Our Services

We provide support services for complex dog behaviour cases. We specialise in 'aggression and reactivity', be it towards other dogs or humans. We cover South Devon, including Paignton, Torquay, Brixham, Totnes, Newton Abbot, Teignmouth and Dawlish.

Did you know that the dog training and behaviour industry is unregulated ?  This can mean some self proclaimed dog behaviourists are not actually qualified or up to date with their education, and there is no accountability for their services or actions.

I ensure I stay fully accredited, and have to commit to ongoing professional education and developemnt as part of that accreditation. I am also covered by the UK Dog Behaviour and Training Charter, the leading self regulation body. This means you can employ me in the confidence that I am suitably qualified and experienced and that you will be receiving the latest, science led advice and support.

I believe it is important to be transparent and up front about the services we offer and how much it will cost. We realise getting help from a professional can prove expensive and have set out to make the prices as affordable as we can.

BEHAVIOUR ASSESSMENTS - £195  (We accept payment by Bacs)

In the first instance, please contact us with your behavioural enquiry. If appropriate, a free ‘discovery’ call will be arranged to discuss your support needs and see if our services are right for you. We are only taking on limited cases at the moment, so if we are unable to offer you support we will send you details of other suitably qualified professionals in the local area.

Initial Behaviour Assessment : £195 (to be paid before the initial consult). The assessment process is as follows :

  • You complete an online history form. We will also request a vet history or ask you to get a vet check.
  • We will then meet with you and your dog to perform the necessary assessment to help understand why your dog is behaving the way they are.
  • As part of the assessment, we will look at the behaviour, and explore other possible aggrivating factors such as phsyical or emotional pain/discomfort. we follow a trauma informed approach, and this forms part of the assesment.
  • Based on the assessment you will be given a tailored support plan. You will also be sent handouts and links to videos relevant to the support plan if appropriate.
  • An inperson follow up will be arranged to assess progress.
  • If extra observations are appropriate they will be included in the initial assessment price.
  • This price also includes any communications I make with the clincal team and setting up referrals to other colleagues (such as physios).

Ongoing individual support sessions or coaching walks: £50 (may be subject to additional travel charges). If there is likely to be a lot of support sessions needed, this fee maybe reduced.

Vitrual Consults - £80.

For some less complex cases, or for those who do not live in the local area and still want my input, I can offer virtual consultations by zoom. A history form would still be needed ahead of the consultation. Virtual consults are around an hour in length.
