local dog behaviour support service in Abergavenny

Dedicated to helping you with personal support

You need someone with the right academic qualifications, and the necessary practical skills, as well as someone who understands what it’s like living with a dog with behaviour challenges.

I am a qualified and Animal Behaviour and Training Council registered Clinical Animal Behaviourist who works on veterinary referral helping dogs and their owners resolve behaviour problems.

I also have my own personal experience of living with a very anxious, reactive and at times aggressive dog.

I’ve been there! I understand how isolating and worrying it can be.

My goal with a behaviour case is to guide you through the process of understanding your dog’s behaviour, identifying the root cause/s and underlying emotional motivation, and then supporting you in addressing the problem/s.

The key to effective behaviour change is in addressing the dog’s emotional state.

If your dog is being reactive or aggressive because they are scared or frustrated, no amount of training will ‘fix’ the problem unless you work on the fear or frustration first.

I then support you through the process of reducing or eliminating those root causes, addressing the underlying emotional state, and coach you through any necessary management, behaviour modifcation and retraining, and help you get your dog back on track.

My job is to support you as well as your dog and I promise to do this with empathy and compassion.

Behaviour change takes time, patience and commitment. Beware of so-called trainers or behaviourists who promise quick fixes!

All behaviour cases are done on veterinary referral only.

You may be able to claim on your pet insurance for the cost of the behaviour consultation/treatment.

You will need to check with your insurers if you are covered.

A remarkable difference

“Working with Lucy from Daniels Dogs has been priceless in understanding and working to help my extremely reactive 2 year old Black Lab cross.

Understandably it will take time and consistency to keep building on what we have learnt, but I saw a remarkable difference in his overall calmness in the first 2 – 3 weeks.

A much more relaxed and confident dog was beginning to emerge, and I felt a lot more sure about his reactive behaviour and Lucy helped me have a much better understanding of how to support him correctly and understand what was going on for him.

Thank you Lucy!”

Your fully comprehensive package of behaviour support includes:

First steps towards support

Initial information gathering, from both you and your vet (pre-consultation questionnaire, video footage, vet referral form and vet history), so that I have a full history on your dog and the presenting problems

Consultation and assessment

An online assessment, history taking and consultation session to get a full understanding of all the issues, and start to plan with you the way forward (approx 2 hours).

The consultation can take place in your own home if you are within my local travel area (see footer below for areas covered).

Consultations are done online for those outside of my local area, or for dogs who are fearful of or aggressive towards unfamiliar people, in which case this part will be done virtually as well. I cover all areas of the UK for online consultations.

Report and support plan

An in depth behaviour report and support plan with the immediate recommendations for management, support and treatment. Includes step-by-step instructions and video tutorials to support you every step of the way.

Initial Follow up

At least one follow up session is usually included, either in person or online, usually around four weeks later to assess progress and advise on the next steps, and coach through any behaviour modification or training necessary.

Ongoing support

Full direct email support for three months. I ask you to send me weekly updates, which I use to track and review your progress, amend or progress the support plan as necessary, and answer any of your queries.

Outcomes are greatly improved when clients commit to these regular updates and reviews.

Final review

At the end of the three months.

Veterinary liason

Full liaison with your veterinary surgeon, including a separate report (it is essential that vets and behaviourists work closely together).

Paperwork support

Completion of any necessary relevant insurance claim paperwork.

Investment: £695
