Your Dog Behaviourist
Every dog is different, with their own emotions and their own individual way of responding to the people and the environment around them. Each pet owner has a unique relationship with their dog, however at times it can be a struggle to understand why your dog does certain things and how to manage their behaviour. The following packages can help you understand your dog’s unique needs within their environment and how that fits with your lifestyle.
We will work together to help you and your dog understand each other better and to support you through the behaviour challenges you are facing. This will assist to improve your dog’s quality of life and the companionship you share.
During our sessions together detailed information will be gathered from you and by observing your dog. We will discuss your dog’s history, your concerns, observe video footage of your dog’s daily activities and of problem behaviours (if safe or appropriate). We will also observe subtle body language signals, if your dog can relax and how they do so, choices your dog makes on where to relax, and the way your dog interacts with their environment and you.
Once all the information is gathered, the cause of the problem and how to manage the problem are discussed with you in detail. A plan suited to your family, your environment, and your dog is then discussed. This may include how to keep everyone safe, how to reduce triggers, developing appropriate coping strategies with the aim of improving their behaviour.
