Dog behaviour help is provided by Anna Patfield, who is a fully qualified and experienced pet behaviourist and trainer, having been helping people towards happier lives with their pets for over 10 years.
If you're having difficulties with your dog, then it's most likely that a 1-1 behaviour appointment is what you need. This is an indepth consultation that gets to the root of your dog's problem (or problems!), and provides you with a behaviour modification program.
Please look here to find out more about what happens and how the behaviour therapy process works > click here.
Most behaviour problems require dog training. And so, most of the time, the session includes a practical element teaching you how to go about the required training.
How? Please download the vet referral form and take it to your vet, and ask them to fill in the form. Your vet may require you to book an appointment with them to determine that your dog is healthy. Your vet will then send the form in, and you will be contacted regarding an appointment. Alternatively, please contact us here
What else? A questionnaire is also required, which we will send to you once you have set up an appointment.
Where? Appointments are generally held at Ardene House Vets on the Kngswells by-pass. Home visits can be arranged at an extra cost.
How much? The cost to develop your behaviour program is £150. Probably about 90% of the time, this is the full cost. Phone and email support is included. This includes all aspects noted above here and presumes that you are attending Ardene House Vets, Kingwwells for your appointment. Occassionally, problems are so complex or a dog had so many problems that further meetings are required. These generally cost £45/hour. Home visits and more than 1 dog is extra.
How many sessions will I need? Most behaviour problems can be dealt with in the 1 session (probably about 90%). This isn't to say that the problem will be fixed. It's not magic... it takes time. However, both the behaviour and the training programs follow clear logical steps that are simple to understand and straight forward to implement. There are times, ofcourse, when behaviour problems are too complex to sort with 1 session. We may be able to provide you with some indication of this when you set up your appointment. Or it may only transpire during the consult.
