Dog Behaviour consultation is usually warranted for specific problems that cannot be dealt with in a regular dog or puppy training class, such behaviours would include Aggression, Separation Anxiety, Fears, Phobias, Destruction and Anti Social behaviours.
Most behaviour consultations begin with a referral from your veterinary surgeon; this is important because any possible underlying clinical causes should be explored before behavioural therapy starts.
Following this, an appointment can be made for your consultation with Kiran Brice our dog behaviour specialist either at your nearest Companion Care surgery or at your home depending on which you prefer. The consultation will last approximately one hour, during which time your pet will be thoroughly assessed and an appropriate behaviour/training modification programme will be advised.
Following your appointment, your referring veterinary surgeon will be informed about the advice that you have been given and you will be able to contact Kiran for continued free support for your pet’s problem via email and telephone for as long as you require. Follow up sessions can be arranged if needed afterwards depending on the type and severity of the behaviour. It is a good idea to check if your pet insurance policy will cover behaviour consultations, many do! However, the initial consultation fee is £105 with free follow up via phone and email. We also offer a home visit Behavioural consultation for £160.
