Behaviour advice

When a behaviour problem goes beyond “just Google it”.

Behaviour therapy is advised for dogs displaying behaviour problems. Dogs who would not thrive in group training, and/or whose problems (e.g. aggression, fear, excitement or problems being home alone) require one-on-one attention. If you are hesitating, check this diagram to help you make the choice between group training and one-on-one behaviour advice.

You can find out more about behaviour therapy here. A 2-hour behaviour advice and evaluation session costs EUR210. Depending on your pet insurance, you might get this partially reimbursed as we are fully certified and recognized by professional organisations.

One-on-one sessions from your home

If you can’t come to us, we’ll come to you.

The appointments are planned at a time of your convenience, also outside of office hours.

The sessions are booked in 4-lesson packages (one per week). This gives you visibility about your financial investment. 

The training is charged per 45-minute segment (55 euro / 45 minutes). A 4-session package costs: 

  1. As follow-up to a behaviour consult = 220 euro (4 sessions of 45 minutes)
  2. Without behaviour consult = 275 euro
    1. Session 1 = 1.5 hour (in-take + first practice session)
    2. Sessions 2-3 = 45 minutes
