Dog on dog aggression  

Due to the nature of this behavioural issue, your pet insurance may cover costs incurred, which you are able to claim back with a veterinary referral for which a form may be provided.  

 

Any consultation regarding aggression will take between 2 – 4 hours, depending on the nature of aggression, and how the client’s dog responds on the day to any training demonstrations offered.  

 

Following initial contact via telephone or email, whereby the client may explain the issues being experienced, a questionnaire will be sent for the client to complete prior to consultation. This allows me to plan the day with the information provided regarding the client’s lifestyle, the background history of the dog and the scale of the issue. 

The first part of the consultation will be an interview in the client’s home, to gather further information, and build a picture of behavioural diagnostics. At this stage it is important that the dog is present, alongside any members of the family which may have an influence, so I may observe how the dog interacts in the home.  

 

The second stage will be to test the aggressive response toward other dogs in a real-life situation, most often during a walk. At no stage will we place anyone in any danger, and further equipment may be required and provided, such as a muzzle. In certain circumstances I may call upon my own dogs to act as stooges.  

 

Following temperament testing I will explain what I believe to be the issue, the type of aggression displayed, and the training required to either modify or manage the behaviour. I will never give false hope to any client, and am completely honest regarding the opportunity for behavioural modification or management of the behaviour. In the majority of situations, I am able to demonstrate techniques relating to the training or management programme, alongside basic obedience if required.  

 

On completion of the consultation, I will provide a full written bespoke behavioural report on all of the issues, and training we have discussed and demonstrated. I offer full support via email or telephone, which is encouraged and included in the price.  

Any follow up call will be charged at a reduced rate on discussion.
