Dog Behaviour

A dog behaviour consultation to help you change your dog behaviour problems with thorough effective behaviour modification plans.

Help With Dog Behaviour Problems

What to Expect

Do you love your dog but his or her behaviour is causing stress that is also affecting many aspects of life?

Dog Behaviour concerns often get worse if not addressed. A normal discerning owner may seek behaviour advice for a variety of reasons. Canine Whispers looks at your dog as an individual and works with you on a behaviour modification programme, from dog behaviour consultation, to follow up advice and support. We aim to repair the dog-human bond, influence your dog’s behaviour choices and thus help the effect it has on family life, for the better.

There’s No Magic Wand!

We understand how important your dog is to you and that dog behaviour problems, or concerns can naturally feel stressful, that’s why we use Dog Whispers with positive training methods to get your dog back on track. It takes time and progress in stages. Resolution is relative to the duration of the problem, severity, etc. It will need your input, dedication & consistency by all people in the household, with prevention of rehearsal of the poor behaviour and instigating simple strategies and management policies. Luckily we’re here to help.

Your dog’s behaviour problem will be addressed with a dog behaviour consultation package. An initial phone call is held, so you can outline what behaviour concerns you. There is no charge for this initial call. However I do not ascertain cause, or advise in this call. If you want to book advice, to gain the asset of many dedicated hours, of a clinical animal behaviourist working on your case. A deposit and fee is paid, to secure your appointment and consultation package. Prior the to dog behaviour consultation, I ask clients to fill out a dog behaviour questionnaire.

Consult your veterinarian, to diagnose related underlying clinical reasons, that may cause, or affect exhibited behaviour. If it doesn’t compromise safety, or welfare, a video of your dog can be sent, via a link to your DropBox account and include this link in an email to me, or if brief, as an iMessage. I will review history of your completed questionnaire, video and information provided, prior to consultation.

An up to three hour dog behaviour consultation is held with household members, at a mutually convenient time. The dog is assessed and behavioural issues are systematically explored. This includes discussions, demonstrations, management strategies and training. A consultation is followed up with a dog Behaviour Report. Sent a few days later. This contains a personalised dog behaviour modification plan, tailored for you and your dog. A dog behaviour report summary is also provided for your veterinarian.

There are no quick fixes for behavioural problems and the success of the programme is governed by your consistent work and patience. Support is included after consultation, for you to contact Canine Whispers by phone, or email for the agreed duration. This guides you and your dog forward, in stages with the plan, as this is how your dog will learn best.

This thorough consultation process is available in 3 package types:

Virtual Behaviour Consultation

A video call appointment is set. The consultation is 1.5–3 hours long with your household members. This includes behaviour assessment and live training to guide you and your dog through the process. I may use video and other medium to aid learning. You can discuss your dog and aim your camera at what is relevant. The consultation is followed by a behaviour report with support available via phone or email for one month after the initial video call.

PRICE: £150

Home Behaviour Consultation

Some cases may best be suited to a home visit. This involves a consultation at your home (up to three hours) held with household members. Also included is a thorough face-to-face behaviour assessment, personal training and management strategies for you and your dog. A plan is then developed in stages tailored specifically to your dogs needs. Support is then available via phone, or email up to four weeks after this consultation.

PRICE: £200

Gold Home Behaviour Consultation

Require extra support? Like the home service this package contains an initial consultation (up to 3 hours) with household members including personal training, management strategies and a behaviour report tailored for you and your dog. As well as the standard 4 weeks support, a follow up 1 hour behaviour training session (in person or virtual), or a video review of progress with feedback, can be booked within this period to work with you on your plan, or develop training.

PRICE: £250


With follow up training and support sessions to suit you.


Puppy Consultation

A Puppy Consultation helps you to teach your puppy good manners and desired behaviour, to prevent problems developing and it gives you the information, or advice that you might need. Planning to get a new puppy can be an exciting and busy time. New owners naturally have many questions on the best way to deal with, normal puppy development behaviour problems and teaching a growing puppy effective life skills to become a sociable well rounded individual. Vital information and experiences needs to be learnt by the puppy within the critical 12 week period. Canine Whispers can help you set your puppy up to succeed in their new home, with training techniques and management styles. Virtual, or home consults are great for lockdown puppies!

Rescue Consultation

Congratulations on adopting a rescue. It’s a fact that more than 65% of rescue dogs exhibit some kind of behaviour problem. Perhaps dog behaviour problems become more apparent as you get to know your dog. These may be minor, or complex. After major life changes, any rescue dog will need a time of adjustment and rehabilitation, we can advise on the most effective methods to help your dog settle in. Behaviour problems don’t disappear without help. With professional guidance and support, you can help your rescue dog to overcome dog behaviour problems and become a wonderful pet in its new home. Your dogs future is in your hands. From the beginning it is important to instigate a behaviour plan so your new dog has the best potential to be successful in life.
