Dog Behaviourists - London


Having a dog with a behaviour problem does not mean you are a bad owner.  You might have taken on a rescue dog that did not have the best start in life. Your dog, through no fault of your own, may have had an unfortunate experience in the past that has affected his behaviour, or you may have unwittingly allowed a bad habit to develop.  Whatever the reason, you are only a bad owner if you do not address the problem. 

A good dog behaviourist should have recognised academic qualifications as well as good practical knowledge and experience of working with different dog breeds.  The best way to find a suitable behaviourist is through your vet although, be wary, as some so called ‘behaviourists’ pay the vets for giving them the referral! The Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBT), the Association of Pet Dog Trainers (APDT) and the Tteam UK are all reputable organisations that can and will point you in the right direction.

The issues that behaviourists can help you with are dog aggression towards people, other dogs or animals, antisocial habits and inappropriate behaviour such as excessive barking or toiletry problems, as well as separation anxiety, phobias and stereotypies (habits that are brought about through stress such as self mutilation and tail chasing). 

In this present climate, when so much emphasis is put on ‘dangerous dogs’ and antisocial behaviour, it is every dog owner’s duty to make sure that their dog is well-behaved, is always under control and is socially acceptable.
