How A Consultation Works
A typical consultation includes an assessment followed by a full behaviour modification programme specific to your dog. They usually last approximately two hours and will take place in your home, at the centre or one of our venues.
The consultation begins and the practitioner will begin to gather the pertinent information both in regard to your dogs general behaviour and lifestyle along with the problem for which you have booked.
It is vital in most cases that the appropriate questions are asked and answered in order to build up a complete and accurate picture so that the correct behavioural diagnosis is made.
The second part of the Consultation involves assessing the dogs behavioural responses and where possible observing the problem.
The practitioner will then explain their findings and possible causes or reasons for the behaviour. You can expect complete honesty from your practitioner and no false hopes will be given. You will be informed of the realistic chances of stopping, reducing or managing the problem.
Understanding how dogs learn is important and this will be explained to you in detail. Pertinent training and handling techniques will be demonstrated to you by example.
Any equipment recommended will be discussed and demonstrated.
After the consultation your practitioner will give you or send you any appropriate behaviour programmes that you are advised to implement with your dog.
We encourage telephone or e-mail contact so we can monitor progress and impart further advice if required.
