One to one training sessions are tailored to your requirements. These may be one- off sessions to address minor problems or a number of sessions to support you through more progressive training. Training sessions are suitable for teaching basic obedience- exercises such as sit, down, stay, leave, recall, heel, distraction work and emergency stops. I also offer trick training and clicker training. Prices start from £50 per session.
Behaviour counselling may be required for behaviour problems. I am a full member of the APBC and am an Animal Behaviour and Training Council Registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist. For more information on the APBC and the ABTC please visit apbc.org.uk and abtcouncil.org.uk.
A behaviour counselling session is much more in-depth than a simple training session. I will take a thorough history of your dog and the behaviour problem. I will then discuss with you the possible reasons for the problem and devise a behaviour modification programme which we will also discuss at length. You will then receive written report, full telephone and/ or email support for 6 months. A veterinary referral is required for a behaviour consultation to rule out medical causes of behaviour problems. If you think your dog may need behaviour counselling, please contact me to discuss. Prices start from £120 per consultation.
I also offer advice and practical sessions for new puppy owners. By educating and socialising a puppy correctly from the beginning, owners reduce the chance of behaviour problems developing and pups are more likely to grow into sociable and obedient adult dogs that are a pleasure to have around. It is never too early to start educating your puppy! Prices start from £50 per session.
