Servicing Whistler Monthly
The last Thursday of every month we offer behaviour consultations and follow up sessions to current clientele.
If you are facing severe behaviour concerns with your canine companion a behaviour consultation and follow up session can address these challenges and give you the tools for lasting change.
Some of the behaviours we address::
- resource guarding
- dog-dog reactivity
- newly adopted from a different country
Initial consultation and follow up is $245 + gst.
Your consultation follow up session can be booked via this link. Consult Follow Up
Top-up single sessions for prior and current clients $85 + gst. Schedule Appointment
How long are the sessions?
Sessions typically last 60 minutes in duration
What can we expect at our first session?
Our first session is a foundation session, we will have lots to discuss about the challenges you are having and you will need to have a thorough understanding of important concepts for lasting change. You will also start training with your dog during this session.
Why does the consultation require a follow up?
A lot can be lost in translation from your first session and it’s my job to ensure that you are making progress and that the key concepts and training we went over at our consultation are being executed correctly.
Where are the sessions?
Sessions take place in your home in the Whistler area or outdoors weather permitting
What approach do you take with your training?
Applied behavior analysis is the process of systematically applying interventions, based upon the principles of learning theory, to improve socially significant behaviours to a meaningful degree. I adhere to LIMA, the least intrusive, minimally aversive approach to training.
I do not employ the use of choke chains, prong collars, shock or “e-collars”, physical force or intimidation. Numerous competent studies point to the side effects, the ineffective results and increased aggression.
