Behaviour modification is about improving the animal’s underlying emotional state and changing their behavioural pattern. It is not obedience training, but we do sometimes teach simple cues that can help an animal learn better alternatives instead of practicing an unwanted behaviour.
Behaviour modification is an essential part of improving pet behavioural problems. Effective treatment of behaviour conditions includes addressing several areas:
We only use positive reinforcement techniques during our coaching sessions which means we use treats, praise, play and pats – whatever the individual finds most reinforcing.
During the lessons, our Certificate IV Delta Institute qualified and Fear Free certified Behavioural Trainers / Coaches demonstrate and practice the training techniques with the client. A tailored training plan is sent after the lesson with detailed steps to follow at home.
The number of sessions depend on your pet’s behavioural issues and your skills too, but our Behavioural Coaches will equip you with the theoretical and practical skills so you can work on the exercises at home. We recommend having a follow-up session in a few weeks from the initial lesson to fine tune your skills and address any concerns that you may have.
Lessons are available at our venue (10/1 Patricks Road, Arana Hills), as home visits or via Zoom.
Each lesson includes one-on-one coaching and a detailed written plan.
