All behaviour modification therapy programmes are based on
positive association principles.
After a usually detailed initial telephone conversation, a consultation will be arranged in your own home.
A Veterinary health check may be necessary before the consultation.
Helen works towards providing a calm, positive learning environment.
Video recordings can be very helpful to view on the day.
During consultations, Helen will help you learn about your dog’s challenging behaviour and how to make improvements.
Helen implements a therapy programme showing you how to improve behaviour and provide a secure learning platform for your dog.
The therapy programme is tailored specifically to your dog and you.
A variety of positive techniques encouraging a calm and willing mental attitude from your dog.
Graded positive experiences are employed to improve your dog’s experience and coping skill.
Appropriate mental stimulation, focus and positive response using treats or toys will be implemented.
You can often see a difference in your dog’s behaviour during the first session, which can then be built upon, but all owners are reminded that behaviour changes can be slow and gradual and progress can depend on the individual.
Many owners have found the experience improves their confidence immeasurably, helping to build a better bond between them and their dog.
Following a consultation, a report of what has been covered during the session and how to progress, is written in detail for you, for reference purposes. After consultation, follow up sessions are usually booked to maintain progress, or until the owner is confident in progressing with reports via email or telephone.
Behaviour modification can sometimes mean lifestyle changes for you and your dog, that shouldn’t stop as soon as improvements can be seen.
Additional classes when appropriate for general obedience training, including agility and parkour in an outdoor setting can be recommended with Sophia Taylor, at 'On The Scent' www.onthescent.co.uk
