Individual Behaviour Consultations

Why One-On-One Consults?

Some behaviour issues simply cannot be addressed through group classes. One-on-one consultations are specifically tailored to help you train your dog to be the best dog they can be!

Whether you have a shy dog who can’t learn in a classroom situation, a dog with more serious behaviour issues, or if you just prefer a one-on-one learning environment, we can tailor the training to your individual needs and help you achieve your goals.

Plus we understand that sometimes people who have never had a dog before, just need that little bit of extra help.

    How Can We Help?

    • Anxiety: We specialise in working with dogs who suffer from anxiety. If you have the time, patience and commitment that is needed, we can help you both gain the confidence to lead a much more relaxed life together.
    • Leash Reactivity: Do you feel like you can’t leave the house with your dog without feeling apprehensive?  We can help you manage and gradually overcome lead reactivity so you can enjoy your walks together again.
    • Sound Sensitivity: Is your dog reacting to the doorbell or sounds in your apartment building, deliveries and visitors arriving?  If so, we can help you gradually change their emotional responses to our noisy urban environment.
    • Basic Training: From foundational skills and how to apply them, to turning problem behaviours like jumping, pulling on the leash and lack of self-control around, we can show you how to get your dog to work WITH you using positive and fear-free training techniques.
    • Puppy Home-schooling: Some people prefer to home school their puppy because attending classes can be tricky in this busy world… This can be arranged! 

    Let us know what is troubling you and your dog and we’ll be happy to help.

    How the Program Works

    Book Appointment

    Once I have reviewed your form, I will contact you to recommend what training package to book that best suit your individual training needs.

    Initial Consultation

    During our initial consultation, we’ll discuss in detail what you’re experiencing so we can get to the root of the problem and design a training plan to move forward with.

    Follow Up

    Depending on you and your dog’s needs, I will provide you with second-to-none follow-up support to ensure you and your dog are steadily moving toward your goals.

    Training Options

    Face-to-face training in your home, at mine, or out & about.
