What is the difference between Dog Training / Obedience classes, and a Behavioural Consultation?
Training is like learning how to drive a car - Behaviour is learning about how the car works.
You need to be be to handle a car in order to be safe amongst other road users - That's dog training,
However if the car isn't performing as it should, maybe dangerous or unpredictable, then you see a professional mechanic - regardless of cost, you have a moral duty and legal obligation to ensure that the car is roadworthy.
Obedience classes are typically held hourly once a week in a hall and cost around £50 for an 8 week period.
Within classes, training essential basics, there might be an average of 15 dogs in attendance, meaning that with travel costs considered, the Trainer would make around £70 from the session.
Behaviour Consultations, depending on the area and the individual Behaviourist's charges, can cost anywhere between £80-£250 for the initial Assessment, lasting between 45 minutes to 3 hours based on the severity of the dog's problem.
This fee may seem expensive to you, but with this service comes so much more than a standardised class methodology.
Assessments and consultations are tailored to your dog's individual needs and would include support material provided by the Behaviourist, after-care support, and a wealth of knowledge and experience on hand which is far superior to that of an Obedience trainer.
Considering an average fee of £150 for a 90 minute session with a Behaviour Consultant and factoring in the time spent for client support both before and after the consultation, travel costs and the research which goes into each individual case.. the reality is that the Behaviourist probably makes less money per hour (around £30 based on this example) than an Obedience Trainer, whilst providing a far richer service.
The work dedicated to your dog may be an 8 hour day of which the visit may be only 3 hours of that.
Compare that to what you might pay to have your car serviced, garden tended to or house decorated and it starts to appear to be more than good value.
