It is becoming widely recognised that treating behaviour problems is a specialised field. As a qualified behaviourist I can help you to understand your pet’s behaviour and work with you to solve any problems. I have many years experience in advising pet owners on the best way to care for their animals. I have completed the prestigious Post Graduate Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour Counselling at Southampton University - a leading qualification in this field. I have also completed a research M.Sc. in welfare at the same university. My first degree is in Zoology and I have a masters degree in education. I am a Certified Clinical Animal Behaviourist (ASAB). I am listed on the ABTC web site. I am a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC). I live with 12 dogs of my own, 11 of which have come from a variety of rescue situations.
Behaviour counselling involves listening carefully to you, the owner, in order to understand the problem. It also involves observing the animal's behaviour and taking a full history. The information you give is analysed and used to come up with a programme to alter your pet’s behaviour. The programme is not a quick solution, and it will often take time for you to see an improvement. If the problem has been building up over a long time, it will not be fixed instantly. The programme involves all aspects of the animal's life with you - it is a holistic approach involving management, reward-based training and supportive therapies to help improve unwanted behaviours.
The visit will last around 2-3 hours and is followed up with telephone and email support. You will receive a Behaviour Modification Programme - which is your action plan to follow with your pet.
Many pet insurance companies will accept claims based on behaviour issues, but require the behaviourist to be a CCAB or member of the APBC, as this confirms a high level of training and understanding of animal behaviour. Jane is a Certified Clinical Animal behaviourist (CCAB) and a full member of the APBC (Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors).
