Virtual training or online training is not exactly a new thing in the dog training world. If you are new to this, do not be concerned! You will find our online services beneficial in many ways. In some cases, online training and consultation are more suitable than group training. Whether your dog is fearful, handful and over-excited outside, mouthy or jumpy, you can join the training from home. All dogs are welcome! In the home environment, you can build your dogs’ foundation concepts, including optimism, confidence, calmness, self-control, focus, flexibility, independence, and develop skills to help them deal with the world out there. Yes, you can home school your dog!
There are so many more benefits!

Virtual Behaviour Consultation & Training

No matter what breed or rescue or age group, our professional behaviour practitioner and trainer is here to help! Private sessions are offered via Zoom, Skype or FaceTime. The process of online sessions is the same as in-person consultations, and now our assistance is more accessible!
During the first session, we will discuss your goals and primary concern, then assess your dog. Possible causes of the behaviour and options to manage the situation and modify the behaviour are explained. (In some cases, we may request a video recording.) You will receive a training plan with related handouts/video clips. Follow-up sessions are offered depending on the progress and needs of you and your dog. Support between the sessions are available, so you can contact the behaviour practitioner if there is any question or concern.

Group training is an excellent opportunity for our dogs to learn how to behave around people and other dogs. It will help improve your skills to manage your dog in an environment with a variety of distractions. For young puppies in the socialisation period, it is a safe and well-controlled environment to learn social skills.
Each dog is an individual and has her own preferences, learning style, strength and weakness. And so is each owner! This is why we keep our group size small. We would like to see each owner & dog team become successful together!
Did your puppy miss a puppy class? Have you just adopted a dog? Or do you want to have fun with your dog? We got you covered! Adolescent and adult dogs new to training are welcome to this foundation course. Even if your dog has done puppy class long ago, you and your dog will find lots of new things to learn here. Game-based training will make training fun and teach our dogs the important concept of behaviour: optimism, calmness, self-control, focus, and flexibility. We will then build essential behaviours, including sit, down, and leave. We will discuss how dogs learn, care and management of dogs, as well as prevention of unwanted behaviour. No upper age limit.
Adolescent dogs can become challenging. Your adult dogs might have developed unruly behaviour reinforced for a while. Maybe you just want your dog to listen! Whatever the goal you have, we are here to help you get your dog real-life ready! Life skills mean calmness, self-control, and focus, as well as practical skills such as loose leash walking, reliable recall and general good manners. We build these life skills through our game-based training. The games we introduce can be played at home and in the backyard, even if the space is limited. Once your dog becomes familiar with the games, you can take them out & about to have fun with your dog! This course has no upper age limit.
Training and behaviour consultation can be conducted in the comfort of your own home. We can offer a tailor-made programme to suit the schedule and needs of you and your dog. With the minimal distraction, you and your dog can focus on learning new skills. This option is also great if your dog is not comfortable with other dogs, new people and new places.
During the first session, we will discuss immediate concern and goals, then assess your dog. (In some cases, we may ask for a video recording.) We will explain possible causes of the behaviour and suggest measures to manage it. You will receive a training plan with related information and video clips. Follow up sessions are offered depending on the progress and needs of you and your dog. Support between the sessions are available vis WhatsApp, e-mail and phonecall, so if you have any question or concern, feel free to contact your behaviour practitioner.
The method used for management and training is based on science-backed positive reinforcement principle. All animals are emotional beings. For animals to learn effectively in our context, they first need to feel safe and comfortable in the environment. Aversive methods are not necessary but can escalate the problems and create other emotional issues.
Tellington TTouch® is often a part of the behaviour modification plan and training. This holistic and gentle training method helps animals relax and release the tension of the body, improves learning ability, and helps deepen our relationship with our animals. The goal is to help animals think and respond to a variety of new situations rather than react to them. It also helps speed up the process of healing and recovery from illness and assist animals with physical issues by promoting good posture and balanced movement. Elderly pets will hugely benefit from the TTouch® method, too.
Do you struggle with walking with your dog because she pulls, barks and lunges or simply because you do not have enough time? We are here to help you and your dog! We cater for each individual owner’s and dog’s needs. Please contact trainer/behaviour practitioner to discuss.
Tellington TTouch® is a unique and gentle teaching method for animals that incorporates bodywork (touches) and movement exercises. TTouch® helps reduce tension in the body, promotes better coordination, balance and posture, assists the healing and recovery process of the animals with medical and physical issues. It can increase confidence, self-control and self-awareness. Animals can think and respond appropriately to new situations rather than react. The unique approach of TTouch® also improves communication and understanding between the animals and their guardians. TTouch® is hugely beneficial for older animal’s well-being, too. TTouch® is used for a variety of species, including humans, and the course is offered at some vet schools in North America and Europe.
TTouch® assists animals with various issues: dislike of contact, noise sensitivity, fear of thunder and lightning, poor coordination, lack of balance, car sickness, pulling on lead, lack of focus and self-control, restlessness, hyperactivity, nervousness, fearfulness, excessive behaviour, separation-related issues and more.
While TTouch® works well with a variety of treatment modalities, TTouch® is not a treatment for medical conditions. It should not be used to replace medical treatments.
TTouch® is incorporated in our training and behaviour consultation, but we offer workshops, too. If you are interested in the TTouch workshop, please let us know.
We can assist introduction of a new dog to resident dogs and cats, and help integration of a new dog to a new home and others related to dog adoption
We offer Tellington TTouch Workshops every 3 or 4 months. Please visit our Calendar page.
Topics can be dog behaviour, training and Tellington TTouch. Please contact us for further information.
