Behaviour Problems


Pets play an important role in our lives, and the bond can be so strong that many owners feel that their pet is a member of the family. However, our companion animals suffer from a huge variety of behaviour problems, such as aggression, fears and phobias, separation anxiety, house-soiling, destructive behaviour and, for dogs, barking or howling. In fact, any behaviour that causes anxiety, stress or embarrassment to the owner, and causes the owner-pet relationship to deteriorate, could be defined as a behaviour problem.

As well as the concern for the owner, abnormal behaviour may well indicate psychological distress, and can cause stress and physical harm to the animal, so don't delay in seeking professional assistance.

Veterinary Referral

Because behaviour problems are sometimes a symptom of pain or another underlying medical condition, it is essential that your pet is seen by a vet to rule out medical causes before you begin behavioural modification.

Download a referral form here and ask your vet to complete and sign it, then bring it along to your behavioural consultation. My report will then be copied to the referring vet to be kept with your pet's medical records.

I will not be able to carry out your behavioural consultation without the vet's signed referral form.
