It can take several weeks to get on Sara’s calendar based on the high demand for behavioral assistance with family companions coupled with the limited number of behavior professionals qualified to handle severe behavior cases.

If you are experiencing a behavioral crisis with your dog that is likely to end in euthanasia, or you are in need of a behavioral euthanasia consultation, please have your veterinarian get in touch with Sara at to schedule an emergency consultation which she can facilitate.

If you need immediate help with your dog outside of a behavioral euthanasia consultation, I also recommend these Charlotte behavior professionals. For virtual or out-of-area consultations, you can find a list of Certified Dog Behavior Consultants on the IAABC Directory.
