For help with basic care needs, such as nail clipping, putting harnesses on and off, towel drying or grooming. These clinics are for building positive associations with our handling interactions for you and your dog. We will demonstrate the techniques of cooperative care where you can either train at home or you can book follow on sessions and we will train for you.  Follow on session cost 

Which service do you need to book?

You will need a behaviour consult for problem behaviours such as barking and lunging at other dogs or people, destructive or anxious behaviours when left alone, guarding food or toys or any aggressive behaviours.  If your problem is general training, such as pulling on the lead or recall please see our training page.  If you are still unsure if you need a behaviour consult or training one to one send us a message with some brief details on the contact form and we can direct you to the most appropriate service.  If you would like to chat your worries through before booking, you can opt for one of the triage appointments initially.  After our discussions, if you decide to book, you will receive a partial refund of the cost of your triage appointment.
