Behaviour consultations are available for a variety of domestic pet species including dogs, cats and rabbits.
If you have another species that is causing you concern, please contact us by phone, or email with details of the species and a brief account of the problem and we will see if we can help.
Advice on all types of behaviour problems such as fears and phobias; inappropriate toileting; aggression; possessive/ guarding behaviours; repetitive behaviours (e.g. tail or shadow chasing); chewing/destructive behaviours; and more.
Behaviour consultations are only seen on veterinary referral to ensure any problem behaviours are not related to a medical condition, such as inappropriate urination resuting from bladder problems; increased aggression due to pain, etc.
All behavioural modification techniques use only methods of positive reinforcement and association and never harsh training methods or punishments.
Consulatations are performed at your house so that the most accuate display of your pets' behaviour can be observed with minimal influence from the distration or anxiety of a new environment. During the visit, a thorough history will be taken, an explanation of the cause/ meaning of your pets behaviour will be given and a detailed plan for modification will be implemented. This will be followed up by a detailed written report which will be sent to you within a few days.
