Ireland’s leading dog behaviour expert is available for consultations upon vet referrals.
Complex behaviour problems should not be taken lightly, and should always be addressed by qualified and experienced professionals.
Here in Ireland we only have a small number of certified behaviourists, less than 10, who have been through rigorous assessment by independent recognised bodies (please visit www.abtc.org.uk for more information on what it takes to become a recognised certified dog behaviourist).
Unfortunately we regularly see the detrimental, and occasionally fatal, fallout that occurs when dog owners unknowingly hire underqualified and uncertified psudo-professionals.
When it comes to treating complex behaviour problems such as fear, aggression or abnormal behaviours please seek the help of a certified behaviourist.
Certified Behaviourist Nanci Creedon M.Sc. has a primary degree in Zoology (UCC) masters degree in Animal Behaviour (Newcastle University) and is a published scientist with her research on dog bites published in the Irish Veterinary Journal.
Nanci has appeared as expert witness in the Irish courts and has attended workshops and seminars worldwide to continue her education and to stay on top of the most up to date dog behaviour research and approaches.
**PLEASE NOTE – MANY PET INSURANCE COMPANIES HAVE APPROVED NANCI CREEDON FOR BEHAVIOUR REFERRALS SO PLEASE CHECK WITH YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY TO SEE IF THEY COVER THE COST OF BEHAVIOUR MODIFICATION UNDER VET REFERRAL**
Please download the below referral form. It is critical that a thorough examination is carried out prior to referral for behaviour modification, as we must rule out medical factors contributing to the unwanted behaviour.
