Sliding scale is a tool that allows for a service to be obtained at multiple price points based on the circumstances of the purchaser.
Sliding scale represents the idea that financial means should not be the determining factor in whether or not someone can access services.

Practitioners deserve to be paid and clients deserve quality services which also recognize the multiple realities of economic access and privilege that exist. By honoring the sliding scale we support each other and the dogs we all love. I do not ask for income verification, I trust you to be honest. I do ask that you consider this is my livelihood, the way I make a living, helping you do the very best you can for your beloved pet.

The Standard Price:
The Standard Fee reflects the true cost of the service. If you have access to financial security, own property or have personal savings, you would not traditionally qualify for sliding scale services. If you are able to pay for "wants" and spend little time worried about securing necessities in your life, this price is for you.
First Session $100 plus tax
Follow up visits $50 plus tax
(Home visits add $15; Any credit card payments add standard processing fee)

The Midlevel Price:
If you are struggling to conquer debt or build savings or move away from paycheck to paycheck living but have access to steady income and are not spending most of your time thinking about meeting basic needs such as food, shelter, medical care, child care, etc., this price is for you.
First Session $75 plus tax

Follow up visits $40 plus tax
(Home visits add $15; Any credit card payments add standard processing fee)


The Lowest Price:

If you struggle to maintain access to needs such as health care, housing, food, child care, are living paycheck to paycheck or are in significant debt, this price is for you. If this price is still prohibitive please get in touch with me so that we can come up with a workable solution together.
First Session $50 plus tax

Follow up visits $25 plus tax

(Home visits add $15; Any credit card payments add standard processing fee)

Keeping it simple:

These fees are for all consults whether in-person or long distance via phone and email, although distance consults paid with credit card are subject to the addition of the standard credit card processing fee. Long distance sessions include summary notes, research, and essences, just like in person.

Here's what you can expect from Modern Dog:

1st Session: approximately 90 minutes (for one dog's needs), may includes custom flower essence formulating (flower essence itself is additional); other products are additional 

Follow-Up or *Single Service Sessions: 45-60 minutes ($1/minute over 60 minutes). Any credit card payments add standard processing fee.


*Single Service Cold Laser Sessions: $40 per session ($90 for prepaid 3-package). Any credit card payments add standard processing fee.


* Single-service consultations are for first-time clients who want very limited services such as help with navigating the results of a food sensitivity test, cold laser treatment only, food prep guidance, or a flower essence-only phone session. I'll offer you this option if it's applicable.

Refills of flower essences or other products are additional. Any mailing/shipping of products from Modern Dog are subject to postage charges.

Payment is accepted at the time of service via exact cash (I have no change), check, or Square for Credit Cards (credit card add standard credit card processing fee).

Times noted above only reference time with you, so keep in mind that I’m spending additional time outside of our session on custom formulating/researching for your individual dog.


Thank you to Califia Collective and The Art of Dog for the inspiration and encouragement to implement the Sliding Scale.
