We all get excited about bringing home a new addition to the family. A one-to-one puppy home start consultation ensures all family members, two and four legged get off to the best possible start together.
The consultation is carried out in the comfort of your own home and can be arranged for a time to suit you. This ensures I can offer tailored advice to suit your circumstances, this might include safe interactions with children or other four legged family members.
During a Puppy home start consultation we discuss all things puppy. How best to deal with normal puppy behaviours such as mouthing and jumping up. Together we will work on the challenges of house training, keeping your dog safe around the home and garden, introduction of novel situations and the introduction of clicker training to teach basic exercises such as sit, down, come when called.
I only work with proven, kind reward based training methods so your puppy learns in a positive way and offers behaviours because they want to. This builds up a strong and lasting bond between you and your puppy, therefore leading to a long and loyal relationship together.
I offer these consultations for clients within a 15 mile radius of Reading, I am happy to travel further afield but a modest mileage mileage charge will apply. As part of the consultation you will also receive a clicker and written notes to begin your training.
Nicole came to visit us when we got our new Labrador puppy Lily. We already had an established dog aged 7 years, who Nicole was familiar with and we wanted expert advice on settling them in together.
Nicole came to our house a week after Lily arrived and watched the interaction between the two dogs. This was an extremely useful exercise for the family as she was able to advise us on things to watch for eg body language, tail wagging etc
We felt a lot more comfortable after spending a good couple of hours in the company of Nicole and learnt a great deal about how to manage certain situations that may or may not arise.
After the visit Nicole is always willing to give any further advice and is easily contactable by phone or email.
