WHAT IS A DYNAMIC DOG PRACTITIONER
A Dynamic Dog consultation is very different from most canine behavioural assessments. ALL aspects of both you and your dogs day to day life are taken into consideration from their behaviour, to what they eat, to the way they move, sleep, play and routine.
Working with a sound knowledge of the inner structures and systems of the dog, we understand the impact that emotional and physical health may have on a dogs behaviour. Everything is connected, and that is why we insist on a FULL and DETAILED assessment when working with you & your dog.
What to expect on top of the standard behaviour assessment?
All About your Dog - Deep Dive
This may be carried out in person or on Zoom depending on your location. Lasting approximately 90 mins we take a look at what life is like for you and your dog. Be warned we want to know EVERYTHING which often leads us down previously unexplored territory.
Additional information in visual form - photo's and video's of your dog doing various activities of daily life so we can assess any physical issues.
We then spend 48hrs going over all the data & information given to us in the consult so we can build the full picture of what is going on for your dog.
Veterinary Report & Liaison
We then construct a comprehensive veterinary report with corresponding evidence and liaise with your dogs vet with our findings to ensure that any underlying health issues are diagnosed and supported so that they lesson the impact on your dogs behaviour.
Behaviour Management Plan
This may be a short term to help you micro manage behaviour whilst additional Veterinary support is given or longer term help can be discussed depending on assessment outcomes. Either way we make sure you have full support during the initial Dynamic Dog Assessment.
Why is pain the name of the game?
It's not always a limp or a whine! Pain related behaviour is extremely complex. Dogs don't often show that they are in discomfort in ways we would usually expect, it is often subtle and goes unnoticed for weeks, months and even years!
In a recent study carried out in Lincoln University by Daniel Mills, it was found that approximately 80% of dogs that presented with behavioural issues had some form of undiagnosed pain that was a direct cause or adding to a problematic behaviour.
A Dynamic Dog Practitioner has been taught the skills to confidently spot potential signs of discomfort and relay them to the vet so that you and your dog find relief sooner, whilst simultaneously helping you manage your dogs behaviour.Why wait for your dog to go lame, before you consider they are in pain?
