** Whilst we appreciate times are uncertain, for some, increased time at home and quiet urban environments may be the perfect time to start training your dog/puppy.
For this reason we have put together modified approaches to supporting clients, taking social distancing and isolation into consideration. Please explore to find out more
It goes without saying that while we are on lock down we are not doing any in-person meetings so where social-distancing is described, please assume this applies to when lockdown has been lifted and social distancing guidelines return**
It can be embarrassing and incredibly upsetting when your dog lunges and barks at other dogs, people, cars, bikes, cats etc. It’s also very stressful for your dog and even stressful for those on the receiving end of their behaviour.
Roz & Claire frequently work with reactive dogs to help them learn to choose more socially acceptable behaviours. Infact, dog-dog practicals are Roz’s favourite thing to teach!
We have a team of helper dogs and human assistants at the ready to assist in training when necessary.
To tackle the problem effectively an intensive and thorough behaviour modification program is offered:
- In depth assessment and individualised training plans
- Written report and extensive hand outs along with video tutorials where appropriate
- The option for frequent sessions with other dogs/people
- We even offer intensive training programs where we can step in and do the training for you. You can accompany these sessions or we can do it while you are at work.
- Ongoing support
- We try to avoid doing one-off sessions, as few problems can be resolved in an instant. If you are cautious of booking a package please let us know and we can discuss options with you.
