Stranger Danger

If your dog is aggressive towards guests at your home, or barks and lunges at people out and about, I have a specially designed plan for you. My stranger danger plan guides you through the four key steps of having people visit with a reactive dog in the home, with both online sessions and in person sessions with me as your “guest”.

All of my behaviour change programs begin with an online consultation. This is a 60-75 minute online video call for $200 (plus GST) and includes the following:

  • A thorough discussion of your dog’s behaviour problem, probable causes, and likely prognosis
  • Management strategies and first steps to keep problems from escalating and keep everyone safe
  • Personalized template for behavioural wellness
  • Product recommendations/where to buy
  • Simplified first behaviour modification steps
  • Video review and feedback (You’re encouraged to submit videos prior to our meeting)
  • Body language resources
  • A letter/behaviour report for your vet, strata/homeowner’s association or Animal Control if needed
  • Pet Insurance Paperwork completion
  • Follow up package recommendations and explanation
  • Access to all information for 6 months or the full length of your behaviour modification package

Expect to schedule your first follow-up session at the end of your online consultation.  Almost all behaviour issues will require follow up sessions for successful resolution. The cost and length of the follow ups will depend on where they take place, and after our consultation I will recommend the best training package to help you meet your goals.  Both in-person and online follow ups are available, depending on preference, location and behaviour concerns.  In-person sessions will be held in Sooke or the Westshore area.  

Generally with stranger fearful dogs, we begin with some online sessions to ensure that your dog is ready to either meet me or ready to start seeing visitors to the home. After that, in person sessions help you get a solid plan in place. If you live outside the Sooke or Westshore area, we can still do in person sessions where you transfer what you learn to your own home.

Your sessions will include:

  • Management skills and games
  • Exercise and enrichment recommendations for behavioural fulfillment
  • Introducing me to your reactive dog
  • Navigating neighbourhood walks
  • Written homework uploaded to your personal Google Drive Folder
  • Video review and email support available during the package
