Step 4

Step 1: What does the Assessment Involve?

The purpose of the initial behaviour assessment is to thoroughly go through the history and behaviour of your dog with a fine tooth comb. Prior to the assessment you will be asked to complete a behaviour questionnaire (link below) about your dog, which will give your instructor a chance to brief themselves and prepare for the assessment.  

You will discuss the entire history of your dog, from the very beginning of what you know to the present date, exactly when the behaviour first appeared and the events surrounding it that may have been an influence. The problem itself will be discussed, exactly what happens and the various occurrences of it. Throughout the assessment your dog will be constantly assessed on the behaviour it is showing in the environment. If the issue is with dogs, various dogs will be brought in to assess the response of your dog. By the end of the assessment, you can expect to understand exactly why your dog is behaving how he/she is. You will learn some management techniques to prevent the problem getting worse and you will be advised what training you need to get your dog on the road to a safe, confident and happy life. 

Your assessment  will be followed with an email containing everything that has been discussed so you don't need to worry about taking in all of the information. The assessment lasts for approx 45minutes and is held at our training centre on Sutton Fields. Please note we dont offer home training sessions.
