Many behavioural problems could be avoided if we had a greater understanding of why our pets behave the way they do! Behavioural problems can develop due to many different reasons, such as genetics, early experiences, learned behaviours, lack of training and/or exercise, or rewarding incorrect behaviours. Every pet is unique; even if they are from the same breed or from the same litter. Sometimes the close bond we develop with our pet can be the cause of their behavioural problems.
Making sure your pet receives the correct training is vitally important in order for them to live happily within your home.
Our first consultation will last around an hour to an hour and a half. During this time I will take a full history from you about your pet, together with details about the behavioural problem. I will then outline the behavioural problem and discuss the motivations behind the behaviour.
Our second consultation will take place a week later, when I will return with a behaviour programme which is tailored to suit you and your pet. I will go through the behaviour training programme and show you the techniques I have recommended to change your pet’s behaviour. I will also be able to answer any questions you may have.
A copy of the behaviour training programme will be sent to your veterinary surgeon. To gain maximum benefit from our time together, it is helpful if all the family can attend (where applicable) and please feel free to provide any written notes, diaries or videos you may have kept to aid your pet’s assessment.
After our consultations, you will receive support via email or telephone as part of your service. Another appointment can be arranged if further help is needed.
Before a behavioural consultation can be arranged your pet must visit your veterinary surgeon for a medical check. This simple process is to rule out any medical causes that may be affecting your pet’s behaviour.
If your pet does have a medical problem which is related to its behaviour, the problem must be treated before I can visit.
You And Your Pet Behavioural Consultation is one payment of £150. Further behaviour training sessions can be arranged to support you and your pet’s progress. These sessions are £30 per hour or you can be three sessions for £80.
