HOW WE WILL BE WORKING: RULES AND PRINCIPLES
🦴Guided by the principle of “Do no harm”, my approach is based on up-to-date researches in animal science and only modern reward-based methods with proven effectiveness.
🦴Since aversive methods of working with dogs are now generally recognized as inhuman, ineffective and causing extremely dangerous consequences for the dog's behavior and well-being, I strictly insist not to use anything that might cause physical or emotional pain to your dog. In case of breaking this rule, I reserve a right to stop my work immediately without any obligaions from my part.
🦴Every dog and every family is different. You may have your own house rules, and nobody has to tell you should you sleep in one bed with your dog or not. That's why I practice an individual approach that will be designed to make your life with a dog the most comfortable for both of you, brought in line with the dog's well-being and your anticipations.
🦴I work not only with dogs but - and at first - with their owners. At the end of the day, you are a key to managing your dog’s behavior, you and not a trainier should be his or her best friend and social partner. So my aim is to teach you how to interact with your dog and handle them in any situation while creating an unbreakable bond.
🦴A good therapy has to start with an appropriate assessment. Before our first meeting, I'll ask you to answer a questionare and to fill in the form to have essential information about your dog and yourself. If we are working online, I will also ask you to send me a video to demonstrate your dog's behaviour and your typical reactions on it. Sometimes, I will ask you to do some simple tests with your puppy.
🦴During the first consultation, I will assess factors that contribute to your dog’s behavior and discuss your anticipations and long-term goals, thus to ensure the best experience to you and your dog.
