up consultations. Addition follow-up consultations can be scheduled for 30 or 60 minutes.
If at any time you are having trouble with the handouts or instructions please call and leave a message for Dr. Mathis. She will get back to you as soon as possible.
