A note about my policy on aggression cases
Where there is potential risk to owners, family members, members of the public
or other animals, I will
advise you of your legal obligations and make Health and Safety recommendations
before beginning any behavioural modification.
I will not attempt to influence the
course of action you decide upon, be it behavioural modification,
management, re-homing or putting your dog to sleep, but I will
objectively discuss your options with you, and help you to
realistically assess the risk of an attack occurring and its potential severity
and weigh this risk against the
likelihood of a positive response to treatment in your dog's case.
of a positive result is poor, it may be possible, depending on your
circumstances, to manage the situation safely.
I will discuss this option with you so that you can make an informed decision.
Everybody's circumstances are different, and only you can decide on
the right course of action for you, your dog and your family. Whatever your decision I will treat it with respect and confidentiality.
