The average initial behaviour consult usually lasts about 2-3 hours. It can be carried out either at your home or in-clinic. Certain behavioural problems are most effectively assessed at your home, given it is your pet’s primary environment. I can advise at the time of booking.
For in-clinic visits, I am available at Rose Bay Vet Hospital or Woollahra Veterinary Hospital in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs.
During the consult we take time discussing your pet’s past experiences, the problem behaviour and their environment to allow me to make an initial determination. We then discuss the prognosis, target goals and strategies to modify that behaviour as well as any medications that might support our objectives.
After the session I will thoroughly document the case and provide you materials including instructions, techniques and goals to begin implementing at home. In our next session we have a quick “debrief” on progress and any challenges you faced before progressing with our strategy. Behaviour is all about teamwork. My aim is to ensure you feel supported and confident at all times.← FAQS
