In-home Behavioural Consultation

PLEASE NOTE, UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE I WILL NOT BE DOING HOME CONSULTATIONS ACROSS THE BORDER IN NSW.

Consultation Information

My initial consultation is for around 2 hours for any number of dogs residing in the home. This initial consultation is very intensive. During the consultation I explain to you the reasons behind your dog's inappropriate behaviours and explain and demonstrate the process we need to take to help rehabilitate your dog to bring him or her back into a more balanced state. It's not unusual to observe positive changes in your dog's behaviour during this initial consultation.

We take your dog to any location where the behaviours we are working through are triggered. Whether that be just in the home, or other locations around distractions such as other dogs and people.

During the initial consultation, I will also cover the following subjects to help you better understand your dog. Understanding these core principles will not only speed up your dog's rehabilitation process, but will also ensure a well-balanced dog, and harmonious relationship.

  • Dog psychology - How your dog views its relationship with you
  • Reinforcing desirable behaviours
  • Inhibiting or extinguishing inappropriate behaviours
  • Teach your dog to respect your personal and social space, and why it is so important for your relationship
  • The importance of your body language and energy and how it affects your relationship with your dog
  • Teaching your dog impulse control
  • Being aware of anxiety in your dog, and how to ensure it doesn't develop
  • Correct socialisation with people and other dogs
  • Satisfying your dog's instinctive needs
  • Setting the correct rules and boundaries and being consistent
  • Understand learning theory
  • Proper leash walking and understanding the principle of opposition reflex response and how it affects walking your dog

Includes 3 months phone, email, Whatsapp support. Whilst I am in Vietnam, support will be via WhatsApp and email
