On our first training and behaviour session you will need to set aside up to to two hours for an open consultation. It is a two way process to determine what problems you may be experiencing and the steps I will teach you to put in place to overcome them and help you create a happy, well balanced, confident dog.
Subsequently, there will be five, one hour sessions thereafter - one per week to help kick start your new regime that will be tailor made especially to you and your dogs. This may include anything from basic obedience training (a reliable recall, sit/stay etc) to how to deal with separation anxiety, excessive barking or food/toy possession/aggression for example. Basically, what ever it is you would like to get out of our sessions together.
Finally, I offer a maintenance package. You can purchase as many blocks of five, one hour sessions to use as often or infrequently as you like as extra help to support you through your first year. How often you use your extra time is totally flexible and of course if you want to use it to continue a regular schedule with me, then we can spread it out to suit you.
Please understand that I offer no quick long term results. The success you have will very much depend on the frequency and consistency you invest into your training regime.
FREE TRAINING TIPS TO REMEMBER!
To get the best results from your dog when teaching something new, you need to set them up to winfirst time.
Make sure they have had plenty of opportunity to go to the toilet and have had the chance to release some excess energy before training. If they are distracted you will have to keep repeating the exercise and both you and your dog will just end up frustrated.
Repetition is only worthwhile when they are getting it right, because it drums it in to them to keep doing the same process for a positive reaction. On the other hand, if you have to keep correcting them because they're distracted by something, all they learn is correction which can become rather confusing if not corrected correctly and within the precise time frame that is crucial to their learning ability.
Above all, training should be fun for both you and your dog, so allow plenty of time for ten minutes training and you should have success. Allow ten minutes, and your dog will pick up the fact you're rushed or agitated and will more than likely take advantage of the situation. Dogs are all about the energy we radiate, believe me, they know when we're off kilter.
Thank you for investing in your dogs' future well-being, they will reward you for it!
