Behaviour Counselling

Behaviour counselling sessions are offered on a 1-2-1 basis. In order to help you and your dog as fully as possible, all aspects of your dog’s daily life will be looked at. Sometimes small changes can have a very positive impact. We will try to get to the root of the issue and won’t offer “quick fixes”, which can sometimes trigger further unwanted behaviours.

Having trained with the renowned behaviour expert Sheila Harper, Michele has developed gentle but effective methods, which are very successful. You will not be “told off” or made to feel stressed or guilty about problems, rather we will be working together with your dog, to improve life for everyone!

The initial behaviour 1-2-1 session is £75 and will commence after completion, by you, of a thorough information sheet.  Then I will meet you and your dog (preferably at your home) for a 1.5/2 hour session, followed by an emailed report outlining our discussions and a plan to move forward. A follow up 20 min telephone session is included in the price, if required. (up to a month after the session).

Further home sessions (1-2 hours) can be scheduled, (if required) at a cost of £60 each.

It is often a very good idea to combine the behaviour work with  a Zoopharmacognosy session (please see the relevant page for more detail). If you would like to have both therapies, there is a discounted rate available, so instead of £140 for the two sessions, you will pay £120. (Please note that the Zoopharmacognosy takes place here at Bentley Holistic Dogs and includes a session in the canine sensory enrichment garden).
