Behaviour and Training
"A step backwards, after making a wrong turn, is a step in the right direction."
"To begin, begin." - William Wordsworth
The First Chapter
2 hour consultation at your home including a walk outside where necessary (if the issues occur outside then I will go for a walk outside with you and your dog unless there are mitigating circumstances).
Communication with vets where necessary
The consultation includes an in depth investigation of the behaviour, behaviour assessment/analysis, implementation of management.
This is the session where we get to the heart of the issue, lay the foundations and create a plan to achieve success.
Vet Referral where necessary
"Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement and success have no meaning." - Benjamin Franklin.
Having worked with dogs for over 10 years now I have tried and tested lots of different methods of consulting. It seems obvious, but in order to create real, lasting change and get the best results for my clients and their dogs ongoing support is the key.
Initially, sessions are twice weekly after initial consult and include a learning diary with objectives and follow up work, support between sessions and a mix of rehab work with just myself and the dog, and sessions with the client and dog together.
This can also include Rehabilitation walks where applicable.
This is a bespoke service created to help boost progress for you and your dog. This service can be especially helpful for those with a busy lifestyle where I can help do the work for you.
Training walks can be invaluable as part of your dog's rehabilitation.
There are regular transfer sessions where knowledge and progress is shared to help build the confidence of both dog and owner.
After you have completed the initial Behaviour Programme, we then move on to a maintenance programme which will be discussed between us to create the best plan for you and your dog moving forward. This can include a variation of in person sessions, online catch ups, email or phone support.
"Expect Problems and eat them for breakfast" - Alfred A. Montapert.
Setting you up for success!
It is most beneficial to have regular sessions, whilst basic training will be covered, these sessions are bespoke to the needs of you and your pup.
I provide notes from the sessions, a journal for your notes and key milestones and offer support throughout puppyhood!
The aim is to ensure you and your pup are relaxed and comfortable and to provide you with techniques that will help your pup grow in to a well balanced and sociable dog with lots of real-life skills.
