Until further notice this service, or a subset of it, is only available under rescue back-up, which is free of charge, although donations to the rescue would be appreciated. While this service was offered to a wider range of customers earlier this year I found it too challenging to fit in with everything else so will revisit this in 2023.
Initial phone call to discuss/agree engagement (free).
Review of information which will be requested from Client prior to consultation.
90 minute discussion by video call to discuss concerns, where guidance on behaviour, training and general care of your dog will be provided.
Written report covering the discussion giving general care advice as well as specific advice to address concerns.
Additional hours for original issues can be paid for at £20 per hour, up to 5 hours to be used within 6 months of original engagement.
Cost: £75 plus optional extra hours at £20 each - all to a dog rescue organisation / charity
I may request that the carer gets their dog vet-checked prior to a consultation, based on the background information provided. Any sudden change in behaviour could well be due to a health issue. Many behaviour issues can be caused by physical ailments.
There are no guarantees on the outcome of behaviour/training advice, while no improvement would be very unusual it is up to the carer to put in the effort and drive for the results wanted. Carers must not mix in aversive training methods which will undermine the positive training and likely lead to greater issues. The money donated to charity will be non-refundable. bark2talk will not be liable for any behaviours the dog exhibits with its carers.
