Dog Behaviour Training

Our dog behaviour sessions are run via veterinary referral which we will arrange on your behalf. We are happy to see all dogs from puppy to adult hood; with minor training problems through to serious aggression, obsessive compulsive disorders and separation issues.

The consultations are bespoke depending on the condition being treated. Each patient is assessed as an individual and the owner’s ability and environment are all considered.

Consultation Format

The consultations are interactive and progressive, whilst a professional and detailed approach will be delivered we make every effort to ensure our clients are comfortable with the techniques and understand why they are necessary.

A minimum period of 2 hours is required for a one to one consultation. This will ensure a full history is taken, diagnosis made and treatment plan put in place. Occasionally some consultations may take a little longer but there is a fixed pricing level at 2.5 hours. The consultations are usually conducted at the clients home but can be arranged elsewhere if necessary. A short 30 minutes introductory session can be arranged at the centre.

Shorter consultations can be arranged depending on the condition, giving the owner an opportunity to meet with our consultants and discuss their concerns before committing to a full assessment and treatment plan.

Socialisation walks and one to one observation sessions outside can also be arranged as necessary.

Methods

Methods requiring respect and control will be applied with the use of body language techniques and a change in attitude and handling. Boundary control and a positive reward system coupled with a re-enforced level of obedience will ensure a high level of success for the client. Advice and practical explanation will be given on any training aid recommended.

After Care

We remain in direct email and phone contact after the consultation and if required are happy to make a repeat visit at a reduced fee.
