For Owners

Help! I’m having problems with my pet!

Due to unprecedented demand, I am offering a limited number of one-off coaching sessions per month.

These can be held remotely, or if preferred and local (within a 15 mile radius of BS20) a house visit can be conducted (additional costs apply*).

The session will last around 2 hours and gives us a chance to chat about anything you like, such as:

  • Any problem(s) you are experiencing with your pet – I can explain why your dog or cat might be exhibiting certain behaviours. Very often, simply having a better understanding of the problems leads to a huge shift in how you perceive the issues and your pet.
  • What can be implemented to stop the problems from getting any worse
  • Initial advice on what can be done to improve things.

You will be sent any relevant handouts and access to other resources and receive 2 weeks email support to clarify anything that was discussed.

For behaviour problems, a veterinary referral will be required prior to booking and if necessary the consultation cost also includes any discussions required with the referring vet following the session.

Depending on the problem and suitability, a further remote session may be recommended – this will be at an additional cost*.

Who are these sessions suitable for?

  • Anyone who is experiencing problems with their dog or cat, anywhere in the world.
  • Anyone who wants a better understanding of their pet, to be able to do better.
  • Anyone who is struggling to find other professional training or behaviour support.
  • Anyone who is keen to get started on the right road with any issue that is being experienced.

(*The cost of a remote session is £200. Additional costs apply for local house visits and if an additional remote session is recommended. As a full member of the APBC and a CCAB many pet insurance companies will cover the cost of the session – excesses and exclusions will apply. Check your policy documents and insurance company for more information.)

 Behavioural Consultations

Problem Prevention Consultations

Problem Prevention ConsultationsProblem Prevention Consultations are designed for those getting a new dog, rabbit or cat and wanting advice, either before or just after the pet is first brought home. Alternatively, these are suitable if you are expecting a new baby and want advice about how to introduce the new member of the family to your dog, cat or house rabbit to minimise stress for everybody. Information is given about how to prevent behaviour problems arising and set everyone up for success.
