ONE ON ONE BEHAVIOURAL CONSULTATION

A behaviour consultation to provide
one-to-one advice is sometimes necessary to help owners understand their dog's behaviour and to address any specific problems that dogs are displaying.

 

Consultations are designed to help owners solve unwanted behaviours such as leash aggression (barking at other dogs or strangers while on leash), territorial aggression or possessiveness (over food, resources or a favourite location such as a bed or couch), fear, separation anxiety, excessive barking, house training and obsessive-compulsive behaviours.

 

During the consultation, a detailed assessment of the problem/s will be made and you will be given written information and handouts on how to implement the training needed to assist with solving the problem.

TWO WEEK CONFIDENCE BOARD AND TRAIN

There are many possible answers as to why some dogs lack confidence to the point that it handicaps them. This type of behaviour is often seen when dogs have had poor socialization, an abusive past, negative experiences etc.

 

Socialisation refers to the first year in a puppy’s life when it should have been exposed to all kinds of people places and things so that it accepts different people, places and events as normal and not something to be feared.

 

Through-out our two-week confidence building board and train, your dog will commence basic foundation and relationship training. They will be exposed to a multitude of people, dogs, objects, environments, textures, heights, sounds etc throughout their two-week stay.

 

Our accredited trainers will place a strong focus on the dogs overall state of mind and ensuring positive experiences are had.

- Reactivity On-Leash

Dog who are displaying severe/debilitating fear, anxiety, or OCD reactions are best served in the rehabilitation program. Please contact me so that we can discuss the severity of your dog’s aggression so to create a program fit for your dog.  It can take a few days, or up to a week for an aggressive, anxious, or fearful dog to begin to trust in leadership, rules, and boundaries–this starts by removing them from their environment and starting them on a fresh slate in a structured home, with a balanced pack.  A Board and Train is the only way to truly change all of the variables to start reshaping your dog’s state of mind.

 

In addition to all of the basic skills and commands listed in the Three-Week Obedience Program (above), this program includes a 2-hour follow-up at the end of the program where we will transfer all of the information, techniques, and strategies to you to insure continued success, and a final 1-hour follow-up one to two weeks later.
