Professional, Experienced, and Qualified Animal Behaviourist Covering all of Shropshire and Surrounding Areas!
I work with Dogs and Cats.
My specialty areas are Aggression and Anxiety.
Having worked with animals all my life, I have spent a long time studying their behaviour and how to improve the bond between owner and pet. To help improve my knowledge, I have completed several stages of education. I gained a Master's in Clinical Animal Behaviour at the leading university in Animal Behaviour, the University of Lincoln and I am now embarking on doing a PhD with the university.
I work as a canine and feline behaviourist and also a Canine Behaviour Lecturer at University Centre Reaseheath where I hope to teach the next budding behaviourists!
I am based in Oswestry, but cover Wrexham, Pant, Llanymenach, Chester, Telford, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, and some of Mid and North Wales via in Person Consultations. We also cover the rest of the UK via virtual Teams meetings.
REBECCA'S QUALIFICATIONS AND EXPERIENCES
CANDIDATE CLINICAL ANIMAL BEHAVIOURIST (CAB) MEMBER OF THE FELLOWSHIP OF ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR CLINICIANS (FABC)
II am a Candidate Member of the FABC, FAB Clinicians believe that clinical animal behaviourists should be highly qualified, highly experienced and work to the highest ethical standards, following up-to-date scientific techniques. This means all of our Certificated Members are independently accredited in each of the species they primarily work with, but they may be preparing for accreditation in other species. Clinical cases are only ever taken on veterinary referral. In the UK we conform to the regulatory standards set by the umbrella body, the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC) and the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS). I am currently working towards full Certified membership.

The APBC have stated: "Provisional Members have demonstrated that they have the appropriate level of Knowledge and Understanding for the professional role of Clinical Animal Behaviourist (CAB). They are now gaining the practical experience necessary to be assessed as a CAB and therefore become a Full Member of the APBC.
