Behaviour Consultations

Both Erica and Carri are Full Members of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors and serve on their committee.
The APBC is a network of specialist counsellors to whom veterinarians can confidently refer clients. Members of the APBC have to have the highest professional standards, knowledge and expertise, and undergo a rigorous selection procedure.

All behaviour problems are seen on veterinary referral only and close contact is maintained with your Veterinary Surgeon. Consultations last approximately two hours and are usually in your home.
Most pet insurance companies will cover our fees – please check with your own policy.


Dog and Puppy Training

Training classes
for pet dogs are held at Melrose Hall, Hoylake. We aim to teach owners and dogs to have a better understanding of each other, to avoid problems and to teach response to basic commands. The Good Puppy Course and The Good Dog Course are unique to us and we use reward-based methods.. These classes are based on the theory that prevention is not only better than cure, it is more fun as well.

We can also provide private one-to-one lessons and rehabilitation training.

Erica is a member of the Association of Pet Dog Trainers and Carri is affiliated to the British Institute of Professional Dog Trainers having obtained a certificate in Basic Instructional Techniques.
