    During your initial consultation you are expected to be present to review your intake form with the practitioner however we do separate pets from their owners thereafter. During your initial consultation, we will provide you with a brief tour of our facility. We have found a great amount of success in terms of being able to bond with your pet without their owner present. Furthermore, our facility isn’t large enough to facilitate multiple dogs and their owners, this can be distracting to other patients during their session. Lastly, we enjoy providing pictures and videos of your pet during their rehab session so you may see how well they are doing!
