Behaviour Modification Consultations
You’ll be surprised how quickly and easily a behavioural problem can be solved - the majority with only one consultation. Behaviour Modification Consultations take approximately three hours in duration. We will come to your home and take you and your dog through an intensive program that will identify why the problem has happened and how to remould the dog’s unwanted patterns into positive lessons that can then be rewarded to reshape wanted behaviours.
We do not believe in giving you solutions to mask the unwanted behaviours, it is far better to be able to identify the problem so that the correct learning patterns can be instilled into your dogs mind. This consultation consists of both theory and practical components. Below are just a few of the dog problems that can be solved through behaviour modification consultations.
Biting People, dogs & animals
Chasing Cars, bikes, skateboards, animals & children
Barking At objects, animals, noises or for no apparent reason

Attention Seeking To relieve the stress of a demanding dog
There is a more substantial amount of work to be done with a multiple dog family as not only are we targeting each individual dog’s problems, but also working on pack order within the family and the dogs. All owners are able to purchase a Behaviour Clinic Success Sheduler that will enable the family to stay on track with the behaviour modifications that will be put into place. These consultations are held from Monday to Saturday within Gold Coast, Brisbane, Toowoomba and Sunshine Coast areas.
Should you not wish to do the Behaviour Modification Consultation, there are additional papers written on particular behaviour problems that we can make available to you for purchase.
Have your dog holiday with us whilst learning their new training exercises. This particular method of training is convenient for the owner that is continually out of town or just too busy to be able to attend any training with the dog. We offer a ten day stay where the dogs will learn basic obedience exercises. We can also work on some of the behaviour problems that you may have such as dog aggression, toilet training etc. (Please also refer to the Behaviour Modification Consultation page to see a list of unwanted behaviours that may refer to your dog!).
In-kennel training includes training, boarding fees, food, and two handler lessons. One handler lessons is administered upon arrival of the owner to pick up the dog. The second lesson is administered approximately one week after the dog has gone home. This ensures that if the owner has any questions after they have returned home, there is an avenue for extra support and maintenance training. A handout of the training administered is also given to the owner to re-inforce the new learnt behaviours.
We provide this In-kennel training service from Paws and Whiskers Boarding Kennel and Cattery. Inspections are welcome between the business hours of 7am to 11am and 2pm to 5.30pm Monday to Friday. Paws and Whiskers is located at 98 Gilmore Road, Berrinba (Logan Central). Should you have any enquiries, please do not hesitate to contact us either through email or mobile ph 0400 741 660.
Bookings are essential for this service.
