Consultations are conducted in the comfort of your own home. Here I can see your dogs' behavior in their normal home environment. During the consultation I will teach you the method of Canine Communication, and how to apply it to your own dog. I will also cover the specific behavioural problems you are experiencing with your dog and show you how to deal with these.
Following on from the consultation you will receive full back up by phone or e-mail for as long as it is needed to help you apply the method correctly.
