​​​​​How many sessions will it take?

This depends entirely on each individual case. No two dogs are the same, and no two dog owners are the same! You will be required to undertake some of the work in your own time - if you don't put in the work; it will take longer to fix. We recommend a minimum block booking of 4 sessions, and perhaps a further 'top up' session if needed. It is rare for anything to be cured in an hour!

Following the first session, how long before I see improvements?

This will be dependent on a variety of factors including the extent and duration of the problem and how much time you are able to spend working with your dog. We are there to advise and assist as much as is required but you are your dog’s primary role model and teacher. It is often the consistency of the owners that is the best predictor of the rate of improvement.
Many owners will see initial improvements relatively quickly (within a few weeks). However, due to the complexity of many behaviour problems, working on the treatment programme is likely to span months rather than weeks. In some cases full resolution of the problem is not possible although dog and owner can often live happily with the improvements and management systems put in place during the treatment programme.

Where does the training take place?

The first session is always conducted in your own home allowing us to see your dog in the environment he/she is most comfortable in. This also enables us to discuss in detail the dogs history and the problems you are having, whilst being able to assess the dog's general disposition and relations with the household members.
Subequent sessions will be arranged to suit the requirments of your behaviour modification and/or training programme - we can continue working with your dog at home, or at The Dogworks Training Academy or in another relevant environment in order to practice with "real-life" distractions and stimulants.
