Private behaviour consultations
Doggone Pawsitive’s head trainer Shelley Hunter is highly recommended by area veterinarians for her work with dogs in private and group training.
Private behaviour consultations are a good fit for those owners who have the time and the interest to be involved in training their dogs. We will meet you and your family for private one-on-one sessions to deal with any challenges you may be having. We can help with everything from puppy issues such as nipping, chewing & housetraining to leash pulling, jumping, running away. barking, guarding food or objects, aggression toward people or other dogs, fearful or anxious behaviour, noise phobias, separation anxiety and more.
Our practical support and coaching can help you get your dog on the right track - right away.
Sessions are one hour each and generally take place in your family's home or the location where the dog needs to practice ie. the park for dogs who are distracted by people or dogs. We start by assessing the dog's behaviour. Then each session we demonstrate exercises that will help solve the problems and then we get the family involved in practicing the exercises. As part of our professional service - we provide you with homework plans and support material so you know what to practice in between lessons.
Length and Pricing: Customized for each family - depending on the situation.
We want to provide the highest level of personal care and training for your furry family members and to ensure there is sufficient space for your dog. In essence, through booking into daycare, private lessons, doggy nanny 9-1-1 or classes, you are reserving a spot for your dog in that service. In light of this, there is no cash value for daycare memberships or for lessons not completed. All services are non-refundable, non-transferable once payment is made/or first session attended. We also regret we cannot extend expiry dates on services as our staffing is booked accordingly. If there is no expiry stipulated on the service you purchase, we are happy to offer you one calendar year from the commencement of the service to complete the service.
