Within the main session I will travel to your home to fully assess your dog’s behaviours and then the appropriate behaviour modification plan will be advised. On the behavioural modification session we will often take a walk together if the issue requires it and I can observe your dog’s behaviour. I will offer recommendations and demonstrations in how to move forward within the programme. If the situation demands it, such as your dog is showing reactivity or aggression towards people or other dogs I can arrange to assess the behaviour in a controlled set up scenario, this being less stressful for your dog and boosts your own confidence in being able to handle day to day situations. If anyone closely involved with the dog can be present at the session this will keep everyone on the same page! I will not leave until you are happy with moving forward with your dog with the recommendations advised.
Following your appointment, a ‘Behaviour Modification Plan Report’ reiterating the advice will be sent to you which covers all aspects of your session. The plan will also contain a holistic approach for your dog, looking at dietary influences and mental and physical needs to give the best possible outcome for success within your programme and a review session will be arranged for 2-3 weeks afterwards to discuss progress.
Further support in connection with the plan is provided for 8 weeks afterwards by telephone or e-mail communication, your dogs own personal psychologist and Follow up sessions can be arranged for Yes!

“We chose Mandy because she had two rescue dogs that had caused her problems and we could relate to that! We originally got Motzi 18 months ago but when Maisie came along six months ago it became double trouble! Mandy taught us door and lead manners which both dogs picked up straight away. The next step was coping with traffic and aggression towards other dogs. Mandy gave us the tools and training to deal effectively with these situations. We are now confident owners and the dogs relate and react to this in a very positive manner. Diet tips and hierarchy within the pack were also addressed. Both dogs now play happily together and their relationship has improved immensely. We now enjoy our pets and we are in control of them rather than them of us. I cannot thank Mandy enough. Mandy has also given detailed responses and feedback and continues to do so. Extremely good value for money. I cannot recommend Mandy highly enough.”
