At The Pet Behaviour Clinic we work with dogs with all sorts of problems. Above is a list of the most common types of problems we see. If you are dealing with any problem on the list, or one that isn't, please get in contact with us to arrange a behaviour consultation.
A behaviour consultation can take place in your home and can last about 2 hours. During the consultation a detailed history of your dog will be taken and the problem behaviour will be assessed.
Here at The Pet Behaviour Clinic we use a technique of assessing problem behaviours called EMRA. The EMRA technique focuses on the emotional state of your pet, the motivation behind the behaviour and what is reinforcing it. By using this technique we can treat the cause of the problem and not just the problem itself.
Once the assessment has been completed you will be advised of a treatment plan. This will be thoroughly explained and demonstrated so you are entirely comfortable will all aspects. A written report will be sent after the visit. This will include a brief history, a summary of the problem behaviour and a list of instructions. On-going support will be available via phone calls and email. Occasionally severe behaviour problems, such as aggression, may require a follow up visit.
One of the most common problem behaviours is dog aggression. If your dog is dog aggressive towards other dogs then during the consultation I will use an extra handler and my own dog so we can do some practical training. This means you will know how to use the training techniques in the real world.
