If you have never worked with a professional trainer before, more particularly one who follows the methods of the famous dog whisperer, Cesar Millan, you may not know quite what to expect when we visit your home. Let us begin by telling you that we only use kind, loving training methods to achieve results; for more information on exactly how we go about rehabilitating problem dogs, please read the section below. Alternatively, you can call or email us at any time.
Working with the Experts in Dog Training in Reigate
Every animal is unique but our methods of working remain largely unchanged, no matter what problems we may be tackling. That is not to say that we do not use different techniques to deal with different animals and different behavioural issues but rather that we treat each individual dog with love and a caring, firm hand, no matter what they may be having difficulties with. Whenever we are called to help an owner in Reigate to rehabilitate their pet, we follow a process similar to that outlined below.
- Listening to your concerns in detail – Your first consultation, by telephone, is completely free of charge. We offer all new clients the opportunity to discuss their issues in detail before making any kind of commitment because we want you to be sure that we are the right dog trainers for you. You can also ask us any questions you may have about the methods that we use during the initial consultation.
- Observing Your Dog in Its Home Environment – If you would like us to help you rehabilitate your dog, the next stage involves a home visit. During this visit, we will have the opportunity to observe your pet in its home environment and look for signs of what is causing it to misbehave. As domesticated dogs are still 99.9% wolf, DNA-wise, the underlying cause of their misbehaviour is very often a lack of leadership in the home.
- Discussing Possible Training Methods – Once we have discovered the root cause of your pet’s misbehaviour, we will be in a position to advise you of the best techniques to use in order to complete his or her rehabilitation. Only after explaining what is involved in our suggested methods and having gained your approval will we start the training in earnest.
- Successful Completion of Training – After your dog has started to respond positively to the training he or she is receiving, we will normally only continue conducting sessions until you are confident that you can take over. The ultimate goal, in all cases, is to give back control to the owner and enable you to finish the rehabilitation yourself.
Although our goal is to ensure that you are capable of finishing the dog training in Reigate that we start, there is no need to worry that we will leave you high and dry at any stage of the process. We never consider a job finished until the client is 100% satisfied.
