Services


As a certified companion animal behaviour counsellor I work together with veterinarians and other animal care professionals to assist pet owners in overcoming behaviour issues with their dogs and cats.


I also assist with specific needs such as guiding owners in educating puppies and kittens, supporting owners with aging pets, introducing an adopted cat/dog to its new home or helping owners and pets to cope with a diagnosed medical condition (on veterinary referral only), always ensuring good welfare for all. 


Write me a short mail describing the matter you are concerned about or need help with and I will do my best to get back to you as soon as I can.

APPOINTMENTS & CONDITIONS


Appointments can be made by mail, by phone or by filling out the online form at the bottom of the 'Contact' page on this web site. All sessions are conducted on appointment and individual basis (in multi-pet households several pets may be concerned).


The first session lasts about 2 hours and preferably takes place in the living environment of the animal.

This session costs 70 eur (incl. VAT) and includes a treatment plan proposal which will be sent to you by mail within a week of the session. Based on the outcome of the consultation and the proposed treatment plan we decide together how to proceed.


Consecutive sessions of 60-90 minutes cost 50 eur (incl.VAT). This includes follow up by mail often accompanied with handouts and helpful sources. These sessions can be held in your home, in my premises, in a vet's practice or in another suitable location. Skype sessions are also possible in certain cases.



Practical matters

I do home visits all over Belgium.

A standard kilometer compensation of 0,50 eur/km will be applied outside of the Brussels-region.


Payment can be made directly after the session in cash or by bank transfer within a week of the session.


I may ask for a vet-check if I suspect a medical condition or pain influencing the behaviour of your pet.


A disclaimer document may be necessary for certain high-risk cases.
