Behavioural Consultations

Do you have a problem with any of the following:
 

  • Extreme reactivity/aggression to dogs

  • Extreme reactivity/aggression to people

  • Excess barking

  • Chasing bikes, joggers, horses, deer

  • Separation anxiety

  • Abnormal repetitive behaviours (OCD)

  • Inappropriate house soiling

  • Digging

  • Food or toy guarding

  • Destructive behaviour
     

Behaviour problems can be seen in dogs of all shapes and sizes, pure breeds, mixed breeds, rescue dogs etc. There used to be only 3 choices, live with the problem, re-home the dog or worst case scenario put the dog down.
LUCKILY with behaviour modification and the use of positive reward methods, owners are now able to work with their dogs’ behaviour and greatly improve if not completely solve most problems.

There are many reasons for behavioural problems developing, lack of exercise, wrong food, lack of training, inappropriate training, bad genetics, strong working breed traits, lack of socialisation, boredom, wrong breed of dog for the lifestyle of the owner, the list is endless. No matter what the problem help is at hand.

What Happens At A Consultation?

The first session I come to your home and listen to you talk about your dog, its behaviour and as much history as possible.

I spend at least 2 hours with you discussing several management techniques to immediately help you handle the behaviour and then discuss the longer term training and management techniques to help you resolve the issue. We may, depending on the difficulties, need a few follow up sessions, either at home or out in the real world. I will write a report detailing everything that is discussed in our session and if you wish, a copy of that report can be sent direct to your veterinary surgeon.
