What to expect
If you are coming for a face-to-face session, we will be working outside.
This is for everyone’s safety and because it works best for the dog.
So please wrap up to stay warm and dry.
If the weather is really challenging, we can also work in a well ventilated and heated shed.
Please note that we may not get your dog out of the car on your first session. The most effective way for me to help your dog is to work first with the humans. If we understand why our dog is doing the unwanted behaviours. what dogs need to succeed, and if we get our bit right, the dog behaviour can change completely. The trick is in training us humans first. And then you take homework with you to practice with your dog. Step by step.
I’ll be explaining why your puppy or dog is behaving the way it is. And we’ll be learning about the key difference between humans and dogs. We’ll be considering what your dog needs in order to relax, feel safe, and get things right. And how you can provide this for your dog. You will have got lots of things right for your dog - and there may need some things changing between you both in order for you and your dog to succeed at a new level together.
Of course, there will be a time for practicing together with your dog during the sessions.
On line or in person - all we have to do is teach the humans:
to help you understand why your dog is doing behaviours you may not want
to get you up to speed on your understanding and mastery of DOG
to give you homework and coaching to support you practice new things
to build on your successes with new knowledge and next practical steps
How do we meet?
We are having fantastic results when I work with the humans only. Why online? Because it may be more convenient for you – saving travel time, allowing more flexible appointment times, or because you live far away.
We know from many happy owners and dogs that working online is very effective. All we have to do is teach the humans – getting you up to speed on your understanding and mastery of DOG, and helping you practice new things - and your four-legged friend will be enabled to get everything right for you.
