Dog Behaviour Consultations
For Anxiety, Fear, Aggression, and other serious issues in Melbourne Dogs
Underdog Training & Behaviour Consulting can assist you with more serious problems with in house behavioural consultations. Many dogs and owners experience these problems so please don’t think you’re the only one! Many dog owners struggle with their dogs behaviour problems and the good news is that you don’t have to any longer! Behaviour problems occur for a wide range of reasons and resolution of such problems is vital not just for you but also for your dogs well being.
We specialise in tailoring practical, holistic solutions that address the cause of the behaviour problems as well as the symptoms. It’s never too late to start training- for you or your dog! Working within your home helps to minimize the stress and maximize learning and allows us to accurately assess and diagnose the problem itself. The solution to your behaviour problem may involve training exercises to build confidence or teach self control, looking at diet and exercise requirements and much more.
Consultations are 1 ½ or 2 hours in length so that we can properly assess your dog and the situation as well as discussing your expectations and what you would like the dog to be able to do or stop doing. We then discuss the most appropriate options and show you the practical techniques you can start to use to resolve the problems you experience.
After an initial behaviour consultation, follow up sessions may or may not be required- your Underdog trainer will discuss the best plan to ensure your progress is steady. Behaviour problems are unlikely to be resolved over night but the right training will get you well on your way to achieving your goals. Email follow up and phone follow ups are included in the cost of a behavioural consultation to ensure questions do not need to be left until your next session.
