Behaviour Modification

Behaviour Modification is taking your dogs emotionally-charged behaviour and using a method called desensitisation and counter-conditioning to change how they feel over a period of time. This tackles the underlying issue rather than masking it. Some trainers or TV shows will appear to magically fix your dog's behaviour using quick corrections but these aversive methods work by covering up your dog's feelings using shock tactics. In short, they may stop the behaviour there and then but your dog still feels the same. This means that the behaviour may leak or 'blow up' at a later date: "They just bit me out of nowhere!" Behaviour Modification follows a similar method to human therapy in a way that involves lifestyle changes, ensuring needs are met, changing the thought process and developing positive coping mechanisms. Medication is not the first port of call but in some cases is* there as an option to aid, not replace, the behaviour modification process.

Covered Behaviours:

  • Separation Anxiety & Hyper-Attachment

  • Resource Guarding & Possession Aggression

  • Dog-to-Human Aggression & Reactivity

  • Dog-to-Dog Aggression & Reactivity

  • Generalised Anxiety Disorder

  • Noise Sensitivity & Phobias
     

The Process:

  • After booking, in your Product Order e-mail, you will be able to schedule in the first or all of your sessions using my booking calendar and your code. If you book the one off Behaviour Assessment, you will be able to select a time and date before booking. My normal waiting time is 2-3 weeks on average so please book ahead
     

  • Complete and return the behaviour questionnaire found in your booking confirmation e-mail at least 3 days prior to your consultation
     

  • Take the attached vet referral form to your vet for them to sign after having given your dog a health check. This opens a line of communication between your vet and I to discuss and/or rule out any underlying medical conditions that may be causing or exacerbating behaviours
     

  • For the first consultation, I will come to your house and discuss your dog's behaviour, needs and formulate a training plan suitable for your dog and household (During Covid, all consultations will be held outdoors). The remaining sessions will be held at an appropriate location for your dog's issue/s working on a continuation of the training plan. The sessions are usually between 2-4 weeks apart but this is entirely up to you
     

  • At the end of your package you have the option to upgrade to Deluxe or pay as you go. The length of package is not indicative of how long it takes to solve the problem. Your success will be dependant on your consistency and dedication
