What is a consultation and why have training?

The first consultation will last approximately three hours. The consultation is carried out in or around the dog’s environment. All members of the household should ideally be present during consultations and/or training, including children, because everyone has a part to play in improving the dog’s behaviour. During this time, Jackie will gain understanding of what is causing the problem, carry out a detailed behaviour and training assessment and will then put together a tailored programme to improve the animal’s behavioural issues. During her visit, Jackie will practically show you how to carry out all aspects of the programme. All consultations will be backed up by a full written report that is emailed or posted to the client within a couple of days of the initial visit.
A follow up visit is arrange for 4 weeks after the first visit (this visit is only valid for three months from the date of the first consultation), this is a follow up visit and enables Jackie to re-assess the programme and advise for future and continued training.
