After the questionnaire is received and examined, you will receive a call to arrange a time for the consultation. The consultation takes about 2-3 hours and will include assessment of the environment and recommendations on how the environment in which your dog lives can be arranged to aid progress towards our goals.
Behaviour modification is often an important component of therapy. You will receive a demonstration during the consultation on how this can be achieved to improve your dog's wellbeing and ability to cope in situations with a behaviour that is more desirable to you. Please feed your dog normally on the day of the consultation. It is important to have some of your dog's favourite treats and also his/her favourite toys available for the consultation but please keep them hidden away.
Video footage of your pet's behaviour can be highly beneficial but please do not take video footage if it is likely to encourage any aggression.
I look forward to helping your dog with the problem that is affecting his/her wellbeing and causing you concern.
Sincerely,Dr Sally Nixon BVSc MANZCVS (veterinary behaviour)
