Prices inclusive of a visit to your home, travel costs, a tailored rehabilitation programme/training plan, and one month's free telephone/email support.​

Behaviour Consultation

Initial consultations require a home visit. This allows me to assess your dog in the home environment, complete a functional analysis, and determine the best course of rehabilitation.

Consultations are followed by a written report and tailored rehabilitation programme.

Free telephone/email support is provided for 1 month.

£105 for one dog

£140 for two dogs

Training

There are a number of reasons why group classes may not be suitable for everyone; dogs or owners.  

My 1:1 training includes basic cues, loose lead walking, recall, puppy behaviours (toilet training, bite inhibition, impulse control etc.), and considered and fear free introductions to socialisation. Training sessions take place in your home (and/or outside in your local area), free of the distractions and worry that can often come with attending a group class. Ideal for dogs and owners requiring a gentle introduction to training and socialisation.

Training sessions are followed by a written training plan.

Free telephone/email support is provided for 1 month.

£55 for one dog

£75 for two dogs

Dog to Dog Reactivity

Suitable for dog to dog and dog to human reactivity.

Initial consultations require a home visit, plus two 45 minute outdoor sessions in your local area - per individual dog. 

Consultations are followed by a written report and tailored rehabilitation programme.

Free telephone/email support is provided for 1 month.

£185 for one dog

£245 for two dogs

(For practical and safety reasons, only one dog at a time will be permitted to attend the outdoor sessions).

Nail Care Workshops

I know firsthand that maintaining your dog's nails at home can be a daunting task for both of you, and that taking your dog to a professional for this service isn't necessarily any less stressful!

My 1:1 Nail Care Workshop aims to help you feel more relaxed and confident about maintaining your dog's nails, and your dog feel more relaxed and confident about you doing it. 

The workshop covers:

* choosing a tool that's comfortable for both you and your dog (it doesn't have to be clippers)

* the basics of nail care and its importance to your dog's overall health

* introducing your dog to your chosen tool

* introducing your dog's toes to your chosen tool

* sensitivity to touch

* understanding your dog's body language and communication

* keeping it fun and fear free

£30 per workshop
