Behavioural Counselling for Pets

Even if your pet does not have any behaviour issues, behavioural counselling can be beneficial for them. With puppies for example, we can prevent any problems from developing when they reach adulthood. If your pet, however, is displaying aggressive, nervous or problematic behaviour, please do not hesitate to reach out to us. Our team will provide you with a step-by-step plan to alter your pet’s behaviour so you can fully enjoy their company. Call us at 705.742.4243 to schedule your appointment and to find out about our service rates.

How will I know if my pet needs behavioural counselling?

If your pet’s actions are putting themselves, or other animals/people in harm’s way, then it may be time to give our team a call. Another indicator is if their habits are negatively disrupting your daily routine (e.g. your sleeping, eating and work patterns).

How can behaviour counselling help my pet?

With our counselling program, we can diagnose any underlying health conditions that may be causing your furry friend’s unwanted behaviours. Then, we can assign techniques and treatments specifically catered to their unique case.

What happens at the initial pet counselling meeting?

To start things off, we will ask you questions about your pet and the behaviours that they are displaying. Your pet may also be observed and tested on how they react in different types of situations. Then, at the end of the initial consultation, you will be given a personalized plan of how to start modifying your pet’s behaviour. Follow-up appointments may also be scheduled so that we can track your pet’s progress and modify the plan as needed.
