Practical Support (not currently available)
Alison can offer extra follow-up support sessions to assist with practical recommendations following a Behaviour Consultation. For example, this often works well where controlled “set-ups” are required for dogs who are reactive in certain environmental situations. Providing a safe and controlled environment under experienced supervision, before working up to everyday environments. We use a private and fully secure outdoor venue for safety and peace of mind.
Please bear in mind that there are no ‘quick fixes’ for behaviour issues. You will be required to commit to the treatment plan as advised by Alison and you will be encouraged to make use of follow-up support services.
