Group training isn’t for all dogs and some behavioural and training issues are not best dealt within a class environment. For dogs best suited to 1-1 training we will work with you to help you understand and resolve behaviour and training issues. We do this using behaviour modification and management methods that do not use force, fear, pain or intimidation.
One 2 One sessions are held on an appointment basis in your own home, or in one of our training venues. Initial visits and assessments are around 90 minutes and any follow on appointments if required will be 1 hour sessions. We also advise that as many family members that will be involved in the training should be present. We will discuss and record a full history of the problem and your dog’s temperament will be assessed. Our goal will be to make clear the motivation for the behaviour and give you a treatment programme that works for you.
As with all dog training there is no magic wand and treatment of behaviour problems is not like you see on the TV! It can take time to establish the causes of issues and develop the right training programme for your individual circumstances. All dog training requires patience and consistency with the best results being achieved where we consider the long-term goals, as well as immediate management and training.
What happens after the consultation?
You will receive a full report and summary of the consultation to make sure you get off on the right foot.
One 2 One consultations greatly vary due to there being all sorts of issues that can cause problems. Often only one consultation is necessary, but further advice and after-care can be provided via the telephone, email or support visits. Follow on appointments maybe necessary to help you and your dog continue to make progress, If appropriate we have a group session that runs once a week where you can practice around people and dogs in a safe environment whilst you build up confidence in yourself and dog.
