Evaluation/assessment only.  £180

A dog’s personality is formed by a complex interplay between his genetic predispositions, his breed inheritance, his developmental circumstances and his life experiences. 

While behaviour as a whole is a reflection of personality, a dog’s behaviour at any given time is heavily influenced by his emotional state, his instinctive responses, his stress level and the specific environment. 

Thus, any single source of information should be considered a 'piece of the puzzle' The more pieces you have, the more complete the puzzle.

Assessments are only what the assessor finds to be true at the time of evaluation ..therefore information will be primarily gathered from the owner/guardian of the dog 

Assessment / Evaluation £180

Assessments are now only available where the client requests advice only on the extent of the work necessary together with prognosis, without a training program set - third party assessments are no longer carried out.


Detailed Reports 

We no longer provide reports for any legal issues you may have with regard to your dog as the time spent on such situations removes availability to carry out our other obligations.

We need to put aside at least 8 hours of the day for each behaviour consultation.

A good, experienced, up-to-date, private dog trainer will be around £60 - £80 /hour. (Less experienced trainers should charge less.) sessions of 2hrs or more in duration are usually to be expected.

A private session with an experienced and specialist behaviourist should be around £90- £150 /hour. (Prices will vary according to the severity and nature of the behaviours involved.)

You should expect to allow 3hrs for each session required.

For Comparison -A vet/clinical behaviourist will be around £200+

Consultations will be by fixed appointment.

Ask for a quote, and a proposal of time and estimate of work to be carried out.

The more complex the problem, the more their services will cost... & You may need multiple sessions.

If you are advised that you will need further sessions to make progress, most professionals will offer a package price to ensure that you get the best deal..

You may feel that the charges are high for the time that they spend with your dog..

However we will be travelling, preparing evaluations, quoting, spending time messaging or speaking on the phone with you beforehand. After the session many will write up reports, draft up written explanations and notes to cover your session as well as offer you ongoing support..

Some will be working in dangerous situations where time and patience are required..

The time spent with your dog is only a part of the full working day that the professional is hired for.

Sadly due to an increasing number of missed appointments which carry losses to us, we now only take bookings accompanied by payment - unless we can see you sooner, payments must be made within a week of the appointment, so that we can offer the appointment to others should you not proceed.

Rescheduling/transfer of payment will only be possible if the notice is given with more than 2 calendar days prior to the original appointment.

Refunds will not be provided under any circumstances to compensate for preparation time and business loss. 

Due to high demand, we cannot hold an appointment without payment.
