Service Description

Every single dog we see is assessed and trained on the basis of what it requires as an individual and our 1-2-1 sessions are tailored to educate both dog and owner. We charge our behavioural assessments at £195 per dog (being assessed) and the balance is payable at the time of booking. The assessment includes a full written report, recommendations and a 45 minute follow up 1-2-1. Depending on the behaviour, the assessment may take place at the Club or at the owners home. It will last at least an hour as we need to see the behaviour first hand, discuss the entire known history of the dog's life and experiences, as well as seeing your relationship with and handling of your dog. Based upon the outcome of the assessment and how you wish to proceed we will then recommend and tailor the dogs training to suit the specific issues. Sometimes this can be as simple as recommending group obedience classes or some 1-2-1 sessions to modify the specific behaviour. Difficult cases sometimes require some kind of daytime residential sessions where the dog is initially left with us, with the owner introduced when necessary. There are no guarantees that a dogs behaviour modification will succeed in eliminating the behaviour issue, so sometimes it is enough to diminish the behaviour to a point where it is more manageable. To succeed in modifying any dogs behaviour it requires commitment and persistence from the owner. Home visits will incur additional travel charges based upon distance time/involved. We can take Veterinary Referrals for behaviour issues you can put through your Pet Insurance. If you have Pet Insurance, your insurer may be willing to pay for any necessary behaviour consultation and in certain circumstances also pay for any subsequent training required. It is however worth checking with your specific insurer first. In all circumstances, your vet must make the referral.
