A private one-on-one consultation can be arranged for dogs that are having a specific behavioural problem in the home environment. Behaviours such as resource guarding, barking, toilet training problems, destructive behaviour including inappropriate chewing, sibling rivalry problems (depending on severity), escaping, excessive pulling on walks, barking at other dogs on walks, or teaching your dog to be calm indoors are examples of behaviours that would suit a behavioural consultation.
The initial consultations is 1 ½ hours in duration, and follow up sessions can be purchased as a package for ongoing training - These session are 1 hour in duration and the amount required will depend on the problems presented. This can be discussed in the initial consultation. During our inital consultation we will take a thorough history of the dog and its behaviour, discussing why the behaviours may be occurring and giving advice on how the behaviours may be managed. Follow up sessions will implement training strategies to help change your dogs behaviour and troubleshoot any issues that may be arising.
Sometimes general behavioural problem notes are given at the time of the consultation if appropriate, and then a behaviour modification program is designed and sent to the owner within a few days of the consultations. Follow up sessions will be organised for 1-2 weeks after the initial visit to assist with putting the strategies are being put into place and to help with any further issues.
