I LOVE MY PET AND I DON'T WANT THE BEHAVIOURIST TO THINK MY PET IS 'BAD'. HOW MUCH DETAIL SHOULD I GIVE THE BEHAVIOURIST IN THE QUESTIONNAIRE AND CLINICAL APPOINTMENT?
Your clinical behaviourist will not blame you or your pet for the problem behaviour. But, if your appointment with your clinical animal behaviourist is to be really helpful in resolving your pet's problem, the clinical behaviourist will require as much information as possible to ensure that they come to the correct diagnosis and help you to create an effective treatment plan. This may involve providing video evidence as well as a detailed questionnaire and discussion.
