Behaviour management is aimed at helping you with specific issues you are experiencing with your dog such as leash reactivity, pulling on lead or a reliable recall. We can work along side you to help you change these behaviours, or do the bulk of the training for you to advance the training process.
Often i'ts not just sit, drop and stay. We understand today's busy lifestyles and how this this can impact not only our our dogs welfare, but our ability to sometimes get on top of some behaviour issues that surface sooner than later. In most cases there is no one quick fix, so if someone tells you there is I would suggest researching further. We train using Positive Reinforcement methods and are force free trainers. We teach life skills necessary for dogs to live not only successfully, but happily along side us.
For your initial consultation our qualified trainer will come to your home, discuss with you the problem behaviour/s and gather a better understanding of your dogs personality, environment and routine.
We'll and conduct an assessment of your dog and take time to explain clearly why some problems/ behaviors occur. From here we create a tailored training plan and begin training, showing you practical techniques to teach you to train your dog. This initial appointment is usually approximately 1.5 hours.
After your initial consultation, training options will be presented to choose what suits you best.
Ongoing training sessions with your trainer are a great way to have us guide you along your training plan and can be arranged at your consultation. Each session is 45min -1hr of training and is planned according to your progress and schedule to ensure you get the most out of our guidance.
We also offer a 'Train Me' option where we can work with your dog frequently to advance training of particular issue. Issues such as leash reactivity can take much patience, repetition and time and are often too overwhelming a task for the average dog owner. We recognize this leads to the subsequent training not being followed for many different reasons. Commonly it's schedules, lack of confidence or skills to conduct the training successfully which is understandable, were the professionals called in to help you because of these reasons, right? For this we offer 'Train Me' where we'll collect the dog, work through the behaviour for the sessions discussed and involve you in handover training to keep everyone working together.
Whether you choose the train me option, ongoing training packs for guidance, or continue your training alone, we offer ongoing support via phone or email.
