Merry offers a range of personalised services that are tailored to you and your dog’s needs. Consultations are conducted in the familiar environment of your own home, at times to suit you and your family. Individual coaching programs can also be designed for specific training needs. Merry also gives talks to groups of interested people and provides special advice on selecting the right puppy for your circumstances. Phone or email for an obligation free chat about what approach might best assist you and your family.
A one-to-one consultation involves coming to your home so I can observe and analyse your dog’s total environment and discuss a series of questions with you about your dog’s behaviour and reactions across a wide range of situations. Ideally, all members of the household need to be present and the first session will take approximately 4 hours. Together we develop a personalised action plan for your dog’s specific issues. I fully outline Dog Listening principles and coach you through all the practices that household members need to undertake (or at least understand). I leave you with comprehensive notes, and a copy of Jan Fennell's own instructional DVD is included. Prior to the consultation I ask you to complete a comprehensive questionnaire in regard to your dog(s), which assists with analysis of your specific issues.
The consultation fee also covers follow-up coaching where we meet and check progress and answer questions etc. This means on-going coaching support is provided, at no extra cost, until new skills are established.
The one-off fee for this service is $400 – fully inclusive. For clients outside the greater Hobart area, there is a travel charge which we need to agree beforehand.
