Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs? Has your dog snapped at you when you tried to take something away from them? Does your dog destroy things when left alone?
These are just a few examples of behaviour problems that can cause real distress to both dog and owner. These behaviour problems take careful management and effective positive methods to decrease, and eventually eradicate, the behaviour altogether.
Behavioural consultations are carried out in the owner’s home and take up to three hours. First, I gather a detailed history of your dog; including diet, exercise, routine and previous training methods. Then we will discuss the problems you are experiencing in depth.
Once a full history has been taken, I discuss and demonstrate the methods that will be used to counteract problem behaviours during the first stage of behaviour modification.
Once the first session has taken place, I will write up the training techniques I have advised you to use during this session. This means you are able to refer to the notes, if you feel you have forgotten anything or are unsure how to proceed when applying training techniques.
The majority of behaviour problems will need follow-up sessions and continued communication. Follow-up sessions are tailored to your dog's need and last either one or two hours. I advise all my clients that, during the ongoing behaviour modification program, they can phone or email me with any problems they experience without further charge. I also ask for an update from the owner to see how the behaviour modification is progressing.
