BEHAVIOUR & TRAINING
We have helped many clients over the years with a wide range of behavioural problems including:
Aggressive behaviour towards other dogs, or people
High arousal / over excitability
Fears and phobias
Separation related disorders
Mouthing / biting
General poor obedience including:
Jumping up, pulling on lead, unreliable recall
Every client and dog are individual, therefore we firmly believe that a "one size fits all" approach is usually not effective
in reducing or eliminating unwanted behaviours. It is important therefore that we understand the individual,
and provide a behaviour plan which is realistic and easily achievable; simplifying the situation, and removing the pressure.
A behaviour plan consists of an initial consultation at your home, usually lasting around two hours,
enabling us to ask and also answer many questions, and to demonstrate some practical strategies to get you started straight away.
In some cases we may want to witness the behaviour/s in question, and in others, not.
The consultation may then be followed up with a written report; a summary of everything we have discussed, and step-by-step instructions
for the training strategies required, and a copy sent to your vet. Often one or two follow up sessions are then provided.
In some cases however, there may be no need for a report, and follow up sessions may or may not be necessary.
Please get in touch to discuss your requirements further and book your consultation, we work both with or without veterinary referral.
Dog Hollow offers private, one-to-one training at your home and in the London parks.
Some clients have attended our puppy school, and wish to continue training into tricky adolescence,
and others may want to work on specific behaviours, or basic obedience skills, and strengthening the owner-dog bond.
We are very happy to discuss your individual requirements, so please get in touch.
