SERVICES

Canine behaviour consultations

This service is for the assessment and rehabilitation of behavioural problems in dogs of all ages. It is designed to improve all areas of the dog’s life and is very useful to solve many issues which are often symptoms of the bigger picture. You will have a deeper understanding of how your dog thinks and how you can communicate more effectively. Many issues will be resolved very quickly. The consultation will provide you with essential knowledge of how to deal with dogs in the real world and your dog will love you for it!

An initial assessment will be taken over the telephone before arranging the full consultation carried out at your home or where the problem behaviour occurs. The consultation will last between 2-3 hours. I will take a full history of the dog and gather information on everything from health to diet and lifestyle. I will ask to see the dog being handled as normal so that I can get an honest view of the problems presented then I will explain my assessment for the reasons behind behaviour and move on to working with the dog to solve these issues. Everything will be explained fully so that you understand the process and I will follow this up with your own personal written programme of rehabilitation covering everything that was discussed in the meeting. If any equipment is used this will be explained to you. Results will be dependent on you following the advice given.  After the consultation you will be able to contact me at any time to go over any questions you have, my continued advice is included in the price. Should an additional follow up consultation be required this will be offered at a reduced hourly rate.

Dog training

You may have a specific issue with your dog that you would like to work on and these sessions are designed just for that. They are 1 hour long and can be at your home or in a park or public place. You may need more than 1 session to deal with certain problems depending on the personality of your dog. Please contact me to discuss your needs.

Cost: Dog training – £45 per hour

Puppy buying service and socialisation

The excitement of getting a new puppy is wonderful, but there so many decisions to make and factors to consider, starting with choosing the right breed! I can assist with the whole process right from the beginning to ensure you have the best pet for you, your family and your lifestyle. This service also includes a programme for socialising your puppy during the critical fear imprint period of up to 12 weeks old. Puppies that are well socialised during this period are most likely to be balanced, manageable, happy dogs when they get older. It really is worth putting the extra effort in at the beginning to ensure you have a happy long life with your dog.

Cost: dependant on your location, please contact me for more information

Rescue dogs

Getting a rescue dog can be hugely rewarding but it can also be quite daunting, particularly the unknown that comes with most rescue dogs. Unfortunately we cannot ask the dogs what they have been through, however I can help you assess the dog to get a clearer insight into its temperament and personality. For the dog also it can be very stressful coming into a new environment and we must do all we can to ensure they settle in as quickly as possible. I am particularly interested in working with rescue dogs and can help make the process as wonderful as it can be.

Cost: dependant on your location, please contact me for more information

Telephone consultations

Telephone consultations are for those owners who live too far away to meet for a one to one consultation. I will take an initial assessment before deciding if your problems can be worked with over the telephone. Some problems will need to be seen face to face and I will not take telephone bookings unless I feel I can help. Please contact me to discuss your needs.

For more information or to book your session please contact me.

Cost: Telephone consultations – £15 per half hour.
