dog behaviour workshops wherever you are!

Dog behaviour workshops? What are dog behaviour workshops?

Again something different from me, Steven Havers, dog behaviourist.

My dog behaviour workshops come to you. Wherever you live, I will come to you and run my dog behaviour workshops for you. All you need to organise is a minimum of 10 people and their dogs, locations we can use and we can embark on a learning journey together with me teaching you and your group how to improve the behaviour of their dogs, regardless of distraction. The workshops run from 09.00 till 17.00 each day with a break for lunch.

My dog behaviour workshops are designed to offer you a different approach to dog behaviour but something you will still benefit from hugely. My dog behaviour workshops run in two, three or four day formats.

You can choose the length of workshop you want from two, three or four days depending on your dogs behaviour, your groups needs and what you and they want to achieve. There will be a minimum of ten and a maximum of 15 other dogs and their owners all learning to behave together.

Working within a group of other dog owners on my dog behaviour workshop is a very constructive environment as you can listen and observe the other group members which helps you learn more and learn more quickly as you are hearing and seeing the instructions and demonstrations more than once. We all learn through repetition! 

Working this closely with me means you get a great deal of individual and group tuition and we will all have discussed the plan for the dog behaviour workshop right at the start so you all know what is coming. Surprises don't benefit anyone or help learning!

Whether you choose a two, three or four day dog behaviour workshop you can be assured that you will leave with a much better behaved dog and a much clearer and deeper understanding of what makes your dog tick.

All legal breeds or mixes of breeds are welcome regardless of their behaviour issues. All behavioural issues will be discussed before the workshop commences and any serious issues will be assessed before the workshop starts so all necessary steps can be taken to ensure everyone safety,  enjoyment and learning.


What do my dog behaviour workshops consist of?

My dog behaviour workshops consist of working with you, your dog and your group in situations and locations where you currently experience difficulty. I will show you and teach you how to behave differently so you and your dog can cope and behave better in these situations, whatever they may be.

Before you join the dog behaviour workshop, we will have a thorough conversation about the problems you and your group are experiencing and the level of the problems your dog is giving you.

We will then plan together which locations to use that will help address and resolve the issues you are struggling with.

My 25 years experience mean my dog behaviour workshops can help your dog learn to behave in country parks, open spaces, around wild life and livestock, with runners, joggers, cyclists, other dogs, other dogs off lead, town centres, railway stations, airports or wherever your dog struggles.

As a very experienced Human behaviourist I can help you learn to understand why your dog behaves as he does in these situations, I can help you learn to be able to show your dog you know what you are doing so your dog can relax, I can show you how to be relaxed and in control in these situations and I will do all of this without treats or toys. I will use the power of your attention and teach you how to use it properly

My dog behaviour workshops focus on three core principles:

  1. For your dog to walk on a slack lead.
  2. For your dog to remain calm whatever the distraction.
  3. for your dog to come back when called, regardless of distraction

If  your dog will do these three things, you have a dog that is under full control whatever the situation. That is a dog you can be proud of and you are an example of a good dog owner.

It requires a dog behaviourist and a human behaviourist to achieve these three core principles so if your goal is to have your dog be calm and very well behaved and you are prepared to work hard then call 01530 242209 now and lets get started. You will have my dedicated support through the whole journey and that is my promise to you. 

Please ring 01530 242209 to enquire about a dog behaviour workshop or use the contact form please. A full workshop schedule will be drawn up and sent to you to show your group.

 Please note only six dog behaviour workshop weeks are available in 2017.

I look forward to meeting you! I am in Markfield, Leicestershire LE67 9RJ.
