We understand that you may be asking yourself if this service is right for you?
You have come to the right place if:

  • Your regular veterinarian or a trainer has told you that your pet's behavioral problems are outside the scope of his/her care or expertise.
  • Your pet has injured you, another person, or another pet.
  • Your pet has repetitive, destructive, and/or self-injurious behavior.
  • Your pet always seems anxious or afraid.
  • You have considered re-homing or euthanizing your pet based on his or her behavior.
  • Something in your gut tells you that your pet's behavior is outside the norm of a happy, healthy dog or cat.

If you are still uncertain whether or not our practice is right for you and your pet, please contact us.

Treatment of behavior disorders can be complex, a commitment to the pet is essential to increase the likelihood of success.
