An intensive 21-day training programme for your pooch. Our behaviourists are specialists in supporting dogs with fear or anxiety (that often leads to aggression), and they will work with your dog on an individual basis. Each day, we will assess your dog’s results from the previous day to decide on the next steps to take. We will work at your dog’s pace, as it’s crucial that we provide an opportunity to advance, but not too many big steps are taken at once, to achieve the best results. We aim to advance in two main areas:
Desensitising: We desensitize the dogs so that they feel differently about the problem, for example, other dogs in the case of dog to dog aggression. For example, if your dog arrives and is a 9 out of 10 on a scale of aggressiveness, we will work to reduce this to 1 or 2. With some younger dogs, this can even be reduced to 0!
Trust: Our trainers will also work to stop dog aggression by teaching your dog to trust them and follow cues. The outcome when they learn to follow cues correctly is, the situation has passed and the dog has enjoyed the rewards that come with behaving well! The dogs learn that they don’t need to make difficult decisions themselves- just follow the trainer (and eventually owner) and all will be ok!
