We encourage all pet owners to seek advice of any form from suitable qualified practitioners. Knowing who you are receiving advice from is vital since the wrong techniques could potentially make your case even worse. We pride ourselves in making sure we are up to date with the science behind pet behaviour counselling and to ensure we are full members of the recognised associations so that your veterinary surgeon and insurance companies will recognise our credentials.
