Dog Behaviour Modification & Training
Many unwanted behaviours stem from misunderstandings between yourself and your dog. Redressing the balance can help to restore the strong bond that you have created.
During the initial assessment, I will complete a detailed history about your dog's behaviour and any training requirements, discuss your goals and aspirations, and will talk you through an initial plan of action so that immediate steps can be put into place to start helping your dog feel happier.
What I can help you with
Pulling on the lead, Recall, Noise Phobia, Separation Anxiety, Obsessive behaviours, Excessive barking, Dog-to-Dog aggression, Jumping up, and much more...
An initial assessment in your home of between 2-3 hours which may include a dog walk if appropriate.
A bespoke Behaviour Modification & Training report to be issued within 4 working days of the initial assessment.
2 further follow-on sessions of an hour each to be booked by the client and completed within 3 calendar months of the date of the initial assessment. An updated report will be issued after each of these sessions.
Support by email, text and phone for 3 calendar months from the date of the initial assessment.
The Dog Behaviour Modification & Training programme costs £200.
Additional behaviour modification and training appointments can be arranged at a cost of £40 per hour.
Additional dogs living in the same household will be charged at half price.
It is strongly recommended that your dog is fully vet checked before any behaviour work is undertaken in order to rule out any underlying medical issues, especially if the behaviour has developed suddenly.
I will be unable to work with any female dogs in season, or due to come in to season. Often this condition will affect behaviour temporarily and it will resolve itself after a few weeks.
A dog is classed as being 24 weeks of age or older.
A deposit equivalent to 25% of the total cost is payable upon booking. The deposit is non-refundable; should cancellation be made with less than 48 hours notice the deposit will be retained. However, should you wish to cancel and provided you have given more than 48 hours notice, the deposit will be kept for 3 calendar months from the date of the original appointment to allow you to rebook. If this rebooked appointment is cancelled (at any time), it is at the discretion of the dog behaviourist as to whether the deposit is available to offset any future appointment costs.
The remaining balance of the total cost is payable in full at the end of the initial assessment by cash or direct bank transfer.
