What are Consultations?
Allowing us to address bespoke issues, advice is given on how to nurture best possible relationships and lay a behavioural foundation on which the training of commands can then be built. It is only fair to point out that some learned behaviours cannot be “fixed”, only managed, so you may always need to exert vigilance and management techniques to reduce risk where appropriate…success will be greatly influenced by a dog’s early-learning experiences.
Where are Consultations?
Currently via FaceTime or Zoom when all members of the household can be present. Considering necessity and sufficiency, sessions may extend to your garden, the road side, a park or other locations. Home visits will be available when safe to do so.
When are Consultations?
We will liaise with you to arrange a mutually convenient time. Please allow 1 hour for a skill-specific session, approximately 2 hours for pre-ownership advice and up to 4 hours for help with your new dog or problematic issues.
