Behaviour Consultation Service

Are you finding your dog’s behaviour a challenge? I understand how difficult and embarrassing it may be when your dog acts inappropriately in the presence of others.

With years of foster caring and home boarding, I have gained a vast amount of experience with complex dog behaviour issues. I am more than happy to help you work through your dog’s behaviour issues. Whether they are showing signs of aggression, have a bite history or have a fear of noises, no case too small.

After an initial discussion, I will send you a vet referral form, this must be given to your vet at the time of a vet appointment prior to me being able to take on your case and help with the behaviours. This is so that we can rule out any medical conditions and so that I can be sent the relevant medical history information.

Once I have received all of the history forms, an appointment day can be booked. This must be paid for at the time of the booking to reserve your slot. The behaviour consultation will be at your own home, this is the best place for me to come so that I can meet the whole family and still be in a familiar place to your dog.

This first consultation may last between 2 and 4 hours depending on the complexity of the case, sometimes the consult will involve going for a short walk. During the consult, you will be given lots of information and I will assess, diagnose your dog and design the most appropriate treatment plan for you to all work through. This will be documented at the time of the consultation and you will receive a full written report within 1 week of the session. I recommend at least one follow up but I am happy to provide a skype/ telephone 20-minute session follow up 2 weeks after to check on progress which is all included in the initial cost and then will hope to follow up with you after 8 weeks (prices for follow-ups below).

There are many behavioural issues that I have helped owners with in the past such as:

*Resource guarding

*Aggression towards people

*Aggression towards dogs or other animals

*Unwanted barking at people of other dogs

*Hyperactivity

*Separation anxiety

*Fears and phobias

*Noise sensitivity

*Abnormal repetitive behaviours

*Jumping up

So if you are struggling with your pet’s behaviour please do not hesitate to get in touch, don’t suffer in silence please give heather a call.
