We are able to continue operating under current coronavirus restrictions. We are following government guidelines and have stringent safety measures in place. This does mean there are some changes to the way we work, which we can take you through once you have got in touch and discuss the type of service best suited to you.
A dog behaviourist focuses on working with dogs experiencing specific behavioural problems such as stress, anxiety, aggression, or other abnormal behaviours. A behaviourist will work to understand the root cause of those behaviours, and consider a variety of different behaviour modification programs, and environmental changes that cat be put in place to help resolve the issues the dog is facing.
Dog trainers generally focus more on teaching a happy healthy dog something new. This might be working on general skills such as lying down, recall or walking to heel. Whereas a dog behaviourist is more focused on treating dogs with serious behavioural problems such as anxiety, aggression, or compulsive and pathological behaviours. At Animal Behaviour Kent, we work as both dog behaviourists and trainers, so can help with a wide variety of issues.
Cat behaviourists are trained to treat cats experiencing specific behavioural problems including aggression, anxiety, litter tray problems, and many more. These issues can sometimes be resolved with some basic training, however more often they stem from an underlying anxiety faced by the cat, so require some higher level behaviour modification and environmental management.
We provide dog behaviour consulting throughout the whole of Kent, and some areas in south east London such as Orpington, Bexleyheath, Sidcup, Dartford, Woolwich, Eltham, Chislehurst, Bexley, Catford, Hither Green, Greenwich, Thamesmead, and Greenhithe. If you are unsure, please just get in touch. Our video consultation service also allows us to cover clients all over the UK.
For all animals, we use ethical and scientific methods from the most up to date animal science. Our behaviour modification and training techniques are positive reinforcement based, and prioritise the welfare of the animal.
