Julie Russell has been providing quality pet care to Seattle since 2010 and cares for your pets as her own.
Julie holds a BS in psychology from Marquette University, an MS in behavioral science from UW-Madison & a certificate in applied animal behavior from the University of Washington.
She enjoys helping others to better understand, care for and communicate with their pets. She uses positive, science based methods and believes training should always be a fun experience for your dog.
Our mission is to help dogs live healthier, happier lives. We offer individual walks, group adventure outings and individual behavioral consultations.
Your dog will run, play and socialize at a local off-leash park. We most frequently visit Magnuson, but sometimes Northacres or Woodland parks.
3 days a week, a special outing is offered for small dogs only. This offering is an excellent confidence builder for smaller dogs and allows them an opportunity to let loose in the company of same sized friends.
A 30 minute walk in your neighborhood will be catered to your dogs needs. Some walks are for exercise, others for sniffing and exploring and others for helping with training.
This longer option is great for dogs who need more exercise or who just really like to get out and explore.
Julie specializes in behavioral treatments for dogs with leash reactivity, dog aggression, human aggression and fear based behaviors
This usually lasts 1.5 to 2 hours. We will discuss your dogs history, behavior, personality and determine what goals we'd like to achieve.
After the initial consultation, you will receive a detailed treatment plan and unlimited phone support to discuss and implement the treatment.
Follow-up visits will be for the purpose of helping you and your dog reach your treatment goals.
Once training has begun, you can call anytime to discuss any concerns or questions you may have.
