Don’t let a bark become a bite!
Are you worried about any aspects of dog ownership? Do you have an unwanted behaviour problem? Kate works closely with you and your dog to offer an individually tailored approach that aims to help solve problem behaviour. Many of the behaviours we see as ‘problems’ are actually perfectly normal behaviour for most dogs in the particular environment they find themselves.
One-to-one professional advice is given on a wide range of dog-related issues covering such common problems as:
- fears and phobias to loud noises such as traffic or fireworks
- separation anxiety, destructive behaviour and barking
- training issues such as pulling on the lead, jumping up or poor recall
An initial consultation will last approximately 2 to 2.5 hours. You will be asked about your dog’s behaviour, his full history (if available), your lifestyle and dog’s relationship with members of the household and other pets. Your dog will be assessed and you will be advised on potential solutions in a detailed follow-up report clearly setting out a protocol for behaviour modification. A veterinary check is usually advised to exclude a possible underlying medical cause for your dog’s behaviour. Behaviour problems are often complex in origin and a complete ‘cure’ cannot be guaranteed.
No problem is too small. Behaviour problems tend to worsen over time, so it is important to seek professional advice as soon as possible. The earlier advice is sought the more likely a successful outcome can be achieved.
