A behaviour consultation covers a broad range of problem behaviours such as jumping, lead reactivity, digging, barking and more. The session is a two hour consultation where we discuss the issues, develop a management plan and a training plan. Also included is relevant hands on practical instruction.
I provide a written report of our discussion, including all relevant handouts and the training instructions.
ONE ON ONE SKILLS TRAINING
Do you have trouble finding a class that suits your availability, do you work different shifts or have children to look after? If so, these sessions are designed for you.
Each session is tailored to the skills you would specifically like to train, such as basic skills, loose lead walking, recall plus more. They can be in the comfort of your own home or at various locations with the days and times flexible to suit your individual situation. You can book one session or a block of four, each session comes with a written report and relevant handouts.
Loosen that lead!
Loose Lead Walking
Does you dog drag you down the street? Does it feel like they are taking you for a walk instead? Do they ignore you when you walk out the front door? I have a program specifically developed to teach your dog to walk nicely on lead, making walking a pleasant experience for you and your dog.
Each session is tailored to your individual situation, the trainings starts in a low distraction environment and over the sessions we increase the distractions in their environment. We work on engagement, reward the right behaviours but we also introduce strategies of how to manage any pulling on the lead and manage distractions in their environment such as people or other dogs. You can also add skills such as come when called, which is practiced in a safe area using a long lead.
Does your dog bark and lunge at other dogs on lead, making it stressful and difficult to walk them?
As an additional option you can add the reactivity component to the one on one sessions. This add-on specifically works on reducing behaviours such as growling, lunging and barking by building your dog’s confidence around their triggers. The triggers can be dogs behind fences, other dogs on lead or people. We work together, establishing a training distance, introduce the relevant skills and practice management strategies if a trigger is too close.
The sessions can be in a variety of locations or in your local area and all of the sessions come with a written report and relevant handouts.

I am passionate about helping you develop a great relationship with your pets, one that is built on trust. By learning and understanding how our dogs feel by reading their body language, give them an opportunity to have a choice, to choose their interactions and let their personality shine.
Each dog is an individual and they all have their own story and their own needs. I'd love to meet your dog and work with you enabling show you how I can help you and your best friend live together in harmony.
I believe in training our dogs using rewards based training methods, I use positive reinforcement and reward appropriate behaviour using high value food.
