Pet Behaviour Consultations and ongoing support

Premium pet behaviour therapy support based in Cheltenham covering the whole of Gloucestershire, UK and Europe

A bespoke 6 part assessment, to get baseline foundation results and some wow moments! 

– Behavioural support, more than training your dog

My role as a pet behaviour counsellor and canine behaviourist is to advice and support you on reducing your pet’s inappropriate behaviours, making your life more stress free!

– Specialising with canine anxiety

The species of animals I (Helen Motteram, BSc Hons) work with include: dogs, cats, birds, ferrets, corvids and degus. Although my main specialist area is helping owners who own an anxious or reactive dog.

– Help you to cope in real life situations! 

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 and my work with anxious dogs.

– Areas I cover

I am Cheltenham based but cover the whole of Gloucestershire and all UK and Europe (with additional travel costs) 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 15 minute phone discovery session where we discuss your pet’s needs and a chance for you to get to know me. It’s simple to book by following the contact details below.

Please book your free discovery call on: helen@socialpawscheltenham.co.uk

The consultation process – your initial 6 part assessment

The consultation is a unique process offering full maximum foundation support. It is much more than an hour of my time between 3 to 5 hours (UK travel day rate for areas outside Gloucestershire). Please note I only take on client’s who are commited to a minimum of 2 months support. 

I start by doing a consultation which offers an overview to create and help determine the level of support and ongoing programme your pet needs. 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:

Part 1 – 15 minute pre-assessment discovery call and email start up advice

Part 2 – preparation, history taking and liasing with your vet

Part 3 – 90 minute to 2 hour in house consultation

Part 4 – training plans and therapy report 72 hours after our consultation

Part 5 – follow up call

Part 6 –  2 weeks additional email support

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. You will receive some mini wins and successes.

I only take on new clients who show commitment to receive ongoing support via my unique programmes, 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.
