Behaviour

Training vs Behaviour

Animal Training is the art of teaching an animal new skills and desired behaviours. Puppy classes are a perfect example of dog training. During the classes, we teach the puppies desirable life skills.

Behaviour requires a lot more knowledge of dog emotions and psychology.  Behaviour modification includes working on eliminating already existing problem behaviours, which are either undesirable for you or unpleasant for your dog and others that come in contact with your dog.

 

Behavioural problems include:

Aggression towards people • Aggression towards dogs • New baby preparation or anxiety • Separation distress • Fears, phobias and anxiety (such as fear of loud noises, fireworks etc.) • Excessive barking • Chasing livestock, joggers, cyclists, traffic • Destructive behaviour • Multi-dog household problems • Repetitive or compulsive behaviour

 

Experience

Victoria is a reputable and experienced dog behaviourist, a full member of the International Canine Behaviourists and International Companion Animal Network and, therefore you can be assured that she is able to offer you the most up to date, science-based, and humane training methods to help restore your relationship with your dog.

Behaviour Consultations

Your first consultation will involve an in-depth assessment of your dog’s behaviour. Here I will find out about your dog’s routine and ask a series of questions with the aim of finding out why your dog is experiencing these behavioural issues. This will take around 1.5 hours via Zoom. I will ask you to send me video evidence of your dog via WhatsApp, prior to the consultation and to complete and return the attached form. Once I have all the information I need, I will give you control and management advice to support you right away.

If it is necessary, I will liaise with your vet to ensure your dog is not in any pain which might affect behaviour.

After the consultation, I will send you a training plan and we can then begin our 1-2-1 specialist behaviour lessons. Your lessons should take place every fortnight.
You will receive detailed videos of exercises to teach your dog, accompanying handouts and ongoing email support throughout the programme.
