Would you like support with your dog’s behaviour? My support programmes are designed to help you understand what is driving your dog’s behaviour, find solutions and then support and motivate you to implement them.
Habits are not always easy to change in ourselves and our pet’s behaviour is no different. Behaviour can be complex and impacted by a number of variables, which means it can take time to change. That’s why I focus on exploring all areas of your pet’s environment, routines, interactions and health, to ensure the best chance of success with changing behaviour, or finding solutions which work for you. Support programmes always focus on a way forwards which works for you, your pet and your lifestyle.

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 behaviour support and veterinary referral is necessary during a general training session, then the cost of the training session will be deducted from a behaviour support programme.
Any behaviour problem will require veterinary referral prior to assessing and making changes. 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, I 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 the behaviour.
Habits and behaviours take commitment to change in ourselves and our pets are no different. Behaviour is individual and complex, so one pet will be different to another. A pet behaviour support programme will help you understand what is driving the behaviour and provide you with a plan, solutions and support.
