Behavioral Counseling for Pets
Are you feeling frustrated because your pet is acting out in negative ways?
Unwanted pet behavior can disrupt the harmony within your home. It can even drive a wedge between you and your four-legged friend, making it difficult to bond. Before you consider giving up, we’d like to extend our assistance. The staff at Stevenson Ranch Veterinary Center has experience with pet behavior problems, from simple to more serious and challenging issues. We’ll get to the bottom of why your companion is acting out. More importantly, we’ll come up with an action plan for getting the situation back under control once and for all.
Pinpointing the Problem
The first step in controlling unwanted behavior is making sure it’s not being caused by an underlying medical issue. Many health conditions have symptoms that can easily be mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, soiling in the house may not actually be a training problem. Rather, it could be caused by an illness. In these cases, treating the condition will typically eliminate the undesirable behavior as well.
Once we’ve given your pet a clean bill of health, the next step is figuring out precisely what type of issue we’re dealing with. Sometimes a larger problem can manifest itself through a number of smaller nuisance behaviors. For example, a dog that becomes destructive or barks incessantly when left alone may actually have separation anxiety. The only way to deal with the smaller issues is to address the main concern.
Some of the behavior problems we can assist with include:
- House Soiling
- Destructive Behavior
- Excessive Barking
Once we’ve identified the problem, we’ll work with you to come up with the best solution. There are a number of ways you can address a behavior issue. Whether it’s through positive reinforcement, rewards or something else, we’ll arm you with the tools and education you need to get real, long-term results.
