Behaviour Training

For things like barking, walking on the lead and recall we have our brilliant dog training and puppy training sessions. Behaviour training is for behaviours that require a more in-depth training and assessment plans, and can include things like aggression, resource guarding, and separation anxiety.

All of our techniques are based on science, modern industry research and our experience. We cant offer quick fixes, but we do have kind, tested and simple techniques.

Our Process

This is a brief outline of our process for different behavioural issues you may have. Behaviour is one of our passions, and we tailor every session to both you and your dogs needs. We work to instill confidence in both you and your pup! Throughout, and beyond you can call us at anytime to check training or if you have just had a bad day!

Stage 1

  1. To start we will have a chat on the phone; where you can explain any behaviours your dog shows and what your concerns are. We can also then explain our process and training techniques in more detail.

  2. Then we will send you a questionaire to fill in about your dog, what the issues are and what you have tired so far.

  3. We ask you pop your dog along to the vets for a check up- just to rule out any medical causes of the behaviour! 

Stage 2

Human or Dog Aggresion

We split our initial consultation into two stages for you:
 

  1.  The first session will be an opportunity for us to meet you and your dog in person, try to understand what is causing these behaviours, and start to implement some initally basic training and safety measures.

  2. The next session is when we look at specific techniques to change your dogs reactivity. We will use stooge dogs or stooge strangers so you can practise in a safe real life situation. 

Resource Guarding

We spilt our initial consultation into two stages:
 

  1.  The first session will be an opportunity for us to meet you and your dog in person, try to understand what is causing these behaviours, and start to implement some initally basic training and safety measures.

  2. The next session is when we look at specific techniques and protocols for the resource guarding

Seperation Anxiety & Other

Seperation Anxiety and other:

Our initially consultion will allow us to meet your dog, an start implemeting our simple technique to help your dog.

We may split the consultation into 

one or two sessions

depending on you

and your dog's

needs!

Stage 3

Following on from our sessions we write you a full behavioural report, where we will outline what we saw, and why your dog is displaying the behaviours they are! We will write you up a full training plan where we outline all of the techniques! 

It is hard to say how many session you will need - as it depends on the dog and how they experience the world! For certain behaviours, you may need a few follow-up sessions! On average it is 2 to 4 sessions for most clients.

Stage 1

The cost of the initial consultation is £65, and it is 90 minutes (split over 1 or 2 sessions. From their, individual sessions are £50 per 60 minutes. You can also add free phone check in during the week too.
