dealing with behavioural issues for adult dogs and puppies

Whether you've had your dog from a puppy or your beloved friend has come from a an animal rescue centre, behavioural issues can creep up quickly, often ignored for a while until they become too apparent. If your dog has started to display challenging behaviours that you'd like to change, I will work with you and your canine companion to unearth the reasons behind these behaviours and from there, create a bespoke behaviour modification programme to turn the unwanted into the desired. 

We will look at all aspects of your dog's life, including diet and daily routine in an initial assessment session, which generally take place at the client's home. Depending on the behavioural problem, some consultations may have to take place away from your home, this is something we will determine in a telephone conversation prior to my first visit.

Each session is followed up with a detailed report and training programme.

I cover behavioural issues including:

  • On lead reactivity

  • House training issues

  • Excessive jumping up

  • Excessive barking

  • Issues with nipping

  • Excessive chewing

  • Resource guarding (food, toys, sofa/ bed, etc.)

  • Separation anxiety

  • Dog to dog reactivity

  • Dog to human reactivity

Behaviour consultations require a minimum booking of 4 sessions - £400 - which includes the initial 90 minutes assessment session followed by 3 x 60 minute sessions .

Our new dog, as a rescue, came with a number of issues. Alex was hugely supportive, kind and encouraging both during training and after and was able to offer rational explanations and modify the training so it felt extremely tailored to us and our dog.
