If you live in Brittany
+ You want to train your dog or resolve his/her behavioural problems
+ You don’t speak French or prefer English
I can help
I can provide one-to-one training sessions at your home or in the park. I use force-free, up-to-date and effective training methods, including ‘clicker training’. These sessions are usually for straight forward training solutions such as leash training, recall or other basic obedience. We can also work on specific projects, such as assistance work or medical training. The latter involves helping your dog to cope better with medical care.
If you experience more complex behavioural problems, a more detailed and thorough consultation is necessary (see behaviour problems below).
Training session: 45€/ hour + 0,40€/km if you live outside my area (see the map in informations pratiques).
PUPPY LIFE SKILLS
All you need to get your puppy off to a good start. The puppy life skills course teaches basic obedience, helps you deal with behaviours such as excessive mouthing, and teaches you how to socialise your puppy (how to greet and enjoy being around other animals, people, cyclists…). You will also learn how to introduce your puppy to new objects, sounds and places, in order to prevent fearful behaviours.
45€/ hour + 0,40€/km if you live outside my area (see the map in informations pratiques).
The initial session is a consultation during which I will perform a behaviour analysis. We discuss your problems in detail as well as possible treatment plans. I will do my best to tailor these plans to your needs and your companion’s.
Following this session, I will send you a report with a written treatment plan. You may be able to work on it by yourself or a training session may be required.
Initial consultation = 60€/ hour + 0,40€/km if you live outside my area (see the map in informations pratiques).
Examples of behaviour problems commonly consulted on:
- Aggression towards people (including guardians), children, dogs or other animals
- Fighting with another household pet
- Aggression around the food bowl or toys

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any question. If you would like to book an appointment, please send me an email or a message via my facebook page, with details regarding your dog and the problems you are facing.
