how behaviour relief consults work

CleverPawz visits your home (or virtual consult) to meet you and your dog, undertake an assessment, educate you on understanding behaviour from the dog’s perspective, and then recommend a personalised plan that you can both work on together to address the behavioural needs.  For busier lifestyles, I can do the training for you!  Training is reward-based positive training (put the link in here).

 

Initial consultation $190 for 1.5 hours plus travel fee.  This includes video follow up of the training, email and attachments summarising the consult.  At the consultation, you will also be provided with a portfolio of information and training tips.

 

Follow up sessions $150 per hour or a pre-paid package of 3 sessions $360 or 5 sessions $600 (plus travel) because behaviour does not generally resolve itself in one session.

Day Training

Want accelerated results for a polite, well-trained dog?

 

CleverPawz comes to you for in-home day training, in your office or wherever.  Together we work out what training and behaviours are important for your lifestyle.  Training may also be out and about for real-life experiences.

 

Quick and easy solutions with a professional qualified trainer suitable for owners with busy lifestyles, working pet parents, those that are unable or do not enjoy the training process.  Great also for puppy socialisation especially during the critical socialisation period.

 

 

Note:  No training is 100% guaranteed.  It depends on the variables, environmental conditions and maintaining behaviours.

how Day Training works

Typically, it all starts with an initial Behaviour & Training Plan and then a number of sessions determined by the goals of the plan, wrapping up with hand-over sessions to show the client how to proof and maintain the behaviour.  After the designated number of weeks, several follow up sessions are recommended to ensure long term success. Customised programs are available short or long-term:  2, 3, 4 weeks or longer tailored to suit your lifestyle.
