Behaviour Consultations

8.png

Is your dog showing signs of aggression, fear or anxiety?  Would you like help to work on these behaviours?

 

Who can benefit from our Behaviour Consultations?

  • Designed for dogs who require more specialist behavioural modification work. This training requires a greater understanding of how dogs learn, insights into potential problems, patience, good timing, setting realistic targets and adopting a flexible training approach.
     

  • We understand how difficult and stressful it can be to have a dog with behavioural issues. We aim to give you information and understanding as to why your dog exhibits these behaviours, before completing specialist training to help get your relationship back on track.
     

  • We can help with a variety of dog behavioural issues including anxiety, resource guarding, lack of socialisation, aggression and more.
     

  • Held at our Training & Behaviour Centre in Hope Under Dinmore, Herefordshire or in your local area. Travel charges may apply. 
     

  • Cost: Please see specific prices below.

     

What's covered in our Behaviour Consultations?
 

  • A minimum of 2 home visits OR video consultations. We will advise you on the number of visits needed - please bear in mind that most problems require ongoing support and training, as it can take time to change behaviour patterns. 
     

  • In addition, we may recommend other training packages to support the behaviour modification process.
     

  • In our first session together, we will assess your dog and attempt to determine the underlying reasons for their behaviour. We will then develop a training plan and send this to you via email.
     

  • During our second session together, we will talk you through the plan and get started on your training. We will also invite our animal behaviourist to join us, so they can begin working with your dog.
     

  • We provide ongoing support and guidance via email or phone in between consultations.
     

  • Please note: This service will require us to work with your vets and any other professionals who have a relationship with your dog. This allows us to provide a holistic approach, ensuring we address your dog's health, behaviour and environment as a whole.
