Problem Behaviour Assessment and Modification:
When your dog is exhibiting behaviour that is anti-social or impacts on the quality of life, for either the family and or the dog, then the help of qualified professionals working in the field of dog behaviour is required.
Our approach to Problem Behaviour is as follows:
1. Assessment of the problem
interview with dog owner
b. Assessment of current handling methods
c. Observation of the problem area and current approaches
d. Feedback to dog owner with recommendation on how to address problem areas.
2. Behaviour Modification of problem areas
Following the assessment process the recommended plan is implemented with the dog and dog owner. At all times we work with the dog owner to ensure they are skilled and confident to maintain the necessary approaches to embed the correct behaviour in their dog. We form a partnership with the dog owner to achieve the best outcome possible from their dog.
We have found that each dog is an individual and that the best approach varies. It can be a combination of several elements of our service portfolio.
The results that we promise are that the dog owner will have a suite of tactics and approaches to allow them to manage their dog in a variety of situations. They will have an understanding of what the triggers are that elicit the problem behaviour and how to manage or manipulate their actions and or the external environment to best manage their dog.
