Animal Behaviour Consultations

Animal behaviour consultations address issues including anxieties, fears, reactivity, separation-related issues, house soiling and repetitive behaviour. Problem behaviours are fully assessed, before a diagnosis and treatment plan are established. Treatment plans are kind and ethical and are individually designed to be as manageable as possible. Ongoing support is provided by email, telephone or in person. To ensure problem behaviour is not linked to a medical condition, veterinary referral is essential.

To arrange a consultation:

  • Email or telephone to discuss or book a consultation. I can contact your vet directly for referral purposes, or alternatively you could ask your vet to complete a veterinary referral form. Referral forms can be downloaded here.
  • You will be asked to complete and return a questionnaire. I will email or post this to you, or alternatively you can download this here
    (dog questionnaire / cat questionnaire / rabbit questionnaire).
  • Consultations last 2-3 hours and take place in the owners home. A behaviour diagnosis and treatment plan are established. I then prepare a report and send this to the client and referring vet. Email or telephone support is provided for 12 weeks at no extra charge.
  • Generally, one consultation with further email or telephone support is sufficient.  Follow-up visits can be arranged if necessary. These generally last one hour.

Pet Insurance

Clients with a pet insurance policy which covers behaviour can generally make a claim for my fees, as I am an ASAB-accredited Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CCAB) and a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC). Please contact your pet insurance company directly to clarify this.
