Sue’s Very First NEWSLETTER – April 2020 - Your Dog and COVID-19
I hope that you are all managing during the COVID-19 outbreak and are safe and well? We are getting used to staying indoors with a walk each morning, diving into the verges on the narrow paths to avoid being closer than 2 metres to people. It has improved Fizz’s recall and I have now trained her to dive in between my knees to give us more passing room. Chip is still trucking along on lead as he will often end up in a bush or a ditch now that he is almost totally blind and deaf but at 18, he is luckily in very good health otherwise. We are all now at home and my team of 10 are no longer dog walking, but being self-employed, we are largely ok although for me I am waiting to see if there is any help for those of us who only became self-employed in the last year.
here is a little about my year: Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly Channel 5 I have had an interesting year, in September last year, I had a call from the ‘Dog’s Behaving (Very) Badly team asking if we could help with some reactive dogs that Graham Hall was training and take along some calm dogs to use. My daughter, Leah and myself took our old dog Chip and Rolo, one of our clients dogs who were superstars, see photo. The episode was shown on Channel 5 about a month ago. BBC Radio Surrey and Sussex On 26th January I was invited by Nicky Patrick to speak live on BBC Radio Surrey and Sussex about dogs on her Sunday night show ‘Fifteen Minutes of Fame’ which I thoroughly enjoyed and had a lot of great feedback from. Online/Video Consultations Now Only £75 Fancy working on a few little issues with your dog during the lock-down? I am currently offering calls/video sessions instead of home visits at a discount. I have some specialist advice on Covid-19 and your dog's behavioural issues, with tips on how best to handle the situation. Behavioural Issues: Home video/phone consultation only (no report) £25, with additional full report, homework and free follow up support at £75. This includes a 1 hour consultation where I chat to you, assess your dog via video footage, send a full written report with homework set for you and your dog, a possible vet referral and free follow up with texts and calls for support. We can use Whatsapp/Zoom/Skype or a simple call, whichever you prefer. New Puppy 121 Session: Most of my clients have already attended puppy training classes but this is often not enough or targeted at your dog's specific personality. One size does not fit all which is the problem in classes. I also offer a 121 Puppy Starter session as a popular alternative to attending puppy classes at £75. You will receive professional, 121 advice and training with free ongoing support and your dog's unique personality is assessed along with your own. This includes a full tailored puppy starter pack to take you through your first year together and the various developmental phases you will encounter, with free ongoing advice from me as you progress, with the lockdown in mind. Here are just some of the dogs I have already helped and some issues I can help with: Jumping up Pulling on the lead Barking and aggression toward other dogs Territorial aggression in the home Toileting in the house Mouthing and biting Rehabilitating rescues Recall Excessive barking Good social manners Fear based issues Choosing the right puppy for you from a litter Puppy training/house training 121 Puppy Starter session in your own home (an increasingly popular alternative to puppy classes) Introducing your new dog to children Teaching your children how to be safe around your dog Teaching dog body language to humans Help choosing the right breed for you Website Details: See more on: http://www.thesurreyark.co.uk/dog-behaviourist-help Please feel free to pass this on to any friends of family members who may be interested in some help for their dogs.
