 What you can expect ?


  1. ME : This first Consultation Will give us a better understanding of your situation with details of dog's issues you encountere and consequentely be able to evaluate, what would be the best training formula that will fit to your needs, during the a next phase on "ONE-ON-ONE HOME TRAINING".
  2. YOU : Behavioral assessment will give you a better understanding on our approach witch is mostly  :"working and focusing on owners (empowering their leadership skills) to change dog's behavior". In other terms, "We will coach you , for you to be able to train your dog on the best way possible"... Therefore and before taking any commitment on a training program, you need, first, to figure out if my approach meet yours expectations !
  3. TOGETHER : As a "in home behavior modification training requires trust, integrety and team work, it is also important that  both of us are on the same page for doing this training together, with your family.
  4. We will also give you some tips & advies that can help you to start behavior modification after your first consultation.

Why  doing a remote coaching as a 1st appointment ?


1) Behaviorla assessment : For you to explain behavioral issues you encounterd with your dog, strategy you already done in the past (working or not), what are your expectations in terms of training and what type of training you want/need (in function of you budget, time and dog issues)



2) Behavioral Basic/fundamentals in dog training : Understanding how your dog communicate with you, why he seems to not undersatand what you are waiting from him ... How to apply dog psychology >< human psychology, Body language >< vocal language, reading Energy/State of mind to avoid behavior issues, Rising your "Pack leadership" skill, Understanding the "balanced training" >< "positive reinforcement exclusively" ( how it can often be conterproductif when it is reinforcing positively a unwanted behavior)



3) Step immediatly into the training : to solve your dog issues by your own inbetween session (before working on one-on-one with the dog at your location)... This will also allow us to do correction, some reajustemment on what your already did apply/understood, when we will meet for the first home session (it will be already a follow-up session on some issues)



4) Optimazing Home training session (or decreasing additional training) : Consequently,

this upstream training will allow you to decrease the duration of a training program therefore you can spare time (and money)

  1. Lots of issues can be solved remotely as I am working on the" root cause", witch is the relation/interaction, habits, beliefs (or fear , projection), rules, boundaries, limitation between dog and family members... I will "coach you", for you to "train your dog"
  2. You will already see/have results from this first session, as you will recieve Major help that will be very useful : tips, technics, advice, understanding, that will help you (even if you don't follow a training program after this remote coaching)



5) Team work absolute priority : As it is a Team work, dedication and mutual trust is a key to have good results in the long run

Therfore, it is important that the magic happens between us and that you can see if this type of training approach is the right one for you and if you want to go deeper with my expertise.


And then... what is next after this first Consultation?

All options are available :

  1. Standar protocol : You  book a 1st visiocoaching to start the training
