Help For Problem Behaviour
Bringing You Peace Of Mind
A dog’s behaviour can sometimes be scary, and at times even embarrassing. Whatever your concern or worry, we’re here to help so living with your dog can be a pleasure again.
Behaviours develop through a combination of breed, individual personality, medical issues and prior experiences. Our job is to piece together all the different elements which tell your dog’s story so we can develop an individualised treatment plan.
The types of behaviour problems we can help with include issues involving anxieties, fears, aggressive behaviour, separation-related issues and repetitive behaviours.
How to Arrange a Behaviour Consultation
Contact us to see how we can help, and we’ll offer immediate management &/or safety advice.
Contact your vet to explain you’d like a behaviour consultation for your dog. Then ask them to complete our online Veterinary Referral.
Complete our online Behaviour History so we can collect some basic information about your dog and their behaviour that’s causing concern.
Once we’ve received all completed paperwork, we’ll contact you to book an appointment and take payment of a deposit (or payment of full balance if booking made within 2 days of an appointment).
What to Expect
One-off Behaviour Consultations are charged at £285.00 to include assessment and report with advice and recommendations. A non-refundable deposit of 50% of the consultation fee is payable at the time of appointment booking; and the final balance will be automatically taken 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment date.
You are encouraged to consider booking a Behaviour Package as these are more cost effective in the long run for you; and both you and your dog will benefit from more regular ‘hands-on’ support. Contact us for package details and costs.
Hourly follow-up appointments, where applicable and requested by you, are charged at £65 p/hr. If you are seen in person, travel and mileage fees may be incurred.
If you have a pet insurance policy which covers behaviour, generally you will be able to make a claim for fees as Alison is a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC). Please contact your pet insurance company directly to clarify this before you proceed.
