Dog Training Consults.
Lifeline Dogs offers private 1-1 sessions with you and your family to discuss what you are currently experiencing with your dog. This session is in your home so that issues can be discussed and your dog can begin to learn new skills in a place they are comfortable in, and has minimal distractions. We can then move on to sessions in environments that you are experiencing difficulties in and where we can apply the new skills. This type of training can help with general obedience, over-excited dog, trick training, fear, aggression and many other problems.
Handling a difficult dog that has problems can be frustrating, disheartening, and sometimes life changing. With my support you will further develop your skills to help your dog move forward in a positive direction, and leave the unwanted behaviours behind. Dog training is as much about us adopting an approach that will help the individual dog, as it is about the dog learning better behaviours.
Using the correct equipment with a least intrusive, minimally aversive approach, you will have the opportunity to provide your dog confidence builders in the environment/situation that is currently causing problems.
Initial 1-1 Consultation
This first meeting is necessary for me to gain an understanding to what your dog is experiencing, and exploring new directions that could be taken in order for your dog to start showing desired behaviours.
By the end of the session you will have gained a deeper insight into how your dog is communicating with you and have a training plan to work with. My one to one sessions include personal coaching so that you have tools that can be used to help you feel more in control whilst you are with your dog. With on going education in life coaching techniques, I can help your explore your inner world and relationship with your dog.
Practical 1-1 Sessions
These sessions are to practise new skills and behaviours that would have been looked at in the initial consultation. Dependent on what we are focusing on in sessions, will determine where they will take place. The sessions provide a controlled environment for the dog to build confidence in the situation that causes stress, e.g meeting dogs.
Training in an environment that allows us to control the situation, lets us set the dog up for success and keep the session at a level where the dog is comfortable, instead of overwhelming them. If necessary training plans can be amended at this time.
