Want to find out more about dog training? Or worried about your dogs behaviour meeting others? The FAQs below answer a few of these common questions.
Training sessions usually take between 2 and 3 hours depending on the number of problems, how many dogs and people are involved.
Once you master the basic communication skills between human and dog you will find there is a ‘domino effect’; a lot of problems stem from misunderstandings and a lack of hierarchy. A dog is much happier when the owner is in charge.
It tends to be that you will only need one session. If you are consistent in practicing the methods I demonstrate you will be able to solve problems very quickly. It is relatively rare that you will need to attend a second session unless it is for socialisation with other dogs. Telephone back up is included in the price you pay for the first session and you can always choose to book a second session at a later date.
Prices start from £120 (plus travel expenses, if you’d prefer me to visit you)
I have problems in the house with visitors and people passing the house. Do you carry out home visits?
Yes, I can travel to you if you live within a 50 mile radius of LE9 9LW.
Yes – for some problems a home visit is not necessary and it is more economic for the owners to bring their dogs to me in Newbold Verdon.
The exercises I use with aggressive dogs ensure that both your dog(s) and my dogs stay safe and sound. I see aggressive dogs every week and it usually turns out to be fear aggression. The dog doesn’t know how to behave in public, maybe because of a previous incident and has found that a show of aggression means other people avoid them or their owner is embarrassed or scared by their own dog’s behaviour and keeps them away from other dogs. This becomes a habit for the dog but creates a problem for the owners as they are always on the lookout for other dogs to avoid!
Each and every client will receive some notes on the day outlining the core methods. After the session I write a report and email it with additional notes attached. I recommend each client buy a copy of my book ‘Dog training without treats’ as it gives a full and thorough insight into how I work, how I learned my techniques by working with ‘difficult’ dogs and why treat training doesn’t work in a lot of cases.
I tend to only see dogs on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (excluding evenings) apart from some emergency callouts.
To make sure you get an appointment at a time suitable for you book a least 2 weeks in advance, although I do occasionally get a cancellation. Give me a call on 07971 894631 (mobile) and 01455 828748 (landline).
