Dog Behaviour Consultations

Dogs are very much part of family life and when their behaviour becomes a problem, it can be difficult to manage and cause a great deal of stress, which is why I offer in-home dog behaviour consultations within 25 miles of Swadlincote, Derbyshire and also remotely.

Dog behaviour problems come in many shapes and sizes. Some of the most common ones I offer help with include:

  • Aggressive behaviour (not involving bites)
  • Anxiety, fear and nervousness
  • Destructive behaviour
  • Excessive barking
  • House soiling
  • Separation issues
  • Plus many more...

Whatever kind of behaviour is worrying you, please get in touch to book an initial assessment. I am a fully qualified and insured Animal Behaviourist who only ever uses kind, force-free methods.

Dog Behaviour Consultation Process:

FREE Initial Assessment

Contacting me for a free initial assessment is the first step in the consultation process. At this stage, I will either ask a few key questions or send out an in-depth questionnaire, the answers to which will enable me to advise if a remote or in-home consultation would be appropriate, what will be involved and how much this will cost.

'Being Kind To Dogs'

‘Being Kind To Dogs’ is a heart-warming book promoting force-free training and kindness to dogs in all aspects of life.

Encouraging dogs to listen to us begins with earning their trust and never using punishment or harsh methods. Wonderful things can be achieved when we learn how to communicate kindly and effectively.

By combining science, intuition and common sense, we can work with our dogs to resolve their behavioural issues and help them to understand how we would like them to behave in our human world.

‘Being Kind To Dogs’ provides insight into how using force-free methods is the most beneficial way to achieve long-term success and well-balanced, happy canine companion.
