Dog Behaviour Problems

For more serious dog behavioural and emotional issues which cannot be resolved in a training environment, we recommend having our dog behaviourist in Surrey hold a consultation at your home. This takes place with the whole family present and lasts around 11/2 – 2 hours. During this time, a history of the problem will be taken and your dog’s behavior will be assessed.

Following this consultation, you will then receive a written report detailing a behaviour modification plan for you to follow, which will have been discussed during the consultation. Follow-up sessions and telephone calls can also be provided. Your vet will also receive a copy of the report.

What types of behaviour problems can we help with?

  • Aggression towards dogs or humans
  • Anxiety and Fears/Phobias
  • Inappropriate behaviours including destructiveness, barking and house-training problems
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorders such as shadow chasing, tail spinning etc

And more…..

Rule out medical causes for the problem behaviour

We work solely on veterinary referrals, so that before our dog behaviourist in Surrey visits we can rule out any medical causes for the dog’s problem behaviour. If your vet has not directly referred you to us, we ask that you take your pet to the vet for a check-up, and ask them to send us confirmation that the problem is not due to medical reasons.

How much does it cost?

The cost of a behavioural consultation with our dog behaviourist in Surrey that includes a written report is £150. Further travel and fuel charges may apply depending on your location.

‘Really wonderful trainer, relieved to see that my dog isn’t aggressive and is actually hyper-anxious so now I can begin helping her. Today was the first time my dog ever interacted with a dog she didn’t know in the park. Looking forward to next appointment and would absolutely recommend.’
