1-2-1 Behaviour consultation
Behaviour consultations are for dogs that are experiencing some form of unwanted behaviour that may not be acceptable for the owner and the environment that the dog lives in, this can vary from destructive dogs, separation anxiety, mild aggression to basic manners and all the little bits in-between!
Many dogs do very well fitting into our domesticated world but many also don’t, we sometimes forget we are living with a different species with a completely different communication system to us, so even with our big complicated brains we still get it wrong.
Many behavioural problems arise from the dog not understanding what is wanted from its human if we don’t learn a common language then how are we ever going to guide our beloved dogs into making the right choices, well the simple fact is we “cant” and we shouldn’t blame the dogs for not understanding a foreign language from a different species if it was never taught to them in the first place.
1-2-1 behaviour consultations will help you and your dog communicate to each other if this is achieved then and only then have you got a chance to guide your dog out of unwanted behaviours, if your dog does not understand you then it will be impossible to teach the dog.
The consultation will last between 3 and 4 hours depending on how quick you and the dog gets it, we will form a communicational language for you and your dog with step by step training instructions, we will also target the main issues with real time training with the dog and the main issues, all this is done with a hands off approach all we will need is your voice.
You will see a difference in your dog’s behaviour during my time there and you will be educated into how to train and live with your dog as this is key ,you will need to be the dogs teacher for the rest of its life and not just a one off training session I will teach you how to do this in a kind non abusive manner that the dogs understand.
All this will be written up into your own personalized behaviour modification plan that gives you step by step instructions so no need to take notes. You will also receive six weeks of free back up via email or phone if things change or the plan needs adjusting to suit the changes in your dog, it’s easy to slip back into old ways so sometimes a quick chat on the phone can get you back on track so always call me and remember I want you and your dog to succeed .
Many other organisations only other a 1.5 - 2 hours consultation,in my opinion this will not be adequate for an in-depth behavioural consultation, that's why my service will be 3-4 hours this will give you the best chance to succeed.
This Bronze service is £240.00
The silver service is as above but with a return visit usually a few hours, this is extremely beneficial when a stage by stage behavioural modification is needed.
This would be a better choice for high level aggression cases either dog on human or dog on dog aggression, these are very common place these days and can be extremely stressful to the owners almost dictating their lives and living around the dog.
With cases like these it will be unprofessional to just leave you to get on with it after a 4-hour consultation and the chances of success would be lower.
This package is also useful for more stubborn dogs that will need more persistent behaviour modification,it is also helpful to the owners as a refresher because its very easy to go back to your old ways and if this happens then to dog will follow.
With cases like these we will get the dog to a level of training and a good language between you and the dog then after a couple of weeks we will meet again to go through the next stage this will usually be in the situation the dog shows aggression we will work on potentially getting your dog to feel more comfortable around other dogs or humans a high percentage of these cases end up with us walking next to other dogs with no reaction from the original presumed aggressive dog, but please take note this doesn’t always mean your dog can run off and play in daisy fields with lots of other dogs this can take time for some dogs and is not always possible for all, with this service you will get a further six weeks of backup.
Silver service is £390.00
Gold service is all the above services with a backup service that may still include more visits if I feel they are needed, this will last the life time of your dog.
