THINKING-DOG BEHAVIOUR PROGRAMME

SUPPORTING PEOPLE AND DOGS 

 

Living with a dog who struggles with aspects of their daily lives can be worrying. We know how hard it can be and we’re here to help you and your dog find solutions that work for both of you. 

ETHICAL TRAINING

Our work is positive and reward-based, and focuses on:

Listening - to you and your dog

Understanding - helping you and your dog communicate clearly with each other

Teaching - teaching your dog calmness, resilience and self-control

 

FREE FIRST CONTACT CALL

 

We offer a free 15 minute phone call to chat through any questions you may have. Please email Claire, our Admin Manager, at fern.ember.dog.behaviour@gmail.com and she will set up a call for you. 

 

THE PROCESS

Behaviour Consultation: our work is based on finding solutions together in a relaxed, supportive environment. Each programme starts with a consultation, which gives you time to explore the causes of your dog's behaviour and guides you in devising workable strategies. 

 

The starting-point to this process is changing your dog's emotional responses. Once your dog feels better about the things that feel challenging in life, then we can start teaching calmness, confidence and self-control.
