TRAINING WITH KIRSTY
Dog Behaviour Home Visits
Home Visits/ One to One training lasts between
1.5 - 2 hours. Together we cover all areas of training that you are having issues and problems with, both in the house and outside. These issues can range from:
Over-excitement, toilet training, dog on people aggression, dog on child aggression, food protection issues, dog on dog aggression, recall issues (not coming back off the lead and chasing), heel work, severe anxiety, separation issues, noise phobias, unwanted barking etc.
During the session we will go through various questions and practical training and get to the bottom of the actual issues causing these problems. I then develop a new routine for each individual dog behaviour case and develop a programme for you to follow to get you back on the correct path! As everyone's life is different I also make sure that each routine can realistically fit in with your day to day living.
This session costs £25 (if you are out of the area it may cost extra for petrol charges) and comes with a full written report programme covering everything we have gone through on the day (so no risk of getting confused or forgetting things!) and I also provide a follow up call a week and a half later.
All training is done through positive training, to help the dog get used to positive associations made with the training. This is instead of negative methods such as; shouting, throwing things in front of the dog, squirting it with water etc. Unfortunately there is still a lot of this old fashioned training around and while some believe it works generally it is just a short term solution to under lying issues and it may in fact cause more damage to the dog over a period of time.
I also use alternative therapies, especially when there are anxiety issues. This technique has a wonderful effect when run along side a training regime. I have used this method with many of the rescue dogs that I have worked with.
1 Hour Training Session Outside
This session is aimed at specific issues, sometimes a follow up to the home visit if issues are severe or for you to see how the dog reacts in a busier environment with some guidance.
The session is aimed at lead control (extreme excitement around people, other dogs and pulling) or learning how to socialise more around certain objects. The session takes place at a couple of locations where we can meet up safely. The session lasts one hour and costs £15, but reports are not included during this session.
Recall / Heel work Sessions 1 Hour
This session is just for dogs that have no other issues apart from running off and not coming back or pulling on the lead when out. This session lasts one hour and costs £15. This session is just dealing with one of these issues if every other area is ok.
If you are thinking of getting a puppy or have a young puppy and you are struggling to know which direction to go in then this session will answer all those questions.
We start by planning a good routine to start your dog off on, talk about diets, crate training, toilet training, sleeping arrangements, getting used to a collar/harness and lead, teething etc.
We then start some basic training to practice with your new puppy and some fun stimulation games.
This session costs £25 with a full written report is sent to you and you will receive a follow up call.
This takes place in a local field in the summer months. An update should follow shortly, so please keep checking.

My three dogs Boo,Blue and little Pepe (struggling to keep up!)
All three of my dog's are rescue dog's and one was an extreme cruelty case. Remember it can take time when training a rescue dog and patience, but worth every minute once you see the results that you can make. It's very rewarding knowing that you can make a difference!
