A behavioural consultation uses canine psychology to identify and understand the motivation, rewards and the emotions behind a specific dog’s behaviour. This knowledge can then be used to modify that behaviour using positive, kind and reward-based methods.
Consultations are held in the dog’s home environment where the behaviour can be discussed and hopefully observed, ensuring the most appropriate, effective advice can be given. Dogs (and owners) are generally less stressed in a familiar environment, and being at home makes learning and re-training a lot easier.
Prior to the initial consultation you will receive a questionnaire to complete and return to me so that I can highlight areas for further discussion. The first session will be approximately 2 hours, and there will be 2 follow-up sessions of 1.5 hours each. You will receive a report after the first session based on our discussions and suggested way forward.
