Creature Teacher offers private animal behaviour consulting and training for companion animals, primarily in the Sutherland Shire and Sydney area. The behaviourist will visit you in your home or wherever your problem occurs and discuss your animal’s behaviour. She will analyse the possible causes of the unwanted behaviour and determine why it is occurring. This will enable her to begin to change it and solve the problem at its source. You will receive a written report and the option of free follow-up calls or e-mails. Whichever medium you prefer.

In-home consultations start at $300 for a 2-2.5 hour visit in the Sutherland Shire area. Price will increase for consultations outside of the Sutherland Shire to account for extra travel. Alternatively, you can travel to the Sutherland Shire if your problem is not specific to the home and avoid the extra travel cost. Call to see if this is a suitable arrangement.

Training sessions

Training only sessions are available, either as a follow up to a behavioural consultation, to provide training advice and hands on help, or to help implement the recommendations of other behaviourists. These will usually run for about an hour. Training packages can be negotiated.

Day Training

Creature Teacher can come to your home while you are at work to train your animal for you. This means you will not have to struggle to learn the new skills needed to train your animal while also dealing with beahviour that may be frustrating or even dangerous. Your pet will have several training sessions a week, and at the end of the week a transfer session will be organised to discuss your pet's progress and show you how to cue their new skills. Contact to see if this is suitable for you.

Skype consultations

If you live too far away for a home visit, Creature Teacher offers consultations over Skype by arrangement. The cost is the same as an in-home consultation.
