Managing Your Teen Terror

When our cute little pups hit around the 6-7 month mark they can often hit what we call the “teenage phase”. 

 

Our seemingly well behaved baby pups have lulled us into a false sense of security. All of a sudden, they no longer seem interested following you around faithfully; they instead have started running off, dragging you around on the end of the lead, have selective hearing and enjoy generally causing havoc.

 

We can help you regain confidence and control over your teenage terror through providing calm and consistent training techniques. 

 

Things we can help with

  • Home management

  • Teenage tantrums

  • Car management

 

This Package consists of

 

  • 1 x 60 min introduction Zoom consultation

  • 3 x 45 min training walks - we take the dog and work with them independently

  • 3 x 45 min private lessons - we work with you and your dog as a team. We cover what the dog has learned and teach you how to manage their behaviour

Fearsome Fido’s and Cranky Canines

Does your show signs of reactivity towards other dogs or people?

Do you feel stressed even at the thought of taking your dog out for a walk? 

 

Reactivity can present for a number of reasons and manifest in a number of ways, including aggression, avoidance, fear, anxiety, barking and lunging. 

 

It is important when dealing with reactivity to understand why the dog is being reactive rather than just shutting down or using “quick fixes” to stop the behaviour itself. 

 

We work with you to come up with a solution to address the root of the problem. With our help, you will be able to work with your dog on an appropriate rehabilitation strategy, based on the core cause of the issue.  

 

As fully qualified professionals we have years of experience working with dogs showing signs of anxiety and reactivity. We also work closely with the Veterinary Behaviour Specialists at Bellarine Vets if we feel the dog needs further help in addition to training.

 

In addition to our usual consultation package, the Cranky Canine package has an additional socialisation session. One of our calm and experienced training is used during this session to progress safely with socialisation in a controlled situation. This allows you gain the confidence to manage your dogs behaviour in day to day situations.

 

Further socialisation sessions can also be added if required. 

  • 60 min introduction Zoom consultation

  • 90 min in home consultation

  • 45 min Socialisation session with one of our our calm training dogs

  • Email and Phone support

  • Written personalised training plan

  • 1 complimentary group class when your dog is ready to move forward with training

Dog Walking Ready Package

Would you like to walk your dog regularly, but get frustrated by a pulling and distracted dog? Would you like your dog to go with a regular dog walker, but you're embarrassed by their current mischievousness?

 

We can help your dog improve their walking manners to the point that any dog walker would be happy to take them!

 

Over the course of 3 weeks, we will accompany you (or your dog walker) and assist in ensuring progress and cohesion in training throughout walks. 

 

This is a great way to ensure all your hard work training doesn’t go backwards through frustration and inconsistencies during walks. It will also help you (and your dog walker) feel more confident with your dog. 

 

After the initial 3 sessions, you will also receive 3 monthly follow up sessions to make sure things are staying on the right track.

 

What this package includes:  

 

  • 1 x 60 introduction Zoom consultation

  • 3 x 45 min training sessions with our trainer on a training walk

  • 3 x 45 min monthly follow up sessions to ensure continuity in progress

At Pawtastic Paws we specialise in dogs with anxiety and we understand all dogs and owners are different so we will work with you to make sure you and your dog are getting the best out of each other. We would love to see you in class. Contact us to book.
