Behaviour Therapy & Training

The relationship between owner and pet is very special and unique. Sometimes this relationship can breakdown when the pet's behaviour conflicts with the owner's expectations. These problems can be resolved with a behaviour therapy programme designed specifically for the individual pet that will help to modify their behaviour and help to restore a harmonious relationship.

Naomi is able to help keep your pet's stress levels to a minimum if you are moving home, introducing a new cat or dog to your home or if there are changes in your family. Naomi can also help plan for your new pet's arrival, with house training and any other questions you may have.
