BEHAVIOUR COUNSELLING 

Does your dog display undesired behaviour?
MDogs can help you through behaviour counselling with specialist advice, knowledge and coaching.

Goals could be for example: 
-relaxed walking instead of pulling on the lead.
-no house wrecking, soiling while being alone.
-calmness instead of overactivity.
-no chasing of people, animals or traffic.
-no agression or fear towards people, animals, objects.
             

BEHAVIOUR COUNSELLING IS CUSTOMISED !

Working on behaviour of a dog is different then teaching a dog obedience skills like sit, stay or lay down.
For a dog with behavioural issues you need more then a qualified dogtrainer;
you need the expertise of a dog behaviourist to help you with changing the behaviour of your dog. 
Someone who has specialist knowledge and experience in this field and has completed a dedicated course of study for this highly responsible profession. Which means there is a difference between the education and therefor knowledge of a dogtrainer and a dog behaviourist.

A dog behaviourist helps the dog owner to gain an insight into the behaviour of his dog and provides support during the process of changing undesired behaviour to desired behaviour. In the course of behaviour counselling, both the dog and the situation are examined. The dog's behaviour problems and body language are observed, the causes are determined and a proper diagnosis is made if possible. 
A unique treatment plan is devised to solve the observed behavioural problems. 
This treatment plan is specific to your dog, since each dog is an individual and no behaviour problems or situations are entirely alike. 
Your treatment plan provides you with the necessary insights, knowledge and tools to use independently during the training of your dog. The purpose of behavioural counselling is to make the problem manageable, aiming for a lasting solution (so no quick fix).
In order to maximise results, you receive my personal guidance and attention throughout the implementation of the plan - you are not alone in this process.
During the first weeks we remain in close contact to discuss the progress. Together we check whether you are on the right track, identify any bottlenecks and if necessary, we can adjust the plan. 
Within two to three weeks after the home visit we have a second appointment, in which we discuss the progress and see how the exercises go or whether they need to be adjusted. 
After some weeks we will have an advice session by phone as an extra support. During this advice we will discuss the progress and have follow up with new exercises.

-In preparation, fill in a detailed questionnaire (if possible record a video of the behaviour).
