Behaviour Problems

Our dogs and cats have an important role in our lives; many of us feel that our pets are members of the family.

However, our companion animals can suffer from a variety of behaviour problems, such as aggression, fears and phobias, separation anxiety, house-soiling, destructive behaviour and, for dogs, barking or howling.

These behaviours cause anxiety, stress or embarrassment to the owner, damage the bond between people and their pets, and are usually the result of underlying distress in the animal, so don't delay in seeking qualified, professional help!

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.
