Dog Behaviour

Phone/Video Session
  • 30 minutes
Behaviour Consultation
  • 2 hour + 1 hour follow up

Do you have a dog that…

…barks and lunges at other dogs or people? Is fearful? Chases vehicles? Is hyperactive? Struggles with separation and being left alone or if you are struggling with any other issue, then a behaviour consultation is required. Behaviour problems can be very frustrating and stressful for any owner, you may have be scouring the internet or books for a solution but are getting conflicting advice. Sourcing a professional like Jo Hinds means you can get specific advice based on your individual dog.

Many behaviour problems can stem from underlying health problems i.e. dogs who are reactive on the lead can be suffering from neck injuries, dogs urinating in the house can have bladder problems, so it is important to have a vet check over your dog first before getting a behaviour specialist in, which could ultimately save you money.

What does the consultation entail?

A pre-questionnaire is sent out prior to the session to gather history regarding the behaviour(s) in question, which is then reviewed in detail in advance of the consultation this includes vet history and any video footage provided. This helps Jo Hinds start to formulate a retraining or behaviour modification plan. During the consultation a detailed explanation of the behaviour causes will be provided, your goals will be discussed and steps to take moving forward. 6 months free on going support and help is regarded as an important part of the process via email and additional follow up sessions are available via telephone/video or 1:1 training sessions.

Can this really be carried out by Telephone or Video?

This solution works really well, I can advise and teach everything that I would in person. Even issues relating to dog to dog aggression or being wary of strangers can be dealt with in this manner, as the initial training has to be worked on outside of these situations working with the threat at a distance. Other benefits from this kind of session is that some dog act differently when visitors are there, therefore remotely observing your dogs behaviour allows me to really see what is going on.  This service has been set up for everyone that needs help no matter where you are based UK or abroad. I can provide advice using different media: Telephone, Whatsapp, FaceTime, Skype, Zoom and more. I am flexible with technology and can use whatever method best suits you.  This facility also can offer cost savings due to removing the need for time for my travel to you.
