Overall, our pets transition to life in our homes very well. Every pet has their own personality and sometimes certain behaviours can be difficult to live with and can be a manifestation of stress or a medical illness. Some solutions may be very simple and others are more complex. We offer behavioural consultations and solutions in order to help owners and pets co-exist happily.
Some examples of common behavioural problems in dogs are:
- Excessive barking
- Separation anxiety
- Thunderstorm and other phobias
- Crate training
- House soiling/house-training
Some examples of common behavioural problems in cats are:
- Excessive vocalization
- House-soiling/marking behaviours
- Keeping an indoor cat happy
We offer a wide range of services including training suggestions, natural supplements, prescriptions, nutritional solutions and devices to help control or prevent unwanted behaviours.
In many cases, behavioural problems emerge due to excessive energy and the lack of an appropriate outlet. All breeds require the opportunity to stretch their legs and exercise daily in order to give them the mental stimulation they need to live a happy indoor or outdoor life. Some breeds of dogs and cats have more energy and require more mental stimulation and physical exercise and than others. Click here for some suggestions on how to keep your pet amused and enthused!
