BEHAVIOUR CONSULTATIONS IN OWN HOME
€175 up to 2 hours
Touch sensitivity /touch aversion
Pica / eating non-food items
What to expect:
These consults can last up to 2 hours. You must fill out a behaviour form before the appointment. The appointments are held in your own home as it is important to see your dog in their own environment, where they feel safest. The appointment is in two parts. Part one will be unpacking the reasons you reached out, taking a deep dive into your dog’s behaviour and their environment. We will seek to understand what is driving your dog’s behaviours that are causing you concern. The second part of the consultation will be about putting in place some management strategies to reduce behaviour output using kind and gentle methods. A low maintenance plan will be put in place to support you and your dog. Further investigation may be required and can be employed later should you wish to go forward with a more in-depth analysis (upon recommendation).
GOLD STANDARD SPECIALISED IN-DEPTH ANALYSIS
(this is in addition to the initial consultation)
What to expect:
This service is to analysis your dog’s gait, conformation, coat patterns and potential discomfort that might be impacting on your dog’s behaviour.
The purpose of gait analysis is to detect any abnormalities in their confirmation and locomotion and to assess if their activities of daily living, (ADL’s) affected as a result of something underlying.
This process can take up 30 hours of data collection, observations, slow motion in-depth video analysis along with a report that gets submitted to the attending vet or vet referral.
Why do a gait analysis?
Gait analysis is used to identify pain, inefficiencies or movement abnormalities. The abnormalities can occur from birth defects, degenerative conditions or injuries. These abnormalities are virtually impossible to observe in a veterinary setting and under veterinary exam chronic pain is also usually undetectable in such environments due to stress hormones which can mask a pain response in a medical exam.
The average veterinary consult is about 10 minutes long. It’s impossible to obtain the information needed for a thorough analysis. 100% of my gait analyses have resulted in a formal veterinary diagnosis of an underlying health condition that was affecting the dog’s behaviour. With the collaborative approach of a good veterinary team and skilled analysis, together we can support families and dogs that otherwise could live their entire life in undiagnosed pain or worse end up euthanised for a behaviour that resulted from a pain condition that was treatable. Having a full report with photographic and video evidence of your dog’s condition, it enables you and your vet to look back over time to see if your dog’s range of movement or coat pattern worsen over time or lessen with the right treatment. It’s an investment you will have for the whole of your dog’s life and you will also be trained in how to spot discomfort in your dog through their body language and movement
What you get:
A full behaviour reports.
A medically literate gait analysis report that can be used as a complimentary diagnostic tool for your vet.
A video with a full range of movement in slow motion illustrating the areas of potential concern.
Supporting documents and photo evidence to enable a more concise investigation by your vet.
Support in choosing a vet and communicating the findings in the form of attending a vet visit with you or speaking to your vet over the phone before and after investigations.
A video of how to spot signs of discomfort in your dog and a ‘how to’ guide on collecting data should you be an international client.
At One with Nature
Enrichment isn't always what we think it is. Learn to understand your dog's body language in a natural setting to see what your dog's true nature is and how we can build curiosity and engagement while still giving your dog the freedom and agency he or she needs to fully express their natural behaviours pertinent to their breed and character. In these sessions you will learn to present with your dog, letting go of expectations and control and witness the pure magic that happens in real time.
