Behaviour Consultations

Don’t give up on your pet! Our animal behaviour coordinator can help you work with your dog’s issues.

Following the completion of our questionnaire our staff will meet with you and your dog for a one-on-one session to discuss and thoroughly assess current issues and identify problem areas; working together in a comfortable, stress free environment towards realistic goals. We will work together as a team to plan a successful rehabilitation program, using proven positive reinforcement methods that will teach you the skills to manage and work with common and complex behaviour problems.

Examples of common & complex behaviour issues:

  • Excessive barking and/or growling
  • Chewing and other destructive behaviours
  • Separation distress
  • Fear of new people/places or things
  • Rough play, nipping, jumping, mouthing
  • Excitability or distress in vehicles
  • Food or Toy guarding
  • Leash reactivity towards people or other animals
  • House training or marking
  • Introducing new pets to children
  • Introducing new pets to existing pets
  • Crate training
  • Recall problems, pulling on leash
  • Any other behaviour that is unwanted

Cosmo

Adopted

We wanted to send an adoption/birthday update on Cosmo (formally Delilah) Cosmo is doing as wonderful as ever. She spends her days tanning in front of the windows or sleeping soundly on any piece of furniture or clothing she can find. She is still a bit weary of the family dog but for the most part they co-exist in peace. She and our other cat Bynx get along better and better everyday, even sharing tanning spots and sharing from the same bowl of food. Cosmo still talks nonstop and follows us wherever we go, she is very curious!
We love Cosmo so much and feel so grateful that no one else adopted her before us.
Thank you as always, for all you do.

Meet. Adopt. Love.
