Debbie Bryon
Certificated Clinical Animal Behaviourist

 

 ABTC-CCAB/ATI, RVN, B.Sc. PG.DIP, N.Cert.AnBehav

I have been a veterinary nurse for over 20 years and worked with pets and their people specifically with behaviour issues for almost 10 years. I’m a very open and genuine person and have a true passion for helping animals and people communicate more constructively.

I live in Gloucestershire with my family including Rodney the big-nosed mini bull terrier and Duckie the African Grey Parrot and Frank the slightly crazy cat!

I have been guardian to all sorts of animals from fish to rats to horses all through my life and can honestly say that if you think you’ve made a mess of things and it’s all your fault, I’ll bet I’ve been there! I once (as a child!!) tried to revive one of my pet mice who had been attacked by my cat by putting him into the warm oven. I can tell you know that it didn’t work!

I am a qualified and certificated accredited clinical animal behaviourist, I am an accredited member of the Fellowship of animal behaviour Consultants (FABC) and Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (APBC) and listed as a Certified Animal Behaviourist by the Animal Behaviour and Training Council (ABTC.) I’m also a Registered Veterinary Nurse with the Royal College of Veterinary Surgeons (RCVS)

I only work on referral from your Veterinary Surgeon to ensure I can perform as holistically and thoroughly as possible. This will help me to cover all medical, nutritional, environmental, proprioceptional, and communication issues in great detail for the very best outcome for all.

What you can expect from me

Honesty without fluff, no judgement, and support and recommendations based within the most up to date scientific methodologies and without ever using fear, coercion or pain. My aim is to teach you how to communicate more effectively with your pet whilst allowing them to make better emotional decisions to exist more harmoniously in the complicated human world.

What I expect from you

Honesty and full disclosure of all the history you have with your pet, knowledge is power and the more I know the more I can help! Even if you have used a rolled up newspaper or a spray bottle before as long as I know I can help!

What is an animal behaviourist?

In human terms, I’m like a human psychologist/counsellor and I use all of the information you can provide me to build an easy to follow plan to allow you and your pet to live more peacefully by using up to date scientific methods and learning theory.

We LOVE LOVE LOVE the Dogs Disclosed Dogs Disclosed infographics. 
This one is a biggie! Labels are such a pain! Potentially harmful and a distraction from actual data clinical information. Forget labels like aggressive or dominant and try to describe the behaviour you are seeing! Its much more helpful for veterinary and behaviour professionals!
Rather than my dog was being aggressive,  my dog was barking and lunging towards another dog whilst on the lead. This gives us much more to work with!
