INITIAL EDUCATION

Experiences and learning in the initial phase of a dog's life are important, and consequently will shape his temperament and behaviour when in adults.

Therefore, and not only, it is crucial to start the relationship, socialization and education with your new friend in the best way.


The initial education and training sessions are adapted to each dog, however there are topics that are important to be addressed and implemented to most dogs, such as:


SOCIALIZATION

Socialize and accustom the puppy to new environments, people, dogs, objects, sounds, floors, handling for veterinary and hygiene care. 


POTTY TRAINING

Implementation of routines and techniques in the dog's learning to go potty 'in the right place'.


PREVENTION OF UNWANTED BEHAVIOURS

With environmental management and behavioural modification techniques I help the guardian manage and improve the normal behaviours of a dog, such as "nipping" (bite inhibition), bark, dig, chew, jump, among others.


INDEPENDENCE FROM THE GUARDIAN

Since dogs are social animals, it is not natural for them to be alone and confined at home.

Teaching your dog to feel calm and comfortable alone is the first step in preventing problems related to being home alone.


BASIC EDUCATION

One of the simplest ways to start developing bonds with your dog is to do activities together, one of them is training.

They will learn basic signs such as sitting, laying down, going to the 'bed' to relax, recall and knowing how to walk with a lead (among others).


PHYSICAL AND MENTAL STIMULATION

At this stage cognitive skills are developing, and activities that provide mental stimulation and play will help your puppy in solving problems and also in his memory.

My plan implements routines that provide physical and mental stimulation appropriate to each age, condition and breed, in addition, helps to prevent unwanted behaviours, such as destructive behaviours, anxiety and frustration.



BASIC SOCIAL AND CONTINUING EDUCATION

Ideal for young dogs that are still in the learning phase.

Dogs that have some kind of difficulty in the exercises already learned, such as improving the focus on the tutor or the recall.


BASIC EDUCATION

Teach basic signs such as 'sit', 'down' (with stay), go to 'bed' to relax, 'touch' (among others).


FOCUS ON THE GUARDIAN

Help your teenage dog offer and maintain more focus on you in different contexts.


LOOSE LEAD WALKING

It is natural that with so much to explore and with a different stride from ours that our dogs have a tendency to pull on the lead.

With these sessions you will have pleasant walks and without pulling.


RECALL

Having a good recall give your more freedom (in the right places ) while preventing incidents.


SOCIALIZATION

Socialization and habituation to new environments, people, dogs, objects, sounds, floors, handling for veterinary and/or hygiene care, when necessary and adapted to the case.


RELAX

Lower your dog's energy level by teaching exercises that promote calm behaviours and relaxation, in addition to implementing a daily routine of physical and mental stimulation.

INITIAL ASSESSMENT

In the initial assessment session (both in behavioural therapies and initial and basic social education) will be addressed the history, learning and behaviour(s) in question, all family and environmental interaction, what are the objectives of the guardian, recommendations on daily management, in addition to fundamental exercises to teach.



FOLLOW-UP SESSIONS

In the follow-up sessions, we will talk about the evolution of the behaviour in question and new exercises to be applied and/or taught.


In addition to the necessary demonstrations, I will guide the guardian through the exercises and provide the necessary knowledge to act with confidence when alone in everyday life.


The follow-up session is usually scheduled about 2 to 3 weeks after the initial assessment session (according to the dog's needs), to give the guardian and his dog time to adapt to the recommendations and new education/modification behavioural plan before we proceed with it.


Individual follow-up sessions can be scheduled (usually necessary) after scheduling the initial package to support and continue the behavioural modification plan.

ONLINE FOLLOW-UP

Online follow-up can be very effective, not always group classes or receiving a "strange" at home is the best option for certain dogs.


This type of follow-up and learning gives the guardian and his dog time and space to learn and evolve in their own time.


There are other methods to evaluate and modify your dog's behaviour without being in person and successfully!



VETERINARY ASSESSMENT

Many health conditions (pain, hormonal or analytical disorders, among others) can contribute to behavioural problems or unwanted behaviours.


These conditions need to be evaluated by the Assistant Veterinarian before starting the behavioural modification sessions.


The contact between the Trainer and Veterinarian is crucial for the evolution of the behaviour in question.
