Is your dog becoming leash reactive, fearful of loud noises, showing signs of separation anxiety, or are you seeing another behaviour that is causing concern? Don't give up just yet. We offer science-based training and behaviour change programs with a holistic approach. We address the cause of the behaviour, not just the symptoms (behaviour) and therefore, no punishment, force or dominance is used with your dog. No e-collars, pinch collars, choke or slip collars are ever used. We work with your dog, we don't do things to him. We develop custom solutions which are gentle and respectful of your dog. We want to keep that spark in your dog that makes him or her so unique.
We have two options for you and your dog: Day Training or Coaching. If you are too busy to train your dog, let us do it for you. Day Training is convenient and effective. It is similar to sending your dog away to be trained, except your dog doesn't need to leave home (we are insured & bonded). If you prefer to do the training yourself, we will Coach you.
What to expect prior to our first meeting: We ask that you fill in a Behaviour History Questionnaire. This gives us a snapshot of where your dog is at that point. At the first meeting we will review the information, assess the situation and environment, and begin working with your and your dog.
For difficult cases we collaborate with veterinary behaviorists who will then work with your veterinarian and us.
