Behavioural Consultations

An Inital consultation usually lasts up to 2 hours and all training is tailor made to meet the owner's requirements,
with a 1 hour follow-up session 2 weeks after intial consultation.
Please note: All aggression cases are dealt with on Vet Referrals Only, for further information please contact us.

Aggression can be helped,  but not always cured. Just as a Larbrador can be stopped from retrieving but it will still have a desire to retrieve.

There are two ways of helping the problem: One way is to go the behaviourist route where the problem is analysed and a program is developed to change the dog's behaviour.  The other way is the training route, think of this... if a dog walks well on a lead, come back when told and stops when asked most aggression problem managable.  However if you approach the problem combining both methods, it results in the most efficient way of dealing with aggression problems.

Separation Anxiety
Separation anxiety can be triggered when dogs become upset because of the separation from their guardians, the people they're attached to.  Escape attempts by dogs with separation anxiety are often extreme and can result in self injury and household destruction, especially around exit points like windows and doors.

Unwanted Behaviour
Somethimes your dog will produce a behaviour that is not aggressive or a symptom of SA, but is still unwanted behaviour such as excessive barking
mouthing, etc.

How to book Richard for a Consultation.

Contact me to discuss your dogs' unwanted behaviour and book a consultation on 0113 2607292 or

The Behavioural Consultation will take place at the owner's home and will be 2 hours in duration. During the consultation I will assess your dogs behaviour and after completing a behavioural questionnaire, I will then discuss a suitable behavioural modification programme for you to follow, including any practical training appropriate to the problem.

A full Behavioural Modification programme report will be emailed to you giving specific information and instructions to follow.

Two weeks after the initial consultation a follow up consultation is arranged (lasting 1 hour) to make sure everything is going to plan and to discuss any issues you may have with regard to the programme.

With some unwanted behaviour more training or guidance may be required. Richard can plan a training programme tailor made to your requirments to enhance your good work.
