Our one-to-one sessions are perfect for resolving reactivity, aggression, nervousness, fear or anxiety-based issues, over-arousal and sensory processing issues, working with phobias or trauma and resolving resource guarding.
You can utilise these sessions for teaching loose lead walking, recall, improving focus/engagement and resolving jumping up, begging, and excessive barking. Also suitable for learning how to handle your exuberant, 'in-your-face' adolescent dog!
If you don't have any behavioural problems you feel you need to resolve, but rather you just want to improve your relationship with your animal or want help training something new then I can help with that too.
These sessions are ideal for developing a deeper understanding about your animals' behaviour, key needs, communication signals and ethical training practices.
The dog's welfare and the safety of everyone involved will be my primary focus.
All action plans I provide for resolving any behavioural 'problems' will have a biopsychosocial approach.
I avoid the use of corrections and punishment and take into account the animal's individual needs and preferences as well as their genetics, learning experiences and environment. I will work closely with your vet and any other professionals where appropriate to ensure you and your dog get the support you need.
Initial chat via email or phone call to learn what you need and hope to gain from my services.
I will take a detailed case history/initial assessment online.
I will read any vet referral documents before my visit.
We will arrange an initial visit/meeting to go discuss your dog's problem behaviour in detail; going through practical management, useful hacks, and any required training (The length of our first session depends on your needs but will usually last 1-2 hours).
After my visit, I can write up session notes / a bespoke action plan based on your and your dog's needs which will be emailed to you.
We can build on your action plan through follow-up sessions.
Follow-up support can be provided in person or online.
£250 for a stand-alone initial assessment - or invest in follow-up support and save with a package deal.
