Private Behaviour Consultations

Three Bad Dogs in the middle of mess sit

Private dog behaviour consultations are in the privacy of your own home or online via Zoom.  

 

Private consultations are customised specifically for you & your dogs issues.  

Gemma Commonly Sees the following & more (please always contact to discuss if you are unsure what you need):

  • Behaviour of high energy/severe stress & distress highlighting that your dog is struggling to cope.

  • Anxiety.

  • Stress.

  • Trauma.

  • Fear/ Phobias.

  • Obsessive Behaviours.

  • Excessive hyperactivity / excessive behaviours e.g. barking & destruction.

  • Aggression & reactivity.

  • General annoyance behaviours,

  • Lack of self/ impulse-control in the home/ social environment.

  • & more...

Gemma will educate & coach you into the reasoning behind your dogs behaviour & give you reassurance on why & where the issue has developed from.  She will ask you questions, listen to your experiences & observe your dog.  Gemma will NEVER deliberately put your dog in situations or use flooding techniques where the dog is forced over coping threshold.  Gemmas advice is safe & for the best intentions of your dogs learning & welfare!

 

Gemma will educate & support you with a custom made behaviour modification plan that is designed specifically for you & your dogs situation.  The plan will help you to help your dog learn calmer, less stressed ways of coping & problem solving.  You will learn how to TEACH your dog with positive reinforcement, clear communication &  reward based techniques on how to deal with situations appropriately & calmly without tipping over their stress threshold.  Your dog will  learn from the experience positively every time!

There are a variety of package options available for Gemma’s time & support to help you, depending on the severity of your concern & your personal confidence.  Whatever you need to get you through it Gemma is there to provide you with support & guidance to help you through the process.  You can usually claim back my fees through your pet insurance policy due to me being a full member of the Associations of Pet Behaviours.

*Reducing & replacing behaviour issues is a process & commitment. There are NO ‘immediate fixes’ despite what is perceived in certain TV programmes or out dated literature.  It is an emotional adjustment & stress reduction development, along with removing learnt habits & creating pathways in the brain for new appropriate habits (a habit in theory approximately can take 30-60days to develop).  It  is a process that cannot be rushed as this can exacerbate the issue rather than resolve it. You are also teaching your dog a new skill of coping, which takes time to convert to depending on the dogs nature & experiences. All cases are individual, one size does not fit all.
