What Is Behavioral Counseling for a Pet?

Behavioral counseling for pets is a service that is provided by a professional with specialty pet training to help address your pet's specific behavior issues and help them learn better ways to act. If your pet needs behavioral training, we will help you decide the best way to go about treatment to get the results you need for a healthy relationship with your pet. There are three main options for behavioral counseling. Group classes are for very basic training such as socialization and basic commands such as sit. Private classes are for a dog or cat that may have more complex issues and needs one on one time. There we will help diagnose the cause of unwanted behavior and begin to train it out. Day boarding and training is a great way to distract and train certain behaviors out of your pet. It is ideal if your dog is misbehaving because he is lonely while you're at work, since it keeps him distracted. 

The main goal of behavioral counseling is to bring peace between you and your pet. A good pet trainer will do this by addressing the root cause of the unwanted behavior and going from there. If you are feeling frustrated, don't give up on your pet, call us. 

Is This Veterinary Treatment Effective to Modify Extreme Behavior? 

In extreme situations like biting or aggression, behavior counseling can be effective. If we can find out the cause of your pet's anger or fear that leads them to bite, then our trainers may be able to help them heal. If your pets have shown aggression, do not give up on them, but also keep them separated from anyone they may harm for their safety and the safety of others.
