Integrating the results you want,
with the approach your dog needs.
Initial Session $175 +GST
If you are struggling with a training challenge or your dog is suffering from fear, anxiety, or stress needing a more complex intervention, a consultation is where to start.
This is the right choice if you are in need of any behaviour modification for;
- Fear Based Behaviours
- Anxiety, General
- Separation Anxiety
- Confinement Anxiety
- Leash Reactivity
- Barrier Frustration
- Inter household Dog-dog aggression
- Predatory Behaviour; Predation
- Resource Guarding
As each of these problems can be so varied in severity, we do not recommend a set number of consultations up front. The assessment includes a 75 minute one-on-one private consultation in your home (or over Zoom if preferred). At the conclusion of this consult we will go over a training plan and recommendations will be made for follow up sessions needed to see success.
We may not be able to cover multiple challenges in one session, if you have several items to address we will start with the most urgent and will provide general tips as needed. To see progress it is important to focus on just a few key concepts and homework exercises at once.
Please keep in mind the greatest success will be seen with ongoing coaching. This is a lot like hiring a personal trainer, you may have all the info but the professional guidance that comes with regular check ins can ensure you meet your goals.
Referrals may also be made to other professionals such as, a veterinarian or veterinarian specializing in behaviour, if deemed necessary or helpful for your situation. Behaviour is always information and can be the first sign of many medical conditions.
*Follow up sessions can be scheduled at $125/hour. +GST
