Anna provides modern, gentle, effective and reward based methods can help with all sorts of behaviour problems:
Anna says... Your dog is special to you and a lovely, living breathing, emotional individual to me. There are no standard behaviour programmes - it's about your unique family and your very special dog. My aim is to help you and your pet be happy with life.
What is dog behaviour therapy? Modern applied dog behaviour therapy is about getting to the root of your dog's problems, holistically. There's no point in just looking at 1 particular aspect of your dog's barking problem. It's necessary to look at the big picture and consider everything your dog is having difficulty with. Your behaviourist develops a step by step plan that essentially helps your dog feel better in all the situations that are causing problems. Behaviour therapy goes beyond just training, to deal with the reasons that your dog has difficulty with learning. Read more about how Anna's dog behaviour help works here.
Who will be helping your dog? Our qualified dog behaviourist is Anna Patfield. Anna has been fixing dogs' behaviour problems since 2003 and has worked with all sorts of problems from biting to fireworks fear and separation problems.
What are my options?
1-1 Dog Behaviour Help
To book an appointment, or just to have a chat, please call us. If we're going ahead, then, we set up an appointment. Anna will explain about vet referral and will send this and a questionnaire to you. This is about your dog's life and problems (again, don't worry it's not hard to fill in and it's short). Then
It's about educating you and about helping you to really understand your dog's behaviour problems, so that you're able to work on your own.
Of course, on going support is provided as part of the package. Please read more about dog behaviourist consultations here.

We can also help you start your dog's behaviour therapy program THROUGHOUT THE UK. This service was started to help people living in the rural highlands, but can also serve as an excellent starting point.
Having a behaviour chat can resolve your confusions on the different dog behaviour methods, and ensure you don't make mistakes.
Again, this is educational, helpig you to fully understand the problems your dog is facing and helping you to build your own behaviour programme.
