Insurance Claims for Dog Behaviour
Is your dog insured? You may be able to claim my dog behaviour fees via your pet insurance.
Many insurers cover the cost of dog behaviour consultations. In some instances your insurer will pay all of my fees less your excess.
Being a full member to the Canine and Feline Behaviour Association UK enables me to work through your insurer. My standing with the CFBA tells your insurer that I work to a high professional standard that is recognised by your insurer.
Contact your insurance provider in advance of booking a consultation to check the details of cover, and or exceptions within your specific policy type.

Contact me directly, and I can explain the procedure free from obligation. Your insurer will ask you to gain a referral to me from your vet. This can be done via email, phone or letter. Click on the .pdf icon to download a convenient vet referral form that you can download and print for your vet to complete, hold on to this for when I see you as it goes to your insurer, not me.
If the referring vet wishes to remain up to date, a copy of the report will be sent for his/her records. I will help you fill in (and correctly stamp) your paperwork on my visit.
The Canine and Feline Behaviour Association (CFBA) is accepted by Pet Insurance Companies who cover behaviour problems on their policies and meets their criteria for excellence in the field. Nick Jones MA is an accredited Member of the CFBA and as such, your pet insurance policy may assist with costs. Each insurance company will have it's own criteria of what it deems a behaviour problem, which the client can discuss with their insurance company prior to booking an appointment.
Canine behaviour problems are defined by each individual company. Dog training is NOT a part of pet insurance cover.
