IN-PERSON SERVICES

Advice, guidance & training for our local clients

INITIAL ASSESSMENT CONSULTATION

The Assessment includes a consultation (~60 minutes) and a written behaviour modification plan which starts you off on your journey.  An Assessment is a comprehensive look at your dog and the behaviour issue(s) you are experiencing. I provide expert and professional advice to help you understand their undesirable behaviour, but more importantly start helping to improve it! 
 

My specialist areas are fear-based issues: Aggression, Reactivity, Separation Anxiety, Resource Guarding, Phobias, General Anxiety & Nervousness


Post Assessment you will receive a written Behaviour Modification Outline which will walk you through the areas we discussed during our consultation. Included in the plan is educational and reading materials to help you gain further knowledge on your dog's behaviour. Following on from there we will schedule a mix of Coaching Sessions and Training Walks to suit your dog's needs and help you reach your goal.

***  Due to COVID my Assessments are offered through Skype or Zoom. I do not need to see your dog to "assess them" and many times a stranger coming into the home is unsettling for anxious dogs. The pre-assessment form and virtual discussion will give me all the information I need to understand your dog , their motivation and their behaviour. All other services are still in-person ***

COACHING SESSIONS

(BEHAVIOUR or BASIC TRAINING)

This is a session involving me, you and your dog.

 

During our session, I will teach you the professional hands-on skills needed to train your dog. We will also discuss any relevant areas which you should be aware of to help you and your dog succeed. This can be subjects like body language, general behaviour and also how to problem-solve or manage real-life situations effectively. 

 

FOR BEHAVIOUR ISSUES: You must have had an Assessment prior to this service taking place. Assessments allow you to have a good understanding of your dog's behaviour before we begin training them and this helps our sessions to be as productive and focused as possible.

Investment: £40 for up to 60 mins

TRAINING WALKS

(BEHAVIOUR or BASIC TRAINING)

 

Just me and your dog training together. Expert handling and techniques exclusively focused around training your dog and helping them practice better behaviours. 


I do recommend a mixture of Coaching Sessions and Training Walks so that you are following on from my training with the same structure. This helps you and your dog reach your goals quicker. I can pick up your dog from your home during the day or you can meet me at a designated point.  A progress report post-session will be sent and videos if applicable.

IN-HOME FUNdation PUPPY COURSE

This is our highly recommended 6 week starter course for all breeds of puppies from 8 weeks up to 6 months of age. This course is a similar one to what we teach in the group lessons, however, you have me all to yourself and the lessons can be tailored to your puppy's individual needs. 

Who is this for? This can be a refresher course for those who have not had a puppy for some time, brand new puppy owners or someone in between who just wants to make sure they are putting the right paw forward!

The benefits of In-Home vs Group? The whole family can join in on the fun and learning. Start as soon as the puppy comes home, no waiting (prevent "bad" habits from forming). Fewer distractions which = easier training. 

But doesn't my puppy need to play with other dogs? Dog-Dog socialisation is about 5% of what the group class is all about. There are SO many other aspects to socialisation which are far more important for your puppy like positive exposure to different environments, loud sounds and handling - all of which we cover on the course!

This course covers the foundations of basic doggy manners for both inside and outside the home. Recall, loose lead walking, teething, potty training, socialisation, preventing separation anxiety and resource guarding are just some of the topics which are included. This course is extremely comprehensive in helping you and your puppy communicate and understand each other.

Investment: £199 per puppy

6 One hour lessons weekly in your home
A printed booklet of homework to keep
