Step 1: Home Visit
The backbone of all behavioural problems & solutions.
Barrie will conduct an initial 1 - 3 hour visit at your home in order to get to know you, your dog and the issues that concern you. This includes hands on assessment, and, corrective activities where required.
Well over 50% of all training needs can be addressed in just this initial session. However, where significant issues exist, or, where you are seeking focused skills or behavioural training, this initial review will form the basis of an agreed plan of activities as in STEP TWO.
Step 2: Structured Training & Skills Development.
Hands on, focussed training activity to meet your needs.
Following the initial assessment Barrie will work with you and your dog to achieve your desired results. Most behavioural issues require only a few focussed sessions in order to achieve the desired results and give you, the owner, the techniques and confidence to develop your pet into an obedient and enjoyable companion.
Under this service Barrie is also happy to help you develop or refine specific show or competition skills for your dog.
Step 3: Group Training & Pack Orientation
Orientate and harmonise your pet with other dogs or train group display activities.
Barrie has had extensive experience in training a team of dogs, large or small, in the art of display and obedience similar to that performed by the military dog display teams seen at The Royal Tournament. This is great way to truly harmonise your dog with other dogs and a fun way to train and bond with your pet. This discipline requires the total commitment of all concerned as a tremendous amount of organisation is needed to bring this to fruition. All enquiries for this service should be discussed with Barrie.MORE
