BEHAVIOUR CHANGE COUNSELLING

 Resource Guarding, Fear Aggression (other dogs or people), SepAration-Related Issues and other 'abnormal' or 'Problematic' Behavioural issues...

Whether you have acquired a dog with established unwanted behaviour problems, a change in behaviour has suddenly occurred, or an issue has developed with your dog over time, there is no time like the present to address and deal with it!

Living with a dog displaying behavioural issues can put a real strain on your relationship and can prevent you from really enjoying your hound. It also means that you dog will very likely be unhappy too!

SEE BELOW FOR DETAILS:

BEHAVIOUR AND HEALTH

If your dog's behaviour has deteriorated suddenly, he is behaving "out of character", or you suspect that there may be a physical/medical reason for his behaviour, it is vitally important to have your dog checked over by your veterinary surgeon as your first step. It is not possible to treat a behavioural issue with a purely 'Behavioural' approach if the reason for the behaviour is due to a medical/physical/pain problem. 

IF YOU ARE IN ANY DOUBT ABOUT THE PHYSICAL HEALTH OF YOUR PET, PLEASE ARRANGE A CONSULTATION WITH YOUR VETERINARY SURGEON AS YOUR FIRST STEP. 

BEHAVIOUR TRAINING

BEHAVIOURAL CONSULTATIONS

Consist of both theoretical and practical application of a tailor-made Behaviour Change Programme (BCP) over a number of sessions. 

An initial consultation of approximately 2 hours is required to assess and evaluate the behaviour problem in question in order that an appropriate Behaviour Change Programme (BCP) can be formulated. Based on this assessment the next steps can be discussed, planned and implemented within a suitable, tailor made programme of assisted practical sessions. 

- Initial Consultation and Assessment Fee & Report- £220 *

- Follow Up Practical Sessions - £70/hr *
* mileage charged outside the TN22  area

Behaviour Change Programme (BCP) total costs will vary depending on the behaviour to be addressed and complexity of the BCP required. This will be discussed and agreed with you at your initial consultation once an assessment has been made.     

OWNERS PLEASE NOTE!

Many serious behavioural issues are very deeply established. Consequently, owners must be aware that there is no "Quick Fix". Implementation of a Behaviour Change Programme will require dedication and determination on your part in order to be successful and work through the issue with your pet, possibly over several months. When you see your hard work paying off and the behaviour, and consequently, your relationship with your dog, improves significantly, it will all be worth it!
