We recognise that both you and your dog are unique individuals, and what may work for one owner may not work for another. Our Gold Coast Dog Trainers are extremely experienced in problem-solving and troubleshooting and offer logical solutions to help resolve or manage problem behaviours.
WHAT IS A BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATION?
A Behaviour Consultation is an in-depth comprehensive visit to your home from one of our experienced Trainers to assist you to resolve and/or manage specific issues you may be experiencing with your dog.
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A PRIVATE LESSON AND A BEHAVIOURAL CONSULTATION?
Unlike a Private Lesson, our Gold Coast Dog Trainers will come to you. Our Private Lessons focus on your training goals as well as offer a condensed outline of group courses, whereas a Behaviour Consultation focuses exclusively on troubleshooting and/or managing undesirable behaviour or bad habits.
WHY OPT FOR A BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATION?
With dogs, there is typically an underlying reason which translates to the behaviour in question. Our Dog Trainers are highly skilled in identifying the core of the issue. This helps owners understand their dogs and why the problem is occurring in the first place. From there, our Trainers will work with the owner to develop a solution to undo the learned behaviour and/or help the owner manage the issue moving forward.
BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS CONSIST OF:
Initial phone assessment to discuss your concerns and explain your options prior to booking to ensure this is the best service for your training needs
A comprehensive visit at your home
Once we arrive, we meet with you first before we meet the dog (s) and discuss in detail your concerns
We will explain why you are experiencing the current issues; and what you will need to do to change or manage these issues
Then, we start hands-on training with you and your dog, demonstrating the techniques of any suggestions that we have made
Then it's your turn to practice what you have learned, under supervision, whilst we coach you until you feel confident to be able to continue on your own.
This visit is not time monitored. They often take between 2-3 hours, but we stay until you feel comfortable with all the training recommendations required
Upon completion, you will receive an email summarising the lesson, so you have a written plan to refer to
After your visit, we are available by phone or email if you have questions/problems and will continue to assist you with any problem-solving or troubleshooting as you progress
