Behaviour Consultations


Does your pet do something you wish they wouldn't?

 

Are you struggling to cope with their behaviour?

 

We understand how stressful behaviour problems can be for both pet and owner.  We can assist with behavioural problems of dogs, cats and horses to find an acceptable solution for all involved.

We can help with behavioural problems such as:

    • Aggression to Animals
    • Aggression to People
    • Separation Issues
    • Fears & Phobias
    • Inappropriate Toileting
    • Destructiveness

We rely on scientific, evidence based techniques to modify behaviour.  Understanding the cause of the unwanted behaviour is crucial to treating the problem effectively.  Simply treating the symptoms is not going to help in the long run and ignores the likely compromised welfare of the animal.

We offer 2 hour behavioural consultations in the comfort of your own home, priced at £150.00. Please note that locations further than 20 miles from Aylesbury, Bucks will accumulate milage costs of 50p per mile.

    Veterinary Referral

    As per the APBC code of conduct, we only work on veterinary referral for behavioural problems. This is to ensure that medical factors that could be affecting the problem are known and can be treated appropriately. It may be the case that the problem does not have a behavioural component and is entirely caused by medical reasons and therefore can be treated by your vet. However, many behavioural problems can have a medical component requiring collaboration with your vet to devise the best course of action.

    Questionnaire

    A questionnaire will be sent to you prior to the consultation, which will allow you to give detailed background information about your pet. The information you give will be explored in depth during the consultation.

    Consultation

    The consultation will last approximately 2 hours, where a full behavioural history will be taken and in conjunction with the veterinary history, a diagnosis will be made. From here, a personally tailored treatment plan is formulated and we will coach you and your pet through how to carry out remedial training.
