Behaviour Clinic

Behaviour Clinic


Welcome to Animal Behaviour at Lincoln, from this page you can access a range of behaviour related resources. The Animal Behaviour, Cognition and Welfare Research Group carries out internationally recognised research across a wide range of species, pet owners can find out about contributing to some of this research via the Pets Can Do website.

The Animal Behaviour Clinic provides information regarding puppy classes and one-to-one training sessions as well as our referral-only behaviour consultations.

The Clinic is still open and we are offering consultations as well as follow-up by telephone, e-mail, or Teams as appropriate. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic we have had to change the way that we work, and are currently offering consultations remotely.

We will only be able to access paperwork sent in electronically for the time being.

If you are a referring vet please ensure you send a full medical history along with a completed referral form to

If you are a pet owner we are able to offer an initial consultation via Microsoft 365 Teams or other virtual meeting packages. The consultation will involve expansion of the history form submitted, an assessment and our recommendations going forwards. This may be limited to management advice in some cases.

Due to not being able to perform a physical examination (where our veterinary behaviourists may otherwise have done so), in some cases we may ask you to send us additional information, possibly including video footage of your pet (if it is safe to do so). If we feel this is necessary we will discuss the details with you as it is important to ensure safety and welfare of all. Therefore, please do not put yourself or other pets at risk trying to collect footage of problem behaviour.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us via email at
