Pet risk assessments
for child adoption and fostering placements
Are you a prospective adoptive parent or foster carer who’s been asked to obtain a pet behaviour assessment? Or are you a social worker needing advice about a family pet?
As a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC), I am often called upon to assess the potential risk dogs, and other pets, may pose to children. Working with adoptive parents, foster carers, and social workers, to ensure child safety, I carry out independent risk assessments across Lincolnshire, Nottinghamshire, and Yorkshire (other areas may be considered, please contact me to discuss).
Are you a parent, adopting a child?
Have you been asked by an adoption agency to obtain a risk assessment for your pet, to support your adoption application? Don’t worry, I can help you.
I can prepare a thorough risk assessment and give clear advice on practical home considerations, as well as how to effectively and safely introduce children and pets.
Are you a concerned social worker?
Has a particular incident occurred and you need professional advice as to the potential risk a pet poses to a child’s safety?
I’m here to support you with independent advice and recommendations, based on many years experience in the canine behaviour field.
The assessment process
The cost for this professional service is £345 based on a single dog, plus mileage/travel fees incurred. Please note that a separate quote can be provided for a multi-dog/pet household.
