**Due to the Covid restrictions and in the interest of yours’ and our health and to minimise the time that we are with you in person the initial session which includes, history taking and immediate advice will be completed in part or in full on Zoom or similar where possible**

At times we can find our dog's behaviour puzzling or troublesome, this can have a huge impact on our lives, the lives of the family and even society as a whole.  A behavioural consultation will help you to understand your dog's behaviour and provide you with the information and practical skills to modify the undesirable behaviour. (See below for a list of common behaviour problems)

Depending on the issue, a Veterinary referral may be required prior to starting. This is to ensure that medical factors that could be affecting the problem are known and can be treated appropriately. It may be the case that the problem does not have a behavioural component and is entirely caused by medical reasons and therefore can be treated by your vet. We will happily liaise directly with your Vet to ensure they are kept informed and, where necessary, are part of the behaviour treatment and modification process.
 
Your behaviour consult includes:
  • Up to 30 minutes pre-visit via Zoom where required, for example, immediate safety advice (if you are not sure, this can be purchased separately and the cost taken off the price of the full consult if you decide to go-ahead) 
  • Up to 2 hours in person or remotely with Nick, no additional travel costs, if within 30 miles of Winslow, Buckinghamshire. For a list of Nick's qualifcations, certifications and courses attended, click HERE
  • During the consult I will gather further information and behavioural history, answer any questions you may have regarding the problem behaviour and demonstrate your dog's individual behaviour change plan.
  • A copy of your dog's behaviour change plan for you to follow after the consult.
  • Where required, a written overview of the behaviour change plan sent directly to your for your vet.
  • ​Liaison with your vet where required.
  • Any additional handouts, supplied during or after the consultation and advice for any equipment required.
  • Receipt for insurance claims and/or assist completion of insurance claim form, if applicable
  • Up to 30 minutes of follow-up support.
As an accredited behaviourist, the techniques Nick will use to change your dog's behaviour are based on a scientific understanding of animal behaviour while utilising positive reinforcement based training methods. Changing a dog's behaviour will take time, but we will work together to find the most practical way to fit this into your life and achieve the best possible outcome.

Nick will only work with a small number of clients at a time to ensure we can provide you with an excellent service. He is proud to be recognised for achieving positive outcomes for both pet and owner.

Too far away or no professional trainers nearby? Many behaviour problems can be worked on remotely using modern technology and so we are able to work with clients and accept referrals from veterinary practices nationwide. 

Common behaviour problems include:

House soiling and indoor urine marking
Aggression towards dogs and/or people
Rehabilitation of rescue dogs
Handling problems when being groomed or during veterinary examination
General anxiety
Barking at home, on walks or in the car
Food or object guarding

I cannot thank Nick Honor enough, we were in despair over our dog. Nick was recommended to me from a client of his who could not praise him enough, I took this advice and reached out to him for help. I can only say he is a true professional, his knowledge on everything dogs is beyond 100%, he went over and above to help us through our crisis in a manner that not only was a life changer, but in a way that gave us real confidence in ourselves. The help and advice he gave us was not just his general knowledge, it was advice tailor made for our dog issues. I would advise anyone I could if they ever needed expert help with any dog issues big or small to contact him without any hesitation. Carol

We’ve been working really hard with Arnie and I wanted to update you on how well he is doing. We are now walking to the park - alongside a very busy and noisy road. Not so long ago this would have almost been an impossible walk to us - Arnie would have been barking at the cars and pulling towards them on his lead. Thanks for your tips and advice, it’s certainly paying off!

I had a 1 -1 one hour advice session over Zoom, regarding my concerns of reactiveness with my Puppy. Nick was very reassuring, had such a comprehensive knowledge of what would maybe work along with what I'd been doing or would maybe work better using something another way. Through Zoom he was able to see my dog in his own environment. Nick also gave advice on things we could do as an ongoing addition to the training we are already doing but not to blind the dog with so much traing commands at once and a few10 minute sessions through the day so not to confuse our pup, even if he was willing to learn, time and patience was the essence. So far so good when he's being walked, he walks to heel, when he sees one of his dog friends his 50 foot lead is extended with recall improving every time. We also hold him back to heel for a few minutes and chat to owner so giving our pup a chance to observe this person that's talking and laughing, and five days later pup has gone up to the owner and had a sniff around AND taken a treat from him. Then run off behind his dad again. But its progress in the right direction. Thanks again Nick for your time and the valued information you gave us, so we can work on our pup to turn his reactive behaviour around and show him that these funny talking beings with two legs are actually good people and he can trust in them too. If we were to need to, we would contact Nick for his services in the first instance because he is so good at what he does.

Had an online session with Nick due to the Covid 19 situation. Very easy to set up the video call and worked really well. Nick offered excellent advice to our particular problem, all achievable with some work on our part. Don't hesitate to take advantage of the online consultation especially during these strange times, they work ! Thanks Nick !

I work at a Veterinary Surgery and we often recommend Nick to our clients who have dogs with behavioural issues. So when I was fostering a highly fearful Romanian street dog, who was too scared to leave the house and who hated visitors and my husband (!), I contacted Nick for help. Over the phone Nick was able to offer me immediate solutions to help with her fear and aggression towards my husband. Later on we had a 1-1 session at my house, where after assessment and a long discussion he provided me with a plan of how to move forward in preparation for her to move on to her forever home.I am pleased to say the transition went well and her new owners have implemented many of Nicks suggestions, meaning she now lives in a house with two dogs and two cats, is able to go for walks and will accept strokes and treats from strangers!I can't thank Nick enough for helping a fearful aggressive rescue dog, whose life I believe was at risk, to go on to be living a happy and relatively normal life.

We have been and continue to be so grateful for Nick’s advice on how to cope with Benji’s reactive behaviour. He has helped us enormously with ways to deal with difficulties when out walking, and is still doing so: he has supported us through the difficult days and has helped us to appreciate the days when things are going well. We would not have managed without his help.

My little dog Taffy and I are very grateful to Nick for the training help he gave us this summer. He understood our problems immediately and gave me strategies to tackle her areas of difficult behaviour. Taffy's obedience is much improved and we can enjoy life with our family, which includes small children, much more.
