How much?

Our initial consultation standard fee is £420 incl VAT. Typically, consultations are 2-3 hours in length.

From the 1st January 2017, our initial consultation discounted fee for dogs for teaching cases is a fixed cost of £265 incl VAT, for the same service as an initial standard consultation. Consultations are typically 2-3 hours in length.

As we are a teaching institution, a discount is offered for any case where you choose to give us consent to use the material in teaching. This usually includes video recording of the consultation and remote video viewing by students, all of which are studying related courses and have signed confidentiality agreements. We ask you to indicate which service you would like on your behavioural history form.

If your pet is insured check if they are covered for behavioural problems. Although we cannot claim directly from the insurance company, we are happy to complete the necessary paperwork to enable you to claim the money back on your insurance. In all cases where further medical tests or medication are required these will be arranged and charged through the referring veterinary surgeon.

Telephone and email follow up are included in the cost of the initial consultation for a period of 3 months after the date of this consultation. If a follow up consultation or 1-2-1 session are required, either within or outside of this 3 month period, these are charged additionally to the initial consultation fee.

What next?

Send us a completed canine behavioural history form and a veterinary referral form completed and signed by your vet (electronic signatures cannot be accepted). Once received, we will be in touch to book you in. Consultations take place Monday to Friday throughout the year.

We usually ask you to bring all your pets and all members of the family to the consultation if possible. Please allow several hours for your visit as consultations are usually 2-3 hours in length.

In addition, if you have any video footage of your pet's behaviour, please email the footage to us or bring the footage with you to the behaviour consultation. If you do not feel it is safe to video tape your pet's behaviour, please do not attempt to make a video.
