Balance Behaviour Q&A
What do you love most about your job?
I love to help both people and dogs overcome problems. I like to see dogs overcome issues and succeed! It's always a new challenge as no two dogs are the same.
What inspired you to start your own business?
The sheer lack of competence within the field of canine behaviour - there is an awful lot of poor advice offerred. I also really wanted to keep dogs from being relinquished to rescue wherever possible and to ensure harmony so that the dog can remain within the home. Rescue is where it began for me and this is still at the heart of what I do.
Why should our clients choose you?
I offer a genuinely balanced approach to assessment. The approach is always tailored to both the dog and the family. My advice is based on science, knowledge and experience, but the plan has to be feasible and acheivable, for this reason I never use a rigid blueprint as each dog is an individual, as is each family. I design the plan to fit the dog and circumstances using a holistic approach - there is no one size fits all where canine behaviour is concerned!
I am a member of the CFBA, I tutor and supervise work experience for advanced canine behaviour, tutor canine health and nutrition and dog law qualifications and I rescue and rehome for local rescue charities - have a broad knowledge of all things dog! I love a challenge and am determined to give the client the tools to succeed regardless of complexity.
Balance Behaviour Services
One to one consultations in your home
A full behaviour evaluation for one or multiple dogs taking a full history, functional analysis and behavioural diagnostic in order to advise and demonstrate behaviour modification techniques that are suited to owner and dog. A full written report and follow up advice via telephone and email is included.
Board and Behaviour
Not suited to all! However board and behaviour programmes can certainly help some dogs in some scenarios. A stay amongst balanced dogs in my home can give me the opportunity to thoroughly assess, and begin teaching foundation skills in order to set the dog up for success.
