THE PROCESS

We start with a questionnaire sent via email, which asks you to outline any problems you're having with your dog and gives me a clear picture of your dog's needs and how we can work together. The next step is a face-to-face or virtual consultation. 

                                                                          HOW IT WORKS

 Initial consultation session:

During the session I observe your dog's behaviour and his/her response to the environment and the people around him/her. We will discuss the possible causes of any problems you're having and I will teach you the skills to manage and rehabilitate those issues.

The work we do is very practical. We teach you the skills to train your dog to function more calmly and confidently at home and out-and-about. After this session, you will receive detailed notes for Programmes 1 to 3 and can opt for notes if you select Programme 4.  You can also choose to receive an emailed Behaviour Support Plan which is tailored to your dog's needs. I video relevant parts of our training sessions and send them to you via WhatsApp.
