What is it for?
All dogs are highly individual, even those from the same breed. Their life experiences, environment and individual temperaments will affect the way that they deal with certain situations. Some dogs are better at dealing with these and some dogs struggle – just like us. For those that struggle, sometimes a small issue can get seemingly out of hand and over time, can eventually lead to a breakdown in the relationship between you and your dog.
Behaviour consultation programmes are for owners struggling to deal with their dog’s abnormal behaviour, such as fear or aggression when meeting other dogs or people, problems when being left alone or general fear and anxieties. Together we will work on rebuilding your relationship with your dog. Behaviour problems are more complex than basic training issues which is why this approach is different and more in depth. With all consultations, I take a holistic approach, looking into every aspect of the dog’s life, looking at the bigger picture so that together we have every chance of gaining a successful outcome.
How does it work?
Some behavioural issues can take a while to work through and it is important not to rush things. I can work out a package for you and your dog which is individually tailored to both of your needs.
I will first ask you to fill in an in-depth questionnaire that you will need to send back to me.
Next, I will arrange a pre-consultation phone call to go through anything extra and arrange to meet.
The consultation will take place in your home and will last around 1.5 to 2 hours.
I will then create a report for you with details from the consultation and any training that we have put in place.
Included in the cost of the consultation is email support for up to 3 months and one follow up session at your home which will last around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
What does it cost?
Consultation, follow up report, and one follow up session plus email support for 3 months: £195*
