At Animal Behaviour Kent we have a highly qualified team of dog behaviourists with expertise in rehabilitating and training aggressive dogs. Find out more below.
Our team of highly qualified dog behaviourists is led by Daniel Shaw CDBC, who has worked as a dog behaviourist for a number of years, publishing his first book on dog behaviour in 2019. Daniel is a member of the International Association of Animal Behaviour Consultants and has presented webinars on resolving aggression in dogs to an international audience of owners, pet professionals, and veterinarians.
Our dog behaviourists work either within your home or in our specialised consultation venue, Mabledon House and Gardens, to find effective and ethical solutions to aggression problems. We cover a number of locations throughout the South East of England including Kent, Surrey, East Sussex, and South East London. For more information, see the areas we cover section.
What issues do we cover?
Dog aggression can be a result of a number of factors such as fear, frustration, pain, hormonal changes, irritability and much more. This can present in different ways including:
We regularly support dogs displaying these various forms of aggression. Our aim is to work with owners to understand the causes of their dog's aggressive behaviour and find a practical and effective resolution. Our methods are ethical and positive-reinforcement based, meaning ensuring your dog's welfare is central to what we do.
If you want to find out more about us and whether we might be able to help you, you can email us or give us a call. Just visit our contact us page.
