1. Through on site rehabilitation
2. On going behaviour advice and support once in their new homes.
To be able to do this effectively, requires years of training and experience. We are extremely proud to have our own resident canine behaviourist, Kymm White, who has trained for several years at one of the UK’s leading animal behaviour centres, the Natural Animal Centre. She has experienced first-hand the benefits of formal training in the science of dog behaviour and welfare.
In Kymm’s words, ‘ My Canine Behaviour Qualification gained through the Natural Animal Centre is a comprehensive science-based qualification using only the latest research from the best universities in the world. The course encompasses canine ethology, evolution, domestication, abnormal behaviours, physiology, learning theory, welfare, aggression as well as personal self development and learning how to consult. This enables me to provide detailed behavioural modification programmes for even the most traumatised of dogs. I know how to target the cause of the problem and not to focus on just the superficial symptom. This means I focus on good welfare for the dog throughout their modification. In line with my personal ethics and those of the Natural Animal Centre, I work only using positive reinforcement which is scientifically proven to have a beneficial and accelerated affect on how dogs learn.’
As well as our resident behaviourists at South East Dog Rescue and we are proud to say that a some of our volunteers have also decided to take the plunge and study Canine Behaviour courses with The Natural Animal Centre, in order to give them a better understanding when taking care of our dogs.
