Dog Behaviour Consultation at the Centre

Any age POA Typically 2 hours

Behaviour consultations at the Centre have the benefit of providing an environment where your dog's behaviour can be assessed using controlled situation management.

Highly qualified experts on hand to help!

By coming to our Animal Behaviour Centre we can create a safe and constructive environment based on your specific behavioural issue and needs. For example, if your dog has a problem with other dogs then we have "stooge" dogs belonging to staff that can be responsibly introduced. This gives the behaviourist an opportunity to observe your dog's reaction and recommend ways of managing the behaviour. Please complete the enquiry form and one of our team members will contact you.
