Video / Phone Consultations


Do you live out of the area or prefer to work with a qualified professional by video or phone? Phone and video appointments are scheduled in advance and are billed at the time of the appointment. We offer video appointments by Zoom or on Facebook. It is the client’s responsibility to contact the Pawsitive Directions office at our scheduled time. Handouts and instructions are sent by mail after our appointment.

If your dog is shy or aggressive it may be better to schedule our first appointment by video. Video appointments can reduce the stress for your dog by not having the distraction of a stranger in their presence. For some dogs it can be helpful for me to give you exercises to work on prior to meeting in person.
