Method

In order to be able to make a good assessment of the behaviour and to give tailored advice, we work with at least 2 appointments. There will be quite a lot of information and experience had thought us that at least 2 appointments are needed to convey all the information correctly and to achieve a successful behavioral change.

Introductory meeting

We would like to meet you by phone beforehand. Because the packages can be quite intense, we would like to talk in advance. This allows you to ask your questions, tell us about the situation and get to know our methods. Then we can decide whether or not we will work together.

Behavioral analysis

You will receive an extensive questionnaire which will be thoroughly analyzed before the appointment. Additional searches may be needed insure that you get the best guidance possible.
Afterwards, there will be a home visit of about 2 hours with behavioral analysis where we will ask and look at the situation. Based on this information, an analysis is made with the probable causes and influences of the behavior.

Plan of action with homework

Based on the behavioral analysis, a tailor-made treatment plan is developed. This is also delivered to you in writing and will be the basis for your homework. If time permits, we start with the first steps of the training or modifications.

Follow-up visit

During this visit the new situation will be examined and progress will be discussed. The further steps in the treatment or training are taken and you get further advice and tips on how you can optimize this situation.

Depending on the progress, additional follow-up sessions may be required.

We insist on giving you as owner more insight into the cause of the behavior. Experience teaches us that when you as an owner understand why your dog behaves in a certain way, this ensures more patience and tolerance throughout the training. This will ensure better and faster results.
