1-2-1 Behaviour consultation and plan

Our behaviour consultations are designed to deal with issues that are more complex than standard training. These can include problems such as: resource guarding, separation anxiety, multi dog household relationships and reactivity to name a few. Our initial consultation involves a 90 minute session to assess your dog in person and determine the correct plan for them. After the session a personalised behaviour modification plan will be sent to you as well as ongoing support via Whatsapp. It is unlikely that a specific behavioural issue will resolve after one session alone, therefore, it is reccomended that follow up appointments are scheduled to help with progress.

These sessions are designed for those who may need work with specific behaviours that may make walking difficult for both you and them.
