What is Dog Behavioural Therapy
Often unacceptable or unwanted behaviour can be a sign that a dog that is coping with stress. The causes of this strain can vary, and attempting to change a dog’s behaviour without first reducing or removing stress triggers and improving communication, rarely results in a lasting solution. For that reason Sue Kewley Practice therapy usually begins with an initial consultation/consultations where Sue tries to identify stress triggers and suggest coping mechanisms.
A behaviour modification plan will be set in place with therapy undertaken in close co-operation with your Vet, keeping them informed on progress and developments throughout. Sue’s therapy employs almost exclusively positive methods such as treats, clicker etc.
More serious or complex problems (such as some forms of aggression) may take longer to resolve, and may require a number of different approaches including dietary trials, and consultation with the dog’s Vet to check for possible physical or biological causes
Sue has over 30 years of experience dog training and plenty experience in tackling all behaviour. Sue is a Practitioner of the COAPE Association of Applied Pet Behaviourists and Trainers, and went on to undertake further assessment to gain accreditation as a CAPBT Practitioner.
