A behaviour consultation for any problem generally lasts about two to three hours in your home.
During this time I will teach you all the techniques needed to address your dog’s particular issues. I will assess your dog and how you both currently interact inside your home. I will then demonstrate all the required training inside the home and following this, out on a walk or in the park until I’m confident that you’re ready to implement the techniques alone.
The consultation includes:
- 2-3 hour consultation, or for as long as it takes, depending on the dog.
- A personalised dog training plan that you can use as a reminder and future guide.
- Ongoing free telephone support and advice for the life of your dog for all of the issues covered in the consultation.
I deal with all types of dog training and behavioural issues, including:
• training to help rescue dogs settle into new homes • new puppy training • general sits, downs, stays • walking properly on the lead • aggression towards people or other dogs • integrate dogs and babies/kids, or prepare for a newborn • integrate new puppy/dog into home of existing dog • multi-dog households • integrate new puppy/dog into home of existing cat • separation anxiety • fears and phobias • attention/territorial/fear barking • re-call training • chasing bikes/joggers • toilet training • jumping up on people • fear of groomers • fear of cars • over-excitability around guests • over-excitability around dogs out on a walk/park • breeding and puppy-raising advice for new breeders
Above are the main reasons people contact me, but I also deal with unique problems. So, if you are experiencing a behaviour that you would like help with and think it is unusual, please get in touch, even if it’s only to put your mind at ease.
A behavioural consultation is completely different from dog training classes or a dog training course. In dog training classes, you generally learn dog training related lessons, such as: sit, stay, walking to heel, recall etc. A behaviour consultation from a qualified dog behaviourist is a behaviour modification session that is tailored specifically for your dog.
The cost of the consultation is £250.
