Why refer to me?
I can help with a wide range of issues
Through referral I can support your clients with problems including aggression (to other dogs and people), separation related problems, anxiety/fear/phobias, nuisance behaviours and more. All packages are bespoke and more than one issue can be addressed in the same package.
I am qualified and accredited
There is no formal regulation in the animal training and behaviour field and so it can be difficult to know who you should refer your clients to. There is guidance for vets from the Veterinary Times on how to refer responsibly to suitable professionals.
I work in partnership with you
In line with good practice, I always consult with the client’s Veterinary Surgeon and request a clinical history before the initial consultation for behaviour cases. Following the initial consultation I provide referring vets a summary report and a further summary when I conclude the package with the client.
Your clients may be able to claim on their insurance
I am a full member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) and a registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist with the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC). My work is therefore often covered by pet insurance policies. Clients should seek clarification from their insurer on what is covered and the limits as policies vary.
