We can help you solve problematic behaviour your dog exhibits because we are canine behaviour therapists. Unfortunately because the profession of behavioural therapist for dogs currently has no legal protection anyone can call themselves a therapist, it is therefore important to consult a real therapist, for instance one that works for DogTalk. Sandra Mur is a kynologisch gedragstherapeut , or canine behaviour therapist.
Dogs used to be work animals, but now are a part of the family and are seen as a full member of the family. We want to help build a good relationship between dog and owner, after all, this makes for companionship, happiness, diversion and can sometimes give people a safe feeling. We expect a lot things from our dogs; anywhere and in any situation we want them to behave socially desirable and not to cause any inconvenience and that is not easy. Good communication between dog and owner is necessary, but sometimes proves to be difficult since they both speak a different language, this sometimes causes friction and / or nuisance.
CANINE BEHAVIOURAL THERAPIST OR DOGWHISPERER
The dog may exhibit behavioural problems i.e. aggression, anxiety, poop or pee in the house, cannot be alone, bark, break things, stereotypic behaviour etc. Expert advice and assistance are needed to change your dog’s behaviour so you can enjoy life together. Read more about the process.
When is behavioural therapy needed?
We often get the question “but when do you need behavioural therapy?” Some dogs may do fine if they train at the dog school, but other dogs may need a little extra help and guidance. (Sometimes it’s actually the owner that needs that.)
The great advantage of the DogTalk behavioural therapy is that we, if it is possible, discuss all the options of the dog school with you. We can create a variety of situations at the dog school without having “strangers” to engage in this. How fun is it if you can later train again when there are other dogs and owners?
