Pet Behaviour Consultations and ongoing support

Ongoing pet behaviour therapy and owner support

My role as a pet behaviour counsellor and canine behaviourist is to advice and support you on reducing your pet’s inappropriate behaviours.

The species of animals I work with include: dogs, cats, birds, ferrets and degus.

I do this by treating the underlying emotional issues, but also by helping you to take back control on walks, with the ability to cope in real life, challenging situations.

I have successfully worked with local public figures, high profile businesses and have had several media appearances focusing on the area of behavioural therapy in exotics.

I am Cheltenham based but cover the whole of Gloucestershire (25 miles radius from Charlton Kings, further distances will incur extra travel fees) consulting only on very specialist behaviours including:

  • Abnormal repetitive behaviours
  • Fear based aggression/reactivity
  • Fear based behaviours/anxiety
  • Inappropriate vocal behaviour
  • Phobias
  • Noise sensitivity
  • Multi-house dog issues
  • Avian, feline behaviour and exotics (degus, corvids, ferrets)

Your free discovery session

I invite you to have a free 30 minute phone discovery session where we discuss your dog’s needs and a chance for you to get to know me. It’s simple to book by following the contact details below.

The consultation process

We start by doing a consultation which offers an overview in which we can create and help determine the level of support your dog needs and start the therapy programme. I work only on a veterinary referral for behavioural issues which is a simple form for you to sign including vet’s details and confirmation of a recent medical check up or booking prior to our session.

Details of your consultation:

  • 30 minute pre-assessment discovery call and email start up advice
  • Preparation and liasing with your vet
  • 90 minute to two hour in house consultation
  • Training plans and therapy report 72 hours after our consultation

In the consultation we will go through some control and management strategies, find out your dog’s baseline, without intentionally making it go over its threshold and will start to begin the rehabilitation process.

I only take on new clients who show commitment to receive ongoing support via my unique programme, one off sessions rarely will help your dog in the long-term. In Some cases you will require additional in person coaching sessions to achieve measurable results.

Your initial consultation costs £185
