€65 for initial consultation.
This involves a discussion with you, observing the dog and drawing up a detailed plan of action with pricing included, for your consideration.
⁕ Travel expenses may be included, if I travel to you, and you are a distance away.
What services do you provide?
Training and Behaviour Modification. I do not provide traditional obedience training.
What METHODS DO YOU USE?
Fear, force and pain free. Choice based and Positive Reinforcement only.
What equipment do you use?
'Y' harness and long line/leash only.
If you usually use a flat collar, we can start from there.
where does it take place?
Location varies, depending on requirements needed to address the particular issue. Your own home, my facility, public places.
do i need to be there?
Mostly, yes. I will be training you also! You and your dog will work as a team. You will learn together and improve your bond. This also allows you to see how I behave towards your dog. Having said that, there will be times when I will work with your dog alone. Usually to see any differences in his/her behaviour and responses, with/without you.
Will there be other dogs there?
Usually, no. Unless the presence of another dog or dogs is necessary to the training or behaviour modification taking place. But we will always discuss that together, in advance.
how long does it take?
It depends on the issue. Also, training/behaviour modification takes time, practice and patience. Practice will be done by you and your dog between sessions with myself.
do you guarantee results?
Your specific, desired outcomes cannot be guaranteed as each dog is an individual, with a unique personality, a unique past, and living in unique circumstances. Sometimes managing the environment, is what is required.
