Clients may be referred to a veterinary behaviourist if considered
the best avenue for your dog. This is usually because the dog's
behaviour is a concern and should be investigated by someone who is
qualified to do this, similar to your GP sending you to an
eye or skin specialist when you have a relevant problem.
Not all dog problems are training problems
and some have physiological or psychological problems that require
behaviour modification and medication in order to assist with
learning. Some problem behaviours may seem ‘not that
important’ but can be pre-cursors to more serious problems, or may
indicate an underlying problem that needs to be addressed. Just like
in people, your pet may have excessively high levels of anxiety, or
may have abnormal responses to other animals, people or noises.
I will work in conjunction with the
veterinary behaviourist. This increases the chances of success and
improvement as well as manageability of the main concern.
All staff are police checked and have had first aid training for
humans and animals.
