“How enlightening! Everything was completely specific to Shadow, her behaviours and our concerns. It was amazing how quickly she started responding; she was listening better, she was less skittish around other dogs, she stopped digging and comes when we call her. We now have the freedom to take her where ever we go without hassle or concern. The best part is how happy Shadow is – she’s blossomed!
Thank you , you have made a world of difference!”
“Yullie and Rex are becoming great friends fast and there seems to be no issues between them. I am sure in a few weeks time they will be the best of friends. Thank you for all your help. Your advice and know-how have really been instrumental in getting these two on board with each other.

What a consultation consists of
Consultations are done at your home for your convenience and so that I can see and discuss the details of your dog's behaviour/s with you. By the end of the session your dog will be on their road to recovery and you will understand how to help them as they continue to recover or improve.
A straightforward behaviour-modification plan is put into place and training is done where necessary. A plan typically consists of a few simple changes that need to implemented and maintained for a few days or weeks, depending on the severity or intensity of the problem. The behaviour/s then duly improve and stop. As each case is different, there will be a specific plan and/or training schedule for each different dog/family.
One on one consultation or training in your dog or puppy's familiar home environment means that more can be covered in a shorter space of time, cutting down on the amount of repeat sessions necessary.
Positive reinforcement methods are used and encouraged in training.
How long it lasts
Consultations and training sessions typically last for around 1.5 hours.
How long before results are seen
Depending on the severity or complexity of your dog/s' behaviours, it usually takes from between a few days to a few weeks for the the behaviour/s to disappear. In most cases, an almost immediate improvement is obvious.
Guarantee that the problem will go a way
Undesired behaviours are usually eliminated successfully and completely in the days the follow the consultation. If all relevant information; details surrounding the behaviour as well as the pet's history and a few specifics about the individual is provided during the session, the correct behaviour modification plan simply needs to be implemented.
The cost for a consultation is R750 irrespective of how many behavioural issues exist or the training required. For behavioural issues one, or sometimes two sessions are typically sufficient.
Where the session calls more for training than consultation, two sessions will likely be necessary. All follow-ups are charged at R550 and last for around an hour.
