Welcome to Synergy Behavior Solutions

Synergy, the concept that when two things work together in harmony, the result is far greater than when those two things work separately. Synergy comes from optimized teamwork. Our extensive experience as well as our dedication to rewards-based training helps both you and your pet learn with compassion and happiness. Our close collaboration with the veterinary, training and shelter/rescue community and you helps us to keep everyone engaged in the improvement of your pet’s behavior. To put it simply…we help people and their pets achieve greater harmony in their lives together and we can help you too!

How can we help?

We offer a wide variety of services to address your pet’s behavioral needs…

  • Veterinary Behavior Consultations with our Animal Behaviorist and Veterinarian (Valli Parthasarathy, PhD, DVM) to help you find solutions to challenging dog and cat behavior problems and help address any medical issues which may be contributing to them
  • Stay-training for busy people who want to improve their dog’s behavior, but need extra help. Our dog trainers set the stage by helping you set up management in your dog’s life, then build behavioral foundations and show you how to help your dog keep learning afterward.
  • For dogs with reactivity issues (such as barking, lunging and getting over-excited) when seeing other dogs, we offer a whole series of classes called Reactive Rover (RR) to help your furry friend achieve calmness. Starting with our RR: Foundations class and progressing through RR: Skill Building to RR: Open Air, RR: Agility and RR: Nosework. We help you and your dog learn in a supportive environment where you can build skills and progress with professional support the whole way!
