For Owners

Help! I’m having problems with my pet!

I am offer a limited number of behaviour consults per month.

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

The initial session will last around 2 hours to give us a chance to chat about:

  • Any problem(s) you are experiencing with your pet – I will explain why your dog, cat or rabbit(s) 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 provided with a written report, any relevant handouts and access to other resources and receive 2 months’ email support. Follow up sessions may be required – these are at an additional cost.

A veterinary referral is needed prior to booking and if relevant the consultation fee also includes any discussions with the referring vet following the session.

Who are these sessions suitable for?

  • Anyone who is experiencing problems with their pet.
  • Anyone who wants a better understanding of their pet.
  • Anyone who is struggling to find other professional training or behaviour support in a timely manner.
  • Anyone who is keen to get started on the right road with any issue that is being experienced.

(*The cost of an initial remote session is £300. Additional costs apply for local house visits. As a full member of the APBC and a CCAB many pet insurance companies cover the cost of the session – excesses and exclusions will apply. Check your policy documents and insurance company for more information.)
