Problem Assessment and Intervention

Minor problems are usually able to be managed in the context of the NCL Programme. However if you have a persistent or serious problem that requires expert intervention we will do everything that we can to schedule you in but it is subject to time-availability. All such problem intervention will require in the first instance a Problem Assessment Session.

A Problem Assessment Session is an important part of the process that is required to determine the nature of the problem and level of intervention required. At times behavioural problems may stem from physical causes. In such cases a check-up with your local vet may also be requested.

**Off location Problem Intervention may be recommended as a result of the Assessment Session indicating that remedial work cannot be undertaken effectively in the dog’s home environment. The reasons for this include:

  • Inappropriate environment
  • Excessive travel and accommodation costs
  • Amount of time needed

As the client you will be fully advised regarding the best options for you and your dog before you commit to a Problem Intervention Re-Training Programme.
