Our course 'Everyday Skills for Perfect Pooches' is designed to provide your dog with all the necessary skills they need to behave appropriately in our human world. It includes 5 one-hour classes, during which we will focus on strengthening your connection with your dog through engagement, and teaching essential life skills such as:
- handling comfort
- patience and self-control
- polite greetings
- loose leash walking
- dealing with distractions
Group classes are not suitable for dogs who may feel in any way overwhelmed on lead in an indoor space in proximity to other dogs or strangers. If you think this may be your dog, we recommend that you start with a behaviour consultation.
Everyday Skills for Perfect Pooches - €175
Saturdays at 1pm at the Happy Dog House, Kimmage
We recommend booking a behaviour consultation for the following issues:
- aggressive behaviour (toward other dogs and/or people)
- fearful/anxious behaviour
- 'reactive' behaviour
- guarding behaviour
- isolation and/or separation distress
- noise sensitivity
- excessive barking
Our behaviour programs help you understand your dog's behaviour and provides you with support and guidance throughout your and your dog's learning journey.
During the initial consultation I will collect information about your dog's behaviour to assess the root of the issue, provide you with recommendations to reduce incidents of your dog feeling overwhelmed and prevent the reoccurrence of the problem behaviour(s), and devise a behaviour modification plan to suit you and your dog's needs.
I also offer a Zoom option for the initial consultation as it often does not require me to be there in person.
Initial consultation: €150 in person / €100 zoom
Follow up sessions: €100 in person / €80 zoom
