Our Calm Down Canine programme helps dogs who struggle to calm around people and other dogs. These are usually friendly dogs, who just don't know how to behave when put under pressure.
Calm Down Canine Assessment appointment x 1 session of up to 90 minutes - £95
This session gives me an opportunity to assess your dog, understand more about how you got to the point you are at, and how I might be able to help you moving forward. There tends to be a lot of talking, and we work on the foundation behaviours that you need to help your dog.
If you live a further distance you may want to think about a 1/2 day, approximately 3 hour initial session at a cost of £160 plus travel. Please call to discuss.
Next steps could be support session, a pairs session alongside another dog with similar issues, or our Calm Down Canine workshops which are great for working alongside other dogs. Dogs will need at least an assessment session to work through some of the foundations before joining the group or a pairs session.
After your assessment appointment, I offer a flexible structure so that we can put together the right plan for you and your dog. You can either join in to our Calm Down Canine workshops, do some more 1 to 1, or a combination of the two. You buy some training time, and we use that up in the most appropriate way for you. Whether that is just an hour, or three, five, ten or more hours, we can divide the time up for you in the most suitable way. For example, five hours could be 5 x 1 hour sessions, or 2 x 2.5 hour sessions, or any combination in between. The minimum time for in person sessions is 45 minutes in St Just, 60 minutes at other locations and for online 30 minutes. We book in the time, but if we feel we need more time in a session, and diaries allow, we can simply use up some more minutes from your package.
£55- 1 hour / 60 minutes
£160- 3 hours / 180 minutes
£260- 5 hours / 300 minutes
£500- 10 hours / 600 minutes
Or if you would like me to put together a bespoke package, do get in touch.
Clients are encouraged to take notes during the sessions, but I will also write a brief email of any points that we have covered. Either clients or I can film short sections of the training. Often we might film a summary of what we have worked on. Note that any filming must not be broadcast or shared without written consent. I also have access to lots of videos and resources that can be sent through to you via email after sessions as applicable.From there you can book Support Sessions to help you reach your goal. Very often that means sessions out in real world environments to practice the skills that you have learnt.
Where do these sessions take place?
Sessions can be at our training centre in St Just, Last Chance Animal Sanctuary at Chacewater, online, or at your own location. If I am travelling to you, or to Chacewater as a specific journey for your training, travel costs will apply. Please ask for details.

Why choose me?
An experienced trainer and behaviour counsellor can be invaluable in getting your unruly puppy back on track, your adolescent or adult dog to focus, or your rescue to relax. It is good to get help from someone qualified in behaviour with a vast amount of experience - I have worked with thousands of dogs over the years. It's not about quick fixes, but by utilising my extensive experience and getting it right we can get quick and effective results. I offer practical and non-judgmental advice. I know how to put in emergency procedures, preventative measures, solve problems, and prevent problems from escalating. Most importantly, all training is kind to both you and your dog.
