  • How do dog training sessions differ from canine problematic behaviour consultations?

    Behaviour is complex and involves many aspects, including: emotions, motivations, physiology, genetics, the environment, previous experience and more! It is essential that when addressing problematic behaviour, a full understanding is gained about why the behaviour is being displayed so that changes can be made, with appropriate behaviour modification techniques. On the other hand, training revolves around teaching your dog new skills. If it becomes clear that a behaviour consultation and veterinary referral is necessary during a general training session, then the cost of the training session will be deducted from the behaviour consultation fee.

  • What does vet referral mean and why is it necessary?

    Any behaviour problem will require veterinary referral prior to a consultation. This is because health conditions both past and present can influence behaviour. Vet referral involves your vet signing a form to indicate their approval of referral and to allow for communication between vet and behaviourist. Should it be required, Lauren can then discuss with your vet if there are any medical related problems or suspicions which may be relevant to the behaviour problem and if medication may be of use in helping with behaviour modification.

  • How quickly will I see changes in my dog?

    This depends on many factors. In some cases you may see quick results, however most of the time commitment and consistency will be required to get the best, long term results. Lauren's role is to help you understand why your dog is acting in a particular way and to equip you with the skills and support necessary to achieve your goals and build on your relationship with your dog. Behaviour problems often develop over time, which means there is rarely a quick fix. Wagg & Purr Pet Behaviour is committed to offering you support until you are happy with what you’ve achieved.
