About Allyson & the Clinic
The Pet Behaviour Clinic is a friendly and professional pet behaviour service, offering expert dog and cat behaviour consultations on veterinary referral. Our team of behaviourists are dedicated to improving the welfare of you and your pet; providing effective and practical training support each and every day. Whether you own a feline or canine companion, or if you are a prospective pet owner, look no further than the Pet Behaviour Clinic.
Firstly, we will conduct a full assessment of your pet’s behaviour and emotions, focusing on understanding, preventing and managing behaviour problems. We will then formulate a bespoke behaviour modification and training plan. Our specialist team provide ongoing guidance and support, following up with our customers to talk through recommended techniques and training, and/or discuss further environmental modifications (if needed).
The Pet Behaviour Clinic serves the areas of Worcestershire, the Cotswolds & North Oxfordshire.
Allyson Giel's journey began in March 2011 when she started attending courses, seminars and events related to dog training and behaviour; during this time, her passion for gentle, kind and humane ways to train dogs was ignited. She trained hard for many years to become a pet behaviourist, before going on to open The Pet Behaviour Clinic.
After completing her Masters degree in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the University of Edinburgh, Allyson became a Karen Pryor Academy Certified Training Partner and a registered Animal Training Instructor with the Animal Behaviour & Training Council. But she didn't stop there! Allyson continues to learn and increase her knowledge, studying up-to-date research and techniques. She is currently studying Animal Nutrition at the University Of Glasgow and is part of the Animal Behaviour & Training Council, the Karen Pryor Academy and is a provisional member of the Association Of Pet Behaviour Counsellors.
Here at the Pet Behaviour Clinic, we specialise in the treatment of most dog and cat behaviour problems. We believe that reward-based methods are the kindest and most effective way for all animals to learn (including ourselves); therefore, we offer a range of rewards within our programmes, including food, praise, toys and clicker training.
We only promote training methods which are rewarding, motivational and reliable, and will benefit both dog and owner in the long-term; helping to build a mutually respectful relationship. All of our methods are based on scientific models and research, as well as drawing on our own experiences and those of world-renowned dog trainers.
The Pet Behaviour Clinic can help reform your pet into a loving member of the family that you can be proud of.
