Let Us Help You and Your Pet Achieve Harmony at Home With Expert Behavioural Advice

Whether you’re having trouble training your pup or your adult pet has developed new behavioural issues, we work together with you and your pet to help identify the real reasons behind the behaviour. Many times we need to identify if this is a true behaviour problem (eg separation anxiety)or a problem behaviour (eg clawing furniture) Many times inappropriate behaviour can be linked to an underlying health problem. For some, there is true anxiety causing their annoying behaviour. Book an appointment to start the process of uncovering the solution.

You Love Your Pet, but Their Behaviour Has Started to Impact Your Life

Undesirable behaviours like clawing or gnawing the furniture, making messes on the floors, or barking incessantly can create a frustrating home environment. Maybe you’ve tried every tip and trick you can find on the internet or from pet experts you found on social media, but you still haven’t been able to stop the behaviour. And after what feels like endless attempts to correct your pet’s behaviour, it’s normal to start feeling like the situation is hopeless.

Unexpected Changes or Increased Poor Behaviour Can Leave You Unsure About What to Do Next

Behavioural problems don’t only impact your home environment, they can also start to impact your pet’s overall health and well-being. You might be noticing weight loss or gain, digestive issues, skin irritation, or even hair loss. Maybe you’re worried because your pet has regressed in their training and it seems like they aren’t able to learn like they once could.

The need for training and behaviour management don’t stop as your pet ages. Even your adult fully-training pet can develop behavioural challenges. When you work with us to solve your pet’s behaviour problems, we will ensure you’re fully equipped to be part of the solution now and in the future.

There Are Many Reasons For Your Pet’s Behavioural Problems

There are countless reasons why your pet has developed poor behaviours. Behaviour is often the symptom of an underlying (and treatable) problem. The good news is, that means there are many solutions available. Whether your pet needs medication to help them manage anxiety, medical treatments for unseen injuries, or professional behavioural intervention, our team is here to support you.

When It Comes to Your Pet’s Health- Knowledge Is Power

The first step in providing a solution is diagnosing the problem. We determine if the behaviour stems from undesirable (but normal) behavioural problems or whether there is something else causing the behaviour (like anxiety, fears, or a medical issue). Once we know the root cause of the problem we can start to work with you, as the owner, to become part of the solution.

We help you to understand your pet’s body language and identify what they need. Often the best thing you can do is offer your pet a supportive environment to help them start to change their behaviour. We want you to feel empowered during this process so you feel more in control with better understanding and knowledge.

Together We Can Help You Navigate Your Pet’s Behavioural Problems

When your pet’s behaviour starts to become a problem it’s normal to blame yourself for not being able to control your pet (especially in public). But poor behaviour is not something to be ashamed of, it’s most likely an indicator that something else is going on. We can work together to help uncover what’s going on and find a solution you’re comfortable with.
