Dog Behaviour

Is your dog driving you to distraction?

I'm sure you'll agree that dogs are fantastic creatures. They are loyal, intelligent and great fun! However, they can also be difficult to manage and it can be hard to know what's going on when we cannot talk to them. Although they have lived alongside us for many years, they do not always find it easy to slot into our lifestyles, which are constantly changing. My approach is to listen and observe to form an assessment of what they are feeling and what they are trying to achieve with their behaviour. Armed with this understanding, alterations can be made and training instigated to reinstate harmony in your household and improve the dog-owner bond.

Common problems I can help with include:

  • Aggressive or 'reactive' behaviour to other dogs

  • Aggressive or 'reactive' behaviour to people or animals

  • Problems with being left alone

  • Excessive barking

  • Firework phobia

  • Other anxieties and fears

  • Resource guarding

  • Attention seeking and more.

“We were referred to Victoria to help with our dog’s hostility towards handling and socialisation. Our experience working together exceeded our expectations; she was incredibly supportive throughout and made the changes we needed to make easy to understand and follow. We have also completely re-learnt how to approach our dog’s behaviour and we can tell how much happier she is as a result. Overall, the knowledge that we gained from Victoria was invaluable and has dramatically improved our relationship with our dog. I would highly recommend her service to anyone looking for support”.
