Canine Behaviour Consultations
Behaviour consultations are only delivered as a package to ensure we are able to support clients over several weeks and months. Given the complexities of most established behaviour problems that we help with, we do not promote a 'quick fix' as often portrayed by inappropriate media. Setting realistic objectives and timescales is an essential part of a professional and supportive service and leads to systematic and positive behaviour rehabilitation.
The behavioural consultation process costs £48 an hour but is only available as a package costing £360 and is payable by two installments of £180. In some instances a payment plan may be agreed.
If the client has insurance then we advise them to check their policy to see if behaviour work is covered before booking an appointment and if so they will be able to claim back most fees associated costs. Please call and ask to speak to Ben Mckechnie, Clinic Manager or Dean Hart Lead Behaviourist for guidance without obligation.
The package price includes the following;-
* Assistance with the Vet Referral process.
* All paperwork & ongoing communication with all associated parties and insurance companies.
* Initial consultation with behaviourist & rehabilitation trainer.
* Full & detailed written report and treatment plan.
* Information, guidance and training on suitable products, supplements and equipment.
* Additional handouts where appropriate and guidance on suggested further reading.

Fee:- £360, divided into two payment installments of £180
Specialist Behavioural Dog Grooming
We are able to offer support and behaviour consultations for those dogs that suffer with anxiety, fear and phobias associated within dog grooming or being handled within similar situations. Very often aggression demonstrated on the grooming table is directly related to anxieties and fear responses.
The referral process and fee is the same as a standard canine behavioural consultation with the exception that we work with a specialist rehabilitation dog groomer. IMPORTANT NOTE TO HELP: If the owner has insurance cover for behaviour work then fees for this service may also be claimed.
Fee:- £360, divided into two payment instalments of £180.
