How can my dog/cat benefit from behaviour counselling?

If your pet’s actions are putting themselves, or other animals and people in harm’s way, then it may be time to give our team a call. Signing your pet up for behaviour counselling can also be a good idea even if they have not yet developed any issues. For example, by bringing in your puppy or kitten, our techniques can help them develop healthy habits and socialization skills well into adulthood. Counselling can help your pet by diagnosing any underlying health conditions that may be causing their unwanted behaviours, and by assigning the techniques and treatments that will best suit their needs.

What happens at the initial pet counselling meeting?

At the first meeting, you will have a chance to explain the unwanted actions and habits that you see in your pet. We will also observe your pet and test how they act in different types of situations. At the end of the initial consultation, you will be given a personalized plan of how to start modifying your pet’s behaviour.

Will my pet insurance policy cover the cost of dog behaviour counselling?

This will depend on your insurance company’s policy. It’s best to contact your provider so you can have a detailed summary of their coverage on behavioural counselling and other treatments.
