Behaviour Counselling Services P.E.T. provides a professional behaviour consultancy service, helping you with problems that you may be experiencing with your pet dog, cat, rabbit or parrot. Usually pet behaviour problems develop gradually but over time they can start to impact on your animal’s welfare and affect your relationship with them. Obviously dealing with a problem early on means that there is a better chance of a successful outcome although a number of deep rooted problems can be overcome with appropriate advice and training.
Some of the types of problems that P.E.T. can help with include:
- Fear related aggression •
- Toileting issues •
- Noise phobias •
- Separation related problems •
- Excessive barking •
- Anxiety and stress •
- Control problems •
- Stress related problems •
- Toileting issues •
- Inter-cat aggression •
- Aggression towards people
P.E.T. can also help with problems affecting rabbits and advise you on appropriate housing and how to enhance the environment they are kept in to prevent inter-rabbit aggression. Parrots tend to suffer from a number of stress related problems and help can be given to prevent and manage these issues.
The title animal behaviourist is not protected so virtually anyone can set up a consultancy service. Using P.E.T. means that you have the peace of mind that you are using a well-qualified and professionally endorsed counsellor.
Caroline is a full member of The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC). In order to gain this status, the APBC rigorously test and check an individual’s background to ensure that they meet the highest standards, use scientifically proven techniques and follow reward based training procedures.
What to Expect
Before proceeding you need to be referred by your veterinary surgeon. This is important because a number of medical conditions can give rise to behaviour problems. Once your pet has a clean bill of health your vet can contact Caroline. Referral documents are available to download from www.apbc.org.uk .
You will be asked to complete a questionnaire and a mutually convenient appointment can be made. Consultations can take place in your home, at your veterinary practice or in some cases via skype. The consultation takes around 2 hours and during that time an assessment is made of your animal, a full history is taken and Caroline will identify the motivation for the problem. Immediate advice is given and you will be provided with useful reading material. Demonstrations of training techniques will be given. A full and detailed report is sent to you to follow with the action plan clearly set out. As most problems require some further training you will be put in touch with trainers who are professionally qualified and able to follow a behaviour modification plan (BMP) using appropriate training techniques.
The cost includes telephone / email support for 1 month after the consultation.
Do remember that consistency and compliance to the BMP is crucial in seeing improvements so you must be realistic about the time you can give and your commitment to the programme.
