Behaviour Modification

When your dog’s behaviour causes problems then you may need to address the causes for the behaviour.

Rovers Return can offer a bespoke service to help and support you through the assessment process, giving you the confidence, skills and knowledge to help your dog overcome their behavioural issues. 

Behaviour Assessments 

All of our work involves force-free, reward-based training.  

Rovers Return’s, bespoke, 3 step, behavioural assessment is carried out to address the factors that are affecting the dog’s behaviour, and determine the function of the behaviour for the dog.

An initial call to discuss needs, then you will recieve an assessment form to fill in at home, and then the assessment which can take place online or face to face. 

Once all the information has been assessed a modification plan will be formed and training can begin. 

Initially training at home, away from distractions, this is the best environment for learning. We then  gradually introduce distractions and add triggers that drive the behavouir.

Regular sessions build confidence and the continual support that you will receive is the most effective approach to help you and your dog. 

Some of the problem behaviours we can help with:

  • Adverse reactions towards people.
  • Adverse reactions towards other animals and canines.
  • Excessive Barking
  • Excessive energy Levels
  • Reactivity due to fear and anxiety
  • Noise sensitivities (including firework)
  • Phobias
  • Separation-related behaviour.
  •  Guarding behaviours
 If you are unsure whether your dog’s behaviour will need a behavioural assessment or training please get in contact to discuss your issues.

5 sessions cost is £190

3 sessions cost is £120
