What is 'Behavioural Assessment & Modification'?

 The first step on trying to resolve any behavioural issue is to define it, objectively and in detail. Once it has been ascertained what the problem looks like the next step is understanding why it is occurring.

To do this I consider underlying emotions and motivations, the animal's history and environment.

It is also essential to consider any possible medical issues that could be contributing to the behaviours of concern. 

Hopefully we will now understand what the problem is and why it is occurring. The next step is to then define treatment goals. These will focus on not just the pet's needs but also their family's. Finally we need to work towards those goals...

 

'Modification' is when we are looking to directly address and change the behaviour of concern. We want to create plans that will keep everyone safe and happy, whilst targeting the root cause of the issue not just the behavioural symptoms. Teamwork is key to success, so we will do our best to create a bespoke plan that helps pets and people work together as effectively as possible.

What sort of problems can I help with?

 

Behaviourists help those pets who are struggling with emotional challenges, which make learning new things hard, or simply coping with day to day life difficult. 

Traditional dog training focuses primarily on teaching specific skills, such as loose lead walking, recall, sit etc.

These are all areas we may cover too, but as part of a wider plan.

Common presenting complaints may include:

- Human directed aggression

- Aggression between household pets 

- 'Reactivity' towards other dogs, animals, people, cars etc 

- Abnormal Repetitive Behaviours 

- Separation Related Problems

- Inappropriate Toileting 

- Handling issues (vet care, grooming, harnessing etc) 

- General Fears (noises, people, vehicles, etc)

ENQUIRY SESSION

Not sure which service you need?

Want to ask some more questions before booking? 

Or maybe you would like to discuss your requirements for private training...

I would recommend booking an enquiry session.

This is a 30-45 min remote meeting to discuss any queries you may have, provide more detail on the process, set some early goals and ensure all parties have realistic expectations. 

These sessions are charged at £25 but this will be deducted from the cost of any services you book in the future.
