COMBINED WITH HANDS ON EXPERIENCE ARE ESSENTIAL - Fran Griffin
I have a strong academic background in behaviour science, psychology,and
have been a member of the UK Registry of Canine Behaviourists (UKRCB) for 13 years. I have learned
a great deal from hands on experience both living and working with dogs
for most of my life. I have also taken in rescue dogs who have come into
my life with problems of their own, and have succesfully rehabilitated
them, whilst taking on board what it is like to have lived with a dog
who has various issues.

and fully appreciate the stresses and strains these cause.

a behavioural consultation is £60 for a two hour visit. This is
cheaper than some people are quoting, but you can rest assure that I am
fully qualified as well as having years of hands on practical experience
with working with dogs who have problems. Many people who are charging
a great deal more have no proper qualification, and very little knowledge,
having only taken correspondence courses.
