Dog Behaviour Consultations

Our Dog Behaviour Consultations are an opportunity for you the owner/potential owner to learn how to achieve a calm and balanced life with your dog and iron out any issues that may be driving you mad!

If you feel like your dog doesn’t listen to a word you say then chances are they don’t respect or trust you as their leader, which means they are not the dog you want them to be at the moment.  Dog Trouble can change that and show you how to own a dog that you love spending time with!

We pride ourselves in rehabilitating dogs with extreme behaviour issues where other professionals have not been successful.  So whatever issues your dog has we can help!

Read more about our consultation options below. To book, please contact us today! *

*NOTE: Phone/Video Consultations now available. Call 0118 979 1214 or email for more information.

Please note that we reserve the right to charge part/full payment for bookings that are cancelled at short notice. We always apply fairness and discretion on these occasions wherever possible. No provisional bookings can be accepted.

We spend time to observe, understand and identify what is motivating your dog to behave a certain way and then go about teaching you the skills and daily routine to get you and your dogs life back on track!

  • Aggression towards humans/other dogs

Your dog will then be assessed with the help of the Dog Trouble Pack and a rehabilitation plan will then be suggested including the cost involved.

Included: You will be provided with:

  • An understanding of how your dog sees the world
  • What your dog really needs in order to live a balanced life
  • Practical guidance specific to your dog’s behaviour issues that will allow you to see changes in your dog’s behaviour immediately

For people who are thinking about adopting a dog/puppy and are seeking some general guidance before they start the process.


Did you know that the estimated lifetime cost of owning a dog is now somewhere in the region of £18,000? Dogs need a lot of your time too, maybe as much as 1000+ hours every year, so before you get one, it’s definitely worth spending a little time and money finding out just what’s involved. After all, a dog will be a part of your family and your life for maybe 7 to 17 years and it’s really not going to be an option to change your mind once you have made the commitment – a dog is for life!

Included: You will be provided with:

  • Guidance on selecting the right dog for you, your family and your lifestyle
  • A basic understanding of the key principles of dog psychology and behaviour, including how to avoid the mistakes so many new owners make
  • Hands on experience walking, feeding and grooming
  • Adoption options in the local area*
  • Guidance on the basic provisions that you will need including food, bedding, toys, lead etc

* If required, a visit to a local rescue centre can be arranged to support potential owners in choosing the right personality and breed of dog to suit their needs.
