The Happy Animal Behaviourist Directory lists practising Animal Behaviourists in each of the nine provinces of South Africa.

In addition, the directory provides information that should be useful when selecting a Behaviourist. The role of a Behaviourist; a few good questions to ask; a list of South African organisations representing professional Behaviourists; and a list of local institutions that offer accredited training for Behaviourists.

The final section is for Behaviourists wanting to add or update their directory listing.

Please Note – This directory is provided as a service to those that care for animals. We do not endorse any of the listed Behaviourists but we trust the listing makes it easier to find professional support.


Selecting a Behaviourist

[spoiler title=”Role of a Behaviourist” open=”0″ style=”1″]

Animal Behaviourists aim to help those that care for animals to understand and resolve behavioural problems in their companion animals. Because problem behaviours can be associated with serious physical illness, a Behaviourist will refer you to your family vet to first rule this out or get supportive treatment if appropriate. Behaviourists will generally consult with you at home, or wherever the problem behaviour is manifesting, to get a complete picture of all the factors involved.

Veterinary Behaviourists are veterinarians with further training in behaviour. Veterinary Behaviourists are permitted to prescribe pharmaceutical drugs for behaviour problems should they be required.

So what can you expect from a Behavioural consult?

  • a deeper understanding of your animal’s unique nature and needs
  • greater clarity on the root cause of the problem behaviour
  • useful strategies, tools and techniques to encourage positive feelings, relationships and behaviours
  • creative ideas to enrich the home environment and encourage an active lifestyle
  • a report for your family vet

Some Behaviourists also offer puppy socialisation and dog training classes.

[spoiler title=”Questions to Ask” open=”0″ style=”1″]

Here is a list of useful questions to ask when you contact a Behaviourist:

Do you work to identify the cause of the behavioural challenge rather than simply treating the symptoms alone?

By spending time looking for the cause of the behaviour a Behaviourist is more likely to find real solutions. Addressing behaviours (like barking) without understanding what causes them can cause regression when you least expect it.

Do you teach ‘leader of the pack’ techniques?

Also known as ‘dominance reduction’, this style of training has little scientific validity and can accelerate fear rather than encouraging the growth of a psychologically healthy animal.

Will you only use positive reinforcement?

Positive reinforcement encourages trust and confidence in our animals. Studies have shown it leads to faster learning too. Many Behaviourists routinely practice negative reinforcement by withholding rewards thinking they are using positive reinforcement. However, this often simply increases frustration and fear.

Did your studies include the ethology of the animal?

Ethology is the study of an animal’s behaviour in its natural environment. Only with this understanding can a Behaviourist really know what your animal needs to be happy.

Do you require referral from my family vet?

Some behaviour challenges can have illness or pain at the source that that will need to be treated before behaviour modification can commence. A referral from the vet will help to reduce the chances of missing an illness and see your animal benefiting from an interdisciplinary approach to wellbeing.
