Dog Behaviour Consultations

PLEASE NOTE - DOG BEHAVIOUR & TRAINING CONSULTATIONS ARE CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE REMOTELY


Sally is a qualified and insured Animal Behaviourist with a passion for force-free training, which involves using only kind, science-based methods without any punishments, harsh methods or dominance theory. 


She works with dogs and their humans to improve their relationship and give them the confidence to resolve dog behaviour problems with her support.


Sally has worked hard for many years to learn about canine behaviour and continues to update her knowledge. Please see below for details about her dog behaviour services and her About page for details of her credentials. Sally works in-person within 20 miles of Swadlincote and also remotely.


Veterinary referral may be required in some cases and Sally's fees may be recoverable from pet insurers, so please enquire with them about this.

Remote Consultations

A REMOTE CONSULTATION IS CURRENTLY THE BEST OPTION, EVEN IF YOU LIVE LOCALLY.


Remote consultations aim to tackle similar issues to those for in-person consultations but for clients outside of my usual 20 mile radius of Swadlincote. They may not be suitable in all cases, which is why I ask potential clients to fill in a questionnaire to enable me to assess if a remote consultation will be appropriate. If it is, I carefully analyse the answers provided, ask for further information if required then provide a written Behaviour Modification Plan for them to work through with my support. Remote consultations cost £75-95 each, depending on the basis of each case. Please contact me for details.

Training & Communication

THIS SERVICE IS CURRENTLY ONLY AVAILABLE REMOTELY,

EVEN IF YOU LIVE LOCALLY.


Some dog behaviour problems can be resolved with a few training sessions or advice on how best to communicate with a dog so that they understand what is being asked of them. Issues such as these might include pulling on the lead, jumping up or poor recall. My methods are always force-free and aim to make training enjoyable for dogs and their humans. I offer 1-2-1 private training sessions in the dog's own home or locality for a rate of £45 per 1.5 hour session within five miles of Swadlincote plus mileage of £0.45 per mile for clients up to 20 miles away. Please contact me to find out more.

In-Person Consultations

MY IN-PERSON SERVICES ARE UNAVAILABLE UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.


In-person behaviour consultations are offered within 20 miles of Swadlincote for complex behaviour problems such as separation anxiety, resource guarding, fears and phobias etc. I ask potential clients to fill in a questionnaire then once I am confident that I can help, I arrange a consultation within the dog's own home followed up by a written Behaviour Modification Plan and six months of support via telephone or email. This package costs £120 within five miles of Swadlincote plus mileage of £0.45 per mile for clients up to 20 miles away. Additional follow-up in-person meetings cost £50 each.
