First contact

Each behavioral consultation and individual training starts with a first contact (duration approx. 90-120 minutes). The interview serves to analyze your current situation and provides the basis for further action in practice.

Through the initial conversation, Verena Helfrich can get the most accurate picture of you and your dog. You will be asked many questions about the coexistence with your dog, your everyday life and of course the unwanted behavior of your four-legged friend. In doing so, Verena Helfrich can explain connections to you and define goals together with you.

The initial interview is the basis for training or behavioral therapy and the basis for developing the right training concept for you.

One-to-one training

One-to-one training is a great way to work intensively on educational difficulties. One-on-one training is not only appropriate for topics such as hunting, aggressive or anxious behavior, but also for everyday problems such as pulling on the leash, excessive barking or recall problems.

At the beginning of a one-to-one training there is always a detailed first contact (see below) in which training contents and goals are addressed.

behavioral counseling and Therapy

A behavioral disorder is only referred to when there is a "short-term or permanent clear deviation from the normal species-specific behavior" (Gattermann). Causes of behavioral disorders are manifold: changes in the genetic material, various disorders during the individual development, diseases or inappropriate environmental conditions, eg. in the rearing of the puppy.

Severe behavioral problems are relatively rare in dogs. For such dogs, a behavioral counseling and behavioral therapy comes into question. Here is a careful and comprehensive diagnosis in the foreground.

In the area of behavioral counseling and therapy Verena Helfrich works together with veterinarians, animal healers and specialized experts in the field of dog training.

At the beginning of a behavioral consultation / therapy there is always a detailed initial consultation - first contact (see below).
