There may come a time when time-outs and withholding treats don’t do the trick anymore. Our team is here to help you manage your pet’s behaviour before it reaches that point. We’ll teach your furry companion healthier and more manageable ways to communicate their needs during our behavioural counselling sessions. To book an appointment for a behavioural counselling session for your pet, call us at 905-579-4040.
How would my pet benefit from behavioural counselling?
The truth is, behavioural counselling is not only for pets that have been misbehaving. All pets can benefit from learning healthier ways to communicate and express what they feel. In some cases, their behaviour may result from a mental or underlying health issue that our veterinarians would be able to detect and treat. The benefits go both ways. As a pet owner, you will also learn techniques and have tools to better equip you to create a healthier environment.
What are the signs my pet needs behavioural counselling?
Every furry companion is unique in their own way. If you notice changes in your pet’s behaviour or they become harder to manage, they may benefit from professional help. Please reach out to us if you notice your pet displaying any of these symptoms for an extended time.
- Excessive licking or scratching
- Excessive barking or growling
- Separation anxiety (pacing or hiding)
- Aggression towards other people or animals
- Excessive peeing
