Behavioural Consultations

Behavioural problems are recognised as one of the main causes for the breakdown of the pet-owner bond due to the stress and isolation they can cause. It is not uncommon to have sought help from a number of different sources and with the mountains of controversial advice, it can be very confusing to know where to turn. A behavioural consultation will help you to establish the underlying motivations for the behavioural problems and together a comprehensive treatment plan will be devised. All aspects of your life and your pets life will be considered in order to reach the most successful outcome. Click here for the fees or to contact Ali.
