Specialist behaviour referral centre with senior behaviourist, Karen Wild BA(Hons) Dip App Psych, CCAB
Sometimes the relationship with your dog breaks down, and you need expert advice. You are not alone. Our behaviour practice specialises in changing difficult situations that are making you all unhappy, into ones where you can make clear, positive judgments instead. Our aim is to be realistic about causes, options, and improvements. We want you to feel more in control and confident that no matter what decisions lie ahead, you are making the right ones.
“Thank you so much for your invaluable help and advice from all of us. My husband and I can’t tell you how much of a difference two hours with you has made!” (Mr and Mrs S, Peterborough)
A thorough look at your dog’s behaviour as part of your family can bring all sorts of solutions that you may never have considered. Karen’s expert, qualified and experienced viewpoint will give you an understanding as well as kind, practical solutions that, as far as possible, will bring rewarding results.

Q. Is this something that my pet insurance may cover?
A. Yes! Behaviour Consultation fees with an CCAB and/or APBC full member are fully or partly covered by many insurance policies. Please contact your insurer for details.
Q. Why must I seek referral from my Veterinary Surgeon?
A. The APBC recognises that there can be a link between some medical conditions and behavioural symptoms. As a result a strong link is essential between the Veterinary surgeon and the behaviourist.
Q. How quickly will I see results?
A. The program advised may produce some results very quickly, particularly where you are learning new practical handling skills. Often it will take time, effort and commitment from all the family to produce the improved behaviour. Always remember that your dog’s problems may have developed over a long period of time. Following your consultation, further advice and support is available by phone and email as you progress. There is a chance that you may need further training assistance following behaviour consultation which may be booked separately.
