BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS

Behaviour consultations are different from training courses in that training is about teaching a dog something new (like lead walking or recall) and behavior consultations help to improve or eliminate existing problems or abnormal behavior (like chewing, separation anxiety, excessive barking, aggression/reactivity and much more).  We like to start the behaviour consultation in your own home, and then take it outside depending on what problems you are having, so we can observe the unwanted behaviour as it normally happens.  If you are struggling with a behaviour problem, please click here and one of our qualified behaviourists will contact you.

 

Our behaviourists will often want to speak to you and your vet (this can be done over the phone) before the consultation, so they can get all the background information they need to prepare for when you meet. This helps them advise you on the best approach. See below for how the consultation process works

 

Common behavior problems

 

  • Dog-Dog aggression

  • Human suspicion

  • Guarding behavior

  • Separation anxiety

  • Livestock chasing

  • In-house pet-pet relationships

  • Adult toilet training

  • Hyperactivity

Consultation process

Behaviour consultations vary from person to person and dog to dog, depending on the behaviour you are looking to change. We often start with a telephone call (if our presence in the home will upset your dog), and then meet you and your dog for a consultation. We will give you a training plan and handouts after your consultation to give you a reminder of our assessment and diagnosis that you can use as a reference guide to help you with your training afterwards.  Lastly we offer you support after your consultation as and when you need it, we usually do this over the phone or by email but if you feel you need further practical sessions then these can be arranged too.

 

Our process:

  • Book consultation/Initial telephone conversation

  • Fill out history form

  • Speak with your veterinary practise about medical history 

  • 3 hour behaviour consultation starting at your home

  • Training plan and handouts (full report for human aggression cases)

  • Phone/email support

  • Follow-up practical sessions if required (hourly)
