He will then decide on the amount of time needed, and which locations to use. Most behavioural consultations begin at the clients home, and assessments are done from there (but obviously using outside spaces and parks if required)Accurate 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 steps may be taken to modify your dog’s behaviour.Whether this involves taking the dog out into a public space in order to observe how it reacts with the various obstacles faced therein (confrontation with other animals etc.), or testing reactions to an array of other stimuli, all results are once again intended to aid as precise a diagnosis as possible.Time need and cost will depend on the issue.
