We can also tailor the behaviour modification plan to address particular behaviour problems that you may be experiencing. This bespoke plan sets the owner up with effective management techniques and training to deal with any behaviour issues, granting them confidence and a new skillset that can support them and their dog for years to come.

We include life skills, effective learning about the world & socialising methods as well as house training, learning to be alone, sleeping at night calmly, chewing, self control, and many others areas.A puppy consultation helps you prevent behaviour problems and can help you to give your puppy the best start, setting them up to be a well-mannered dog .The 1 1/2 to 3 hour puppy behaviour consultation is followed by a thorough dog behaviour report, relevant handouts and 4 weeks of support by phone and/or email.
