Behaviour Rehabilitation

Most people simply require their dog to be well behaved, living sociably and peacefully as part of a family. However, sometimes the communication between owner and dog can break down, leading to dogs who react to other dogs and people, suffer with separation related problems, become nervous, fearful or phobic, chase vehicles, joggers, cyclists etc.

With over 30 year’s experience, I have a natural intuitive ability to read and pick up on the subtle signals. Combined with (higher level) relevant theoretical knowledge, I use a psychological approach to determine the motivation of the individual difficulties, rather than simply treating the symptoms.

It is advisable that you contact your veterinary surgery prior to booking an appointment to ensure that any underlying medical issues are ruled out. Prior to your appointment, I will contact your veterinary surgeon for a clinical history and endorse referral.

Understanding the consultation process is important. Initially you will want and need to relay information regarding to the specifics of the behaviour you consider to be problematic, however, ultimately, I will encourage you to discuss your dog’s full history and reactions in all aspects of life. This will enable me to understand your dog’s behaviour from both your dog’s perspective and your perceptive. Your dog’s behaviour during the online consultation and the behaviour described by yourself will be explained and the likely underlying emotions producing those resultant behaviours. Whilst you may feel that you already have a good understanding of your dog’s behaviour, research suggests that in general owners are likely to only have a low level of understanding of the behavioural signals performed by their dog. I will therefore, try to describe and discuss your dog’s behaviour during the consultation, helping you to recognise the emotional motivations of your dog’s body language.

I will not simply make suggestions for symptoms BUT provide solutions for treating the cause. 

Understanding how I can help is important.


Online Sessions:

There’s no difficult technology needed to do a virtual/online appointment. All you need is a computer, smartphone or tablet with a webcam and an internet connection, and you are ready to go!

      • I use ZOOM because it is easy to access and use, as well as being secure.
      • ONLINE sessions provide FLEXIBILITY.
      • LIVE sessions mean I’ll be there with you in your home, watching your dog, interactions, the layout of your home. Just as I would if I came to visit you, without causing your dog to become stressed
      • You can take me with you on walks so that I can see how your dog behaves around other dogs or people. In effect, I’m there with you.

Session One – Understanding & Background to Behaviour

I will encourage you to discuss everything about your dog, their daily lifestyle and behaviour. This will enable me to understand your dog’s behaviour from both your dog’s perspective and yours. We will focus on the specific difficulties you are experiencing and consider to be problematic. Virtual consultations enable me to take a history whilst observing your dog in your home, in a natural relaxed setting.

Session Two –Foundations to Better Behaviour & First Steps

From the first session I will have determined the motivation for your dog’s unwanted behaviour and the underlying emotions producing those resultant behaviours. Whilst you may feel that you already have a good understanding of your dog’s behaviour, research suggests that in general owners are likely to only have a limited understanding of the behavioural signals performed by their dog.

In this session I will explain the emotions involved and motivation for your dog’s behaviour, helping you to recognise the emotional motivations of your dog’s body language. Owner’s frequently report that gaining an understanding of their dog’s behaviour helps them appreciate their dog’s emotional state.

We will then begin to build firm foundations for better behaviour, focusing on ensuring you have everything you need to achieve this crucial start in working with your dog towards better behaviour.

Session Three – Next Steps

Having started to see positive changes in your dog’s behaviour this session will focus on developing previous advice and introduce further suggestions and recommendations, continuing to work towards your goal in helping your dog.

Support and Aftercare

I am committed to providing continued support to all clients. I believe that owners need ongoing support and regular feedback as this enables me to ensure the advice is applied consistently and I can highlight any potential setbacks and adapt advice accordingly. Support and Aftercare is via virtual updates. In addition, clients are invited to join an online Community Support Group where they have access to relevant literature and handouts. This support group provides clients an opportunity to chat to other owners who may be experiencing similar issues with their dog.
