The SPCA of Texas' Pet University Presents

Private Behavior Consultations


The SPCA of Texas' Pet University is proud to offer private behavior and training

consultations to help preserve and strengthen the bond between people and their pets.

Private Consultations are helpful for pets that have issues specifically related to the home,

animals that are too fearful, aggressive, or wild to come to one of our facilities

During the private training sessions you will work directly with a trainer to 

address your pet's behavior and learn techniques to modify behavior. Each follow up

will be scheduled as you and your pet are ready to progress.

NEW!! Day Training

Day training is ideal if you don't have time to train your dog or 

would like to speed up training by getting your dog trained by a professional. 

Day training takes place in your home while you are home or while you are away.

Day training begins with an Initial Consultation where training goals will be discussed 

and will end with a Transfer Session so you will learn everything that your dog has been

taught and how to continue reinforcing these behaviors. 

It is recommended that you do 2-3 training sessions per week. 

Day Training is available from 10AM - 3PM Tuesday-Friday


Cost of training

  • Initial Consultation: $125
  • 2 Sessions + Transfer Session: $255
  • 3 Sessions + Transfer Session: $340

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
