Behaviour problems

Have you got a crazy canine or psycho pooch?

Does your pooch....

Bark all the time Jump up at everyone?
Chase things? Hate travelling in the car?
Chew the house or dig the garden? Mess where he/she shouldn't?
Snap or bite other dogs or people? Act terrified of some noises or have particular phobias? 

Behaviour problems are very frustrating, but most can be helped with time and commitment from you, together with our expert help and support from Ireland's only Kennel Club Accredited Behavioural Trainer, Carol Clark.

Do check with your vet first that your dog does not have a medical reason for the behaviour problem. Feel free to ask your vet for a referral. (We provide a referral service for Cedarmount Vets in Bangor, Gortland Vets in Belfast, Ards Veterinary Clinic and Comber Veterinary Clinic. Various other vet practices in the area also refer clients to us.)

Some cases may be covered by your insurance, but please check wth your insurance company first.

Our packages include:

- a pre-visit form for you to complete and return prior to a package being agreed (see below); 

- an assessment visit, where we clarify any issues from the form, assess your dog, agree what needs to be done, finalise the agreed package, and agree the date(s) for future session(s);

- a written report folowing each session with step by step guidance on the actions we have agreed;

- one or more 1 hour follow up sessions (depending on the package); and
