Behavioural Therapy

Many behaviour problems are due to a misunderstanding between dog and owner, a lack of appropriate socialisation/habituation or of house rules and boundaries, which may not be apparent to the owner.

We start all one to one behavioural work in the dogs own home.

The reason for starting at home is your relationship and the mutual respect with your dog is created there. To change any behavioural or training problems, we need to start initially where the dog lives. Then move to the places where the problems normally occur.

We have a pack of therapy dogs, which are a very important part of our behavioural team. These dogs are specially trained and extremely effective when working with dog to dog aggression problems. This allows us to assess the type and degree of aggression your dog may have, so we can put the best method of treatment in place.

We work hands on with dogs and owners, demonstrating the technics and making sure the owners can accomplish the required results. Regular weekly follow up sessions are recommended, to give continued back up training until the problem is successfully resolved.

Whilst dog training classes are a good place to teach your pet good manners and obedience, they are not the place to deal with more complex behaviours. For these a more detailed assessment of the underlying cause of the problem needs to be carried out so that appropriate treatment can be advised

The consultation will last approximately two hours, during which time your pet will be thoroughly assessed and an appropriate behaviour modification programme will be advised.

You will learn how to communicate to your dog/s in the language they understand. You will be empowered with a set of tools that whenever your dog asks any questions or challenges your leadership you will know how to respond, resulting in a calm and relaxed dog and humans!
