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

Adopted 2017

We changed Chloe’s name to River! She responded to it from the moment we’ve called her that and her recall is coming along so well! It helps that she is very food motivated. She’s learned to shake both paws and give a high 10, spin, sit, wait, and lay down. Her favourite thing to do is run, and man is she fast! Her second favourite thing to do is play with her sister Ellie Mae! They tucker each other out every day! On walks, Ellie’s bloodhound nose points out all the best smells and River always wants to sniff it too. We think she is very happy here in her new home she certainly looks it! Thanks so much for helping us add River to our family!

Meet. Adopt. Love.
