Behaviour Consultations

Online behaviour consultations, offering support and guidance with modifying your dog's behaviour, throughout the UK.

BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS ONLINE

Can you really carry out behaviour consults online?  Don't you need to see my dog?  How does that even work?

All these are questions that I have been asked, however, it really is possible.  In some cases it is actually the better option for the dog, especially anxious one, as we aim to keep them calm and relaxed at all times.  In fact, after now having conducted them in this manner, I am considering continuing with all initial sessions being in this format, even after the Coronavirus restrictions are lifted. 

Clients are also given access to Facebook support and resource groups, which contain lots of useful information, webinars, and printable resources.  These can be provided via an alternative method if not on Facebook.

25% OFF

During these difficult Coronavirus Corvid-19 months, I want to help dog owners as much as possible.  therefore I am offering 25% off behaviour consultations and follow up sessions, as well as giving clients access to the Facebook support and resource groups, which contain webinars from other professionals too.
Reactivity CONSULTATIONS

Behaviour problems can develop at any time and for a variety of reasons.  Many of these reasons are fear and anxiety based, however, pain, ill health or just boredom can be contributing factors.

Living with a dog with a behaviour problem is often stressful and emotionally exhausting for the whole family, sometimes restricting everyday events like popping to the shops, going on walks or having friends over - this may not be an issue for the time being, however, it is a great time to begin working on it.

I take a holistic approach to behaviour consults and can even offer holistic therapies to both owner and dog if required, although this is currently only distance energy work and self help advice from Touch for Health Kinesiology, due to Covid-19.  I aim to help owners understand the reasons for their dogs behaviour and teach the practical skills for safe management and modification of the undesirable behaviour.

Although I work with a variety of behaviour problems, I specialise in reactive behaviour and separation anxiety, having lived with several dogs with these problems, as well as having worked with them.

Sessions take place via Zoom, and a recording of the consult is emailed to you, in a folder full of your resources.

You then have the choice between 1 x 60 minute or 2 x 30 minute follow up Zoom session included in the price.

This initial consult and follow up (1 x 60 minute or 2 x 30 minute) Zoom session package is only £180.

This is only £135 with 25% discount offer!

SEPARATION ANXIETY CONSULTATIONS

Living with separation anxiety, and related issues, can be traumatic not only for the dog but for the owners too. 

Having lived with two dogs with different forms of separation anxiety, I know how very difficult that it can be.  Even as a behaviourist, there were tears, there were a LOT of tears!   Now though, I can happily go out for 4 hours and sometimes I even go out all day with a dog sitter visiting for an hour or two midway through.

It is hard, very hard, however, believe me - it CAN be done and you can get there too!  One of the main barriers for people with starting behaviour modification for separation anxiety cases is not leaving the dog to begin with.  Depending on your personal circumstances, this may be the ideal time to begin.

Sessions take place via Zoom, and a recording of the consult is emailed to you, in a folder full of your resources.

You then have 3 x 20 minute follow up Zoom session included in the price.

This initial consult and 3 (20 minute) Zoom session package is only £180.

This is only £135 with 25% discount offer!

Clients are invited to join either the Separation Anxiety or Reactive Dog, Support and Resource Groups on Facebook.  These groups contain a lot of useful information, including webinars by other professionals.

VETERINARY PERMISSION

I do need to request that all potential clients visit their veterinary surgeon, to rule out pain, injury or ill-health as these can often cause a change in behaviour. Veterinary consults should ideally be carried out before the behaviour modification sessions can begin, although I acknowledge this may not be a possible option for the time being.
