Behavioral Counseling

Just because you love your pet, doesn’t mean you have to love everything he or she does.

Bad pet behavior can do more than just destroy your property and disrupt the peace in your home. It can stand in the way of you developing that all important human-animal bond and make it difficult to embrace your pet as an integral member of the family.

If you’re struggling with bad pet behavior, you’re not alone. The team at Alpine at Noah’s Ark Animal Hospital can help. We offer professional behavioral counseling services to help overcome bad behavior and bring out the balanced, well-behaved family member you know your pet is capable of becoming.

The key to dealing with negative behaviors is uncovering the root cause. Animals act out for a number of reasons, and many times a bad behavior can be merely a symptom of a much bigger problem. Conversely, there are many common illnesses that have symptoms which mimic bad behavior, such as bladder control issues. The first step in helping to overcome your pet’s bad habits is getting to the bottom of what’s causing them in the first place.

Once we’ve ruled out any potential medical cause, and we’ve pinpointed the exact problem we’re dealing with, we can then provide you with the education, tools and support you need to help your pet overcome their behavior problems once and for all. Through a number of proven behavior modification techniques, such as repetition and positive reinforcement, you’ll begin to see real, lasting results.

Some of the behavior issues we can assist with include:

  • House training problems
  • Aggression
  • Destructive behavior
  • Excessive barking
  • Biting
  • Digging
  • Anxiety
  • More…

If you’re struggling with bad pet behavior, don’t waste another moment. Give us a call right away to schedule a behavioral evaluation. We’ll work with you to get to the bottom of why your pet is acting out and develop a real, actionable plan to address and overcome that bad behavior once and for all.
