Here at Charismatic Pets, Charis our behaviourist can assist you in finding resolution to a range of behavioural problems in a range of species.
She will work with you and your animal to find the cause of any problems and put in place a behaviour modification programme to strive towards resolving them.
This can be done at our daycare and training centre in our consultation room or at your home. If at your home a mileage fee may occur if outside of Warminster.
Once you have obtained the vet referral, the next step is to fill out the behaviour questionnaire. This can also be downloaded by clicking on the link.
This will give Charis a much greater insight into what the problem is, how it started and how it has developed.
This information is essential in reaching an accurate diagnosis and ensuring that the behaviour modification that you embark upon is the correct methods of treating the problems that you are seeing. Treating incorrectly can result in a worsening of the behaviour and be very detrimental to your pet's welfare.
There are a number of medical disorders that can cause behaviour change in our pets so it is essential that we ensure that these causes are ruled out and/or treated before we treat the behaviour problem. Treating an animal behvaiourally when it has a medical issue will cause the problem to worsen and be very detrimental to the animal's welbeing. Therefore we ask that you contact your vet and make an appointment to have the animal checked over with it in mind that you are seeking behavioural advice.
The vet can then fill out our referral form that will enable the case to be taken on by Charis.
You can download the referral form by clicking the link in the text. Just take this along with you to your appointment at the vets.
Charis has found over the years that the best way to work with owners and their pets to resolve problems is through a series of 1 hour sessions. These are usually a mixture of discussion and practical work. Some owners find one session to be informative enough to set them on the right path to resolution and others like to have future sessions to continue to further their knowledge and understanding and to take up the opportunity to improve the practical applications of the behaviour modification they are working for. We offer various packages or pay as you go options for behaviour to work to allow clients to work with Charis as suits them depending on the level of support they need and their financial situation.
Common problems we work with regularly in our behavioural consulatations are:
Aggression problems, fearful behaviour, phobias, grooming problems, territorial problems, general puppy and/or training problems and separation related issues.
