Behavioral Counseling

Does your pet’s bad behavior having you pulling your hair out?

If you’re struggling with unwanted pet behavior, you’re most certainly not alone. In fact, this is one of the most common complaints we receive from our clients. It’s also one of the leading reasons why so many pets are relinquished to shelters each year. If you’re feeling as though you’ve reached the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on. Whether it’s something relatively simple or a more serious issue, we’re here to help.

Our professional behavioral counseling services are designed to first help you understand exactly what’s causing your loved one to act out. Animals behave in a negative way for a number of reasons. We’ll start by ruling out any potential medical causes, and then move forward with a more in-depth behavioral analysis.

Looking at the big picture is important because sometimes smaller issues may actually be part of a much larger problem. For example, a pet that chews up the furniture or barks incessantly whenever he or she is left alone may actually have separation anxiety. Only when we address the bigger obstacle at hand can we successfully eliminate the smaller behavior problems. We will work with your pet to determine exactly what we are dealing with before taking the next step.

Once we’ve identified the cause, we can then develop a strategy for managing the situation most effectively. Our goal is to educate you, rather than train your pet, so that you have the tools and strategies you need to move forward. With our guidance, you can overcome your pet’s unwanted behavior and help bring out the balanced, well-behaved companion he or she is capable of becoming.

Some of the behavior issues we can provide assistance with include:

  • House training
  • Jumping
  • Chewing
  • Destructive behavior
  • Biting
  • Excessive barking
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety

You and your pet both deserve to enjoy a stress-free, positive relationship. We can help get you there. Don’t give up. Give us a call!
