Does your dream on
four feet deliver you some nightmares? Then you have come to
the right place.
that you and your dog can be helped with, are diverse: jumping,
aggression, fear, dirtiness, attention demanding behavior,
excessive barking, claiming and defending objects, anxiety,
compulsive behavior, and so on.
There are many reasons why your dog can show unwanted behavior.
It can be "inconvenient" or "disturbed" behavior. Occasionally,
this behavior originates from the dog himself (breed, genetics,
physical cause,...), sometimes this behavior originates from the
experiences the dog has gained. Often, however, it is a
combination of factors that interact and reinforce each other.
It is appropriate to address the problem before it derails.
Sometimes, an inconvenient behaviour can become a disturbed
a behavioural analysis, we analyse the problem and check the
possible reasons for this behavior problem. Only when we know
the cause of the problem, can we take the right actions to
redirect the undesirable behavior to desired behavior.
After you have filled out a questionnaire and returned it to me,
we make an appointment at your home. This way I can get a better
picture of the behavior of your dog in his familiar surroundings
and of the (practical) ways to redirect this behavior. Through
the questionnaire, followed by an interview and observation of
the dog, we arrive at a diagnosis, cause and prognosis. At the
end of this consultation at your home, you will be given my
advice and some practical guidelines as well as immediate
measures to deal with the problem. Then last a few days after
our appointment, you will receive the written behavioral
analysis, opinions and proposed treatment plan from me.
behavioral analysis will show whether one or several
individual sessions will be enough to redirect your
dog’s behaviour or that a therapy and therefore more
sessions will be necessary to put the behavior of your
dog (back) under control.
The number of
lessons that will be necessary as well as the
regularity, therefore depends on your dog's problematic
behavior as well as yourself. As long as the behavioral
therapy continues, the progress will be followed up.
