Dr Kate understands that pet behaviour problems can be stressful! Her knowledgeable, friendly and non-judgemental approach will put your mind at ease. Dr Kate offers both in-home and Skype consultations. Please see below for more information on pricing and inclusions.

***BOOKINGS for in-home consultations ARE CURRENTLY CLOSED***

Due to unprecedented demand, Dr Kate is currently booked out for in home consultations until May/June 2021. Appointments for May/June 2021 will reopen at the end of March.

In Home Behaviour Consults:

In-home behaviour consults take about 90 minutes. Kate sends you a link to complete a behavioural history form for your pet. During the consult, Kate reviews the behavioural history form, observes and assesses your pet’s behaviour and discussing the problem behaviour in detail.

Dr Kate then teaches you easy to use, science-based training and behaviour modification techniques that really work!

A week after the consult you will receive your comprehensive report and behaviour modification program to remind you exactly what to do.  And follow up email support is provided for two months free of charge.

For more information please see the dog, cat, and parrot pages.
