DOG BEHAVIOUR & TRAINING
Specialising in Dogs with Walking & Anxiety Issues
Are you worried your dog has anxiety related issues?
Do you avoid walking your dog because it is too stressful - or even embarrassing?
WE CAN HELP.
Here at Animal Magic Family we offer an exceptional 1-2-1 improvement service, with long term
support for you and your beloved friend. Through our bespoke one to one walking and
residential programmes we provide you with the results you long to see.
Owning an anxious dog is far from easy. You can't go out anywhere without worrying what you might find when you return home. You can’t simply just enjoy the pleasures of a normal walk anywhere in public.
You are often made out to be a bad dog owner or told yours is being naughty.
This is rarely the case.
Here’s how we can help you...
Through our unique, ongoing, success programmes we are here to coach, mentor and offer you
emotional support, every step of the way.
We only take on 2 new clients a month who are committed to our longer term support programmes.
This ensures you get unrivalled support and positive results that last!
Dog Walking for Improvement Training Programme
This programme is ideal for you if your dog:
Pulls on the lead
Is easily distracted by others
Reacts (barks / pulls / jumps up / spins) to people / other dogs / vehicles
Has poor recall / chases other dogs and / or wildlife when off lead
Through 6 one to one sessions we are confident you will see positive changes after just one
month - though to see long lasting results we recommend commitment for at least 3 months.
(we will advise as appropriate following your consultation and assessment)
Our "Dog Walking for Improvement" training programme is £295.00 and includes:
1 x 60-90 minute outdoor consultation and assessment with you and your dog
4 x 60 minute training / walking sessions
1 x 60 minute coaching session with you (following training session 4)
Support via email and video critique throughout the duration of your package
Optional Extra: 4 x 60 minute reinforcement sessions per week - £250.00
This programme lasts for 1 calendar month and must be paid for prior to your consultation
and assessment. If we find that we are unable to help you at any point during your consultation,
the full amount you have paid will be refunded to you immediately.
Please bear in mind that it is very rare for any behavioural issue to be resolved in less
than a month - and for our training to be effective you MUST follow our advice and
provide consistent efforts yourself. If you are not prepared to back up our improvement
training please do not expect anything to change with your own walks!
NB: Once we have progressed past your consultation and onto Training Walk 1;
our fees are non-refundable - unless we need to cancel or postpone for any reason.
Residential Improvement for Anxiety Programme
We also specialise in helping improve a range of anxiety issues which may be troubling your dog, such as:
Former abandonment / rescue anxiety
Former abuse anxiety
Anxiety around people
Anxiety around other dogs
Our residential programmes are suited for nervous or anxious dogs who need individual attention whilst you are at work - or who need ongoing rehabilitation and training.
Our Improvement for Anxiety Programme is a week long residential course, along with a package of ongoing advice and support - which will aim to significantly improve your dogs anxiety. We only take one dog at a time on our residential course, so you can be assured that your dog will receive the best in care, training and consistency whilst with us.
Training will take place in a variety of every day scenarios, and most importantly - your dog will be welcomed into our family as one of our own! We can send daily pictures, videos - and even hold a FaceTime or Zoom video call for you to say goodnight if you wish :-)
Your dog should be dropped off on a Monday morning, and collected on a Friday evening. Upon your Friday arrival we will run a 60 minute coaching session with you; following which our supporting notes will be emailed to you for your own use. If you live locally and would prefer your dog to return home at night, this is ok! We do however recommend at least one stay over.
The cost is £395.00 per week - or £295.00 per week if a longer period is needed and agreed at
the time of booking. Unless the issues are very new, it is unlikely that your concerns
will be eradicated within one week.
All potential guests will be assessed in the first instance - ideally at both your home and ours.
However, if social distancing measures are still in place - or you live further afield, we can
conduct this assessment to the best of our ability via phone or Zoom call.
Full payment must be made prior to the commencement of your booking.
Follow Up Support
Once your initial Improvement programme is complete, you will have the option to commit to:
Ongoing email support with 2 x full day in house reinforcement / enrichment sessions per month - £150.00
Ongoing email support with 1 x 60 minute 1-2-1 or accompanied training walk per month - £95.00
Ongoing email support only - £55.00 per month
We highly recommend that you visit your vet for a full heath check (detailing your concerns to your vet) prior to contacting any behaviourist / trainer. It is not at all uncommon for behavioural issues
to occur as a result of pain, lack of exercise - or malnutrition.
All notes taken along the duration of our training programmes will be emailed to you, which will be useful to refer to when you are working alone with your dog. Always remember consistency and routine are 2 of the most important aspects of your dogs training and every day life.
We do not offer single training sessions - simply because it will be a waste of your time and money!
