Accurate psychological diagnosis of your dogs behaviour can be very difficult to achieve. It is for this reason,  that the consultation process usually requires that owners submit a background profile, so that we may gain a more complete picture of your dog’s circumstances. Vets may forward a referral form via the cfba website. The dogs clinical history is also useful to look at the entire picture.

By doing this, the goal is to pinpoint your pet’s condition as accurately as possible so the correct preventative steps may be taken.

Whether this involves taking the dog out into a public space in order to observe how it reacts with the various psychological obstacles faced therein (confrontation with other animals etc.), or testing reactions to an array of noise samples, all results are once again intended to aid as precise a diagnosis as possible.

Standard procedure for closing a consultation case typically involves a 2 to 3 hour home visit,then a submission of a full report from Damian disclosing his diagnosis, as well as a detailed programme of procedures to be applied by owners from that point forward.

We encourage that close contact is maintained during the period immediately after consultation so that all progress may be monitored. Phone support is followed up as frequently as necessary.
