As part of our partnership with Joii Pet Care, we are proud to be able to offer our dog policyholders exclusive Separation Anxiety sessions with Joii’s in-house behavioural specialist Natalie Light is an ASAB (The Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour) Accredited Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist, an ABTC (Animal Behaviour and Training Council) Clinical Animal Behaviourist and Animal Training Instructor.
What will the session include?
All dog policyholders are eligible for one free 10-minute assessment with Natalie. This is an initial assessment only so that you can decide if you’d like to book a further 30 minutes to work out a management plan for Separation Anxiety.
The 30 minute session will include:
- An introduction to useful resources
- Tips on how to get started with leaving your dog home alone
- Observation on any videos you can provide
- Advice on environmental changes that may help your dog
- Some simple exercises to get started with
Who might benefit from a session?
You might benefit from a behavioural consultation with Joii if you have a dog that hasn’t yet been left alone or if you are returning to work after spending so much time at home.
Or, if you’ve observed your dog through a pet camera or maybe had neighbours mention that your pooch has been barking or sounds distressed when they’re left alone, a call with Natalie could help provide you with the knowledge needed to ensure you and your dog are working together to correct any problems.
How much is a session?
Following your free 10-minute assessment, a 30-minute session costs £45 for Animal Friends policyholders.
For non-Animal Friends customers, these consultations are usually £95 for an initial consultation, and £50 for subsequent follow up sessions.
How to book your session?
If you’re an Animal Friends customer, simply call a Joii vet who will then book an appointment with Natalie Light for you and your dog. You need to be at home with your dog for the call so that Natalie can observe your canine’s behaviour during your consultation.
