About our consults
One To One Help
Although we do not call ourselves behaviourists, we have a lot of experience helping dogs with behaviour problems using the Tellington TTouch method and strategies that form part of the Naughty But Nice programme developed by vet behaviourist Dr. Tom Mitchell and Lauren Langman, along with Free Work from the Ace Programme developed by Sarah Fisher.
With training, Tellington TTouch and behaviour consults, we normally recommend between 3 and 6 sessions. Using the Tellington TTouch method changes can take place over a period of time and it is important that work is done between sessions and taken at your dog’s pace.
Prior to your first session, we would ask you to complete a client case history form to give us a better idea of how we can help your dog. In the first session we will have a chat about your dog, take a look at your case history form and introduce you to the strategies that we are going to be using.
We will observe your dog move, introduce you to some of the touches and in most case have your dog move through a confidence course and/or use free work. We may also introduce you and your dog to some of the equipment that we use in TTouch including body wraps. If appropriate we may also use clicker training to help your dog or add some games to help build confidence and optimism.
We will also teach you some of the games developed by Absolute Dogs that we use to help build confidence, optimism and may another strategies to help your dog become the best they possibly can.
An initial session will be around 90 minutes and follow up sessions are usually around 45 minutes to one hour. We do not sit watching the clock the length of time is usually determined by the dog and what they can cope with. We always allow time at the end for questions.
After your first session you will receive an emailed report with notes about games and Tellington TTouch and short descriptions and diagrams of how to do some of the more popular touches, you will also be provided with various articles relating to TTouch to read and a full report on your dog, what we did in the session and suggested homework. We will also supply you with links to You Tube where you can see the touches that we demonstrated (where possible).
We have a lot of experience working with challenging dogs and are very happy to help dog-dog reactivity, as a general rule we do not take on human-biting cases, but happy to refer these you to someone suitable to help you where possible.
We can provide help at our base between Loughborough and Nottingham, and can offer home visits locally and in central London. We also offer consultation via video conference links, via Zoom. For those booking on Zoom you will receive a recording of your consultation.
