Canine Whispers provides in-person behaviour consultations for dog behaviour problems in and around the Farnborough area. Owners often seek help for annoying habits or inappropriate behaviour. If ignored, such behaviours can even intensify into increasingly concerning dog behaviour problems, such as aggression or anxieties.
If this resonates with you then you’re not alone. According to Frontiers, the 3rd most-cited and 6th largest research publisher and open science platform, Undesirable behaviour is common among pet dogs “with 72–85% of dogs estimated to exhibit at least one type of problem behaviour” (1).
Behaviour problems can manifest in dogs of all ages. In puppies, common concerns can include obedience and house training, where as in older dogs issues can manifest in the form of soiling, phobias and restlessness at night (2).
Behaviour and Health
At Canine Whispers, we take cases on veterinary referral. This combined approach gives your dog the best potential for success . It is important to first rule out medical factors as a priority, since changes in behaviour could actually indicate a wider health problems. Other things a vet might consider (relative to their diagnostic parameters and the animal’s history) are: Organ dysfunction, neurological issues, problems with the senses, hormonal imbalance, chronic pain, metabolic issue, seizures, and signs of other diseases. Your vet will decide if and how to assess, diagnose or eliminate medical problems. The vet may decide that drugs or natural products may be appropriate for some dogs to facilitate success alongside behaviour modification or that nothing medical is required.
Addressing Dog Behaviour Problems & Finding Solutions
After the referral by the vet, the behaviourist then gets to work to examine history, motivators and presenting signs to deduce predisposing and initiating factors. From this they can then establish what is maintaining the behaviour. With this evidence based on information, observations and interaction they can then help you understand your dog, why it exhibits the behaviour that you are concerned about and guide you towards solutions
Canine whispers provides consultations and support for many behavioural problems in dogs. After this initial assessment we can then offer a bespoke behaviour modification plan tailored to you and your family. This guides you on how to improve the behaviour that you are concerned about. We will use a holistic and effective behavioural approach with ethical, science lead methods. We also offer after-care support to maintain your progress and motivation.
