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.


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. 
We start with
 a session by phone to dicuss the unwanted behaviour of  your dog and how we will go about it. Then we will scedule the first home visit to start working the unwanted behaviour.
A unique treatment plan is devised for you to start changing your way of living with your dog, in order to adress and minimise the behaviour problems. 
This treatment plan is specific to your situation and 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 training and the life of your dog. The purpose of behavioural counselling is to make the problem manageable, aiming for a lasting solution (so no quick fix). This includes adjusting to a new way of life with your beloved dog.

In order to maximise results, you receive my personal guidance and attention throughout the implementation of the plan - so you are not alone in this process.
We remain in close contact to discuss the progress, together we check whether you are on the right track. We identify any bottlenecks and if necessary, we can adjust the plan. It's your own responsibility to keep me posted in order for me to provide the right support and coaching.
A week or two after the first home visit we will have a second one, in which we 
have follow up with possible new exercises or management and adressing  the most difficult issues. We discuss the progress to see how you and your dog are doing. Perhaps the exercises need to be changed, simplified or in any way adjusted.
