Behavior Modification

Additional Information

At Companion Animal Wellness we offer behavior modification for cats and dogs.  Behavioral issues of any kind can be overwhelming for any dog or cat owner. Often times, your animals behavioral issues are an indication that they are stressed and anxious. Even if the behavior is mild, the quality of life for the dog, cat or owner may be compromised and has the potential to lead to other behavioral issues. Whatever your issue may be, it's important to address it early.

Some common behavioral challenge areas can include:

  • Aggression 
  • Resource Guarding: Food, Toys
  • Housesoiling 
  • Reactivity 
  • Litterbox issues
  • Destructive behaviors
  • Separation anxiety
  • Obsessive/compulsive behaviors
  • Excessive barking
  • Destructive scratching (cats)
  • Marking
  • Fear
  • Anxieties
  • and more…

Each behavior modification lesson begins with a Behavior Consultation of 2-3 hours. During the consultation Companion Animal Wellness will help you understand the “why” behind your dog or cat's behavior, determine your specific goals and how to reach them, and then provide the steps to get you started on the path back to enjoyable household harmony. Once consultation is complete we will set up a management plan and reinforcement to help guide you and your pet.  While some behavior issues can be addressed and modified in a single meeting, it’s typical to expect a period of ongoing hands-on treatment  to modify the behavior,  Behavior Modification Lessons include 1-2 hour instruction, educational literature, behavioral reports, homework, and phone support and email follow-ups  to support your progress and help keep you on track with your goals.

Please call or email to set up your Behavior Consultation so we can help you achieve your hopes and goals for a more compatible relationship with your dog.
