Our Services

We offer a range of services from behaviour consultations to personalised companion animal training as well as puppy classes and even education workshops!

 

BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATION – involves an initial telephone or skype call with you in order to obtain a preliminary history and to discuss your situation in further detail.  After this, we can plan our in-home visit to you where we perform a thorough behaviour assessment to determine ‘what’ and ‘why’.  A personalised treatment and management plan will be formulated for your pet and a copy of our report will also be provided to your regular veterinarian.  We offer clients ongoing support via telephone, skype or email for 4 weeks after the initial consultation – after this time a revisit is recommended.

 

REVISIT – comprises an in-home consultation where we perform a thorough behaviour reassessment as well as a review and modification of the initial treatment and management plan.  We offer ongoing support as outlined above and a copy of our report will also be provided to your regular veterinarian.

 

In the event that medication is prescribed, your pet will require ongoing reassessment on a regular basis.  We strongly recommend that your pet has a follow up blood test every 6 to 12 months, especially where long term medication is indicated.  A script for medication is provided and included in the consultation/revisit fee, however, there is an additional fee for the medication itself and this may need to be sourced from a compounding pharmacist.

 

SHORT consultation – depending on the initial information provided by you on the ‘Book a Consult’ page, we may recommend a 1 hr short consultation based on your specific situation.

 

COMPANION ANIMAL TRAINING – we offer in-home 90 minute sessions that are tailored to both your pet’s specific needs as well as your personal goals.

 

PUPPY & ADULT DOG TRAINING – our CALM APPROACH programs comprise small classes (maximum of 4 puppies/dogs) to help optimize the learning and training experience!

 

VCABS EDUCATION WORKSHOPS – our workshops cover a range of interesting topics such as: environmental enrichment; your pet’s body language; preparing for thunderstorms; training equipment; positive reinforcement, plus many more!

 

VETERINARY SERVICES – we offer livestock/hobby farmers consultation on herd behaviour and management, including herd handling/transport/welfare, and facility design.
