Behaviour Consults are a great way to teach your dog good behaviour. Behavioural problems may be a result of lack of training or breed specifics. However, it is never too late to teach an old dog new tricks!
How do Behaviour Consults work?
Behaviour consults are booked at the Woodend Veterinary Centre, where reception details the problems that are experienced by the owner and their dog.
In her extensive experience, Jennie Kyritsis has found that dogs will behave in various ways, depending on the breed (and the owner’s knowledge of how their chosen breed behaves) workload, (both physically and mentally) and prior training.
Jennie communicates with the owner, ensuring she fully understands the depth of the problem and how best to approach the situation. The session includes talking with pet owners initially and observing the dog, followed by demonstrating relevant training techniques.
The session will vary depending on the dog and what particular issue they are experiencing.
Duration: 1 hour sessions.
Where: Sessions are conducted in home (which is preferable as most initial training conducted in a familiar environment is far more beneficial). However, if requested by the owner, the session can also be held in the clinic.
Clinic Session Price: $120 (one hour session)
Call Out Session Price: $120 (one hour session) + $1.75 per kilometre (there & back)
