You want to enjoy a happier relationship with your dog, and we can help. Whether you’ve just brought home a new puppy, you’d like your adolescent dog to come when called, or even if you’re struggling with serious behaviour problems.
Helping you during the Covid19 pandemic
The world has changed around us. The situation with Covid-19 has escalated quickly and the situation is expected to get worse over the coming weeks.
We all have a responsibility to keep ourselves and everyone around us as safe and healthy as we can.
This is the best way to directly help our health services and authorities respond effectively and save lives.
Social distancing is essential, and that means staying away from other people (more than 2 metres) and avoiding prolonged contact (in proximity for more than 15 minutes).
We are also being asked to avoid “non-essential” travel. That means we don’t want to encourage you to travel for a session with your trainer or behaviourist. It also means our staff should travel as little as possible.
So, all face to face sessions are currently postponed until further notice as of 23 March 2020.
Clients with sessions booked in will be contacted directly by their trainer or behaviourist to make further arrangements.
We are a small team, so please do bear with us while we organise this.
BUT we can STILL help you!
It is absolutely possible to help with almost all behavioural problems or training situations remotely.
It might be “better” in person (sometimes) but as the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons have announced “you may need to depart from the best practice advice … in order to safeguard yourself and your colleagues, as well as public health”
We already offer online support to many of our amazing clients (via video, online material, discussion forums). This will continue as normal, and we’re working hard on additional resources for you and our new clients.
Please take care, wash your hands, and stay the heck away from other people!
We’ll see you (virtually) very soon,
Morag, Clare, Laura and Gina
