Sometimes a pet
can develop a behaviour that is a problem for the owner and makes
owning that pet less enjoyable. The behaviour may actually be normal
for that animal but deemed inappropriate by the owner in those circumstances.
Alternatively the animal may actually be suffering due to the behaviour.
The role of the pet behaviour counsellor is to advise the owners
about how best to deal with these problem behaviours.
behaviour problems may include:
- Aggression towards people or other dogs
- Phobias (thunder, fireworks, guns, traffic
- Barking at home, in the car, or on walks
- Food guarding
- Chasing (livestock, cats, postmen, cyclists
- House soiling and indoor urine marking
- Separation problems
| Cat behaviour
problems may include:
- Spraying in the house
- Indoor urination and defecation
- Scratching carpets and furniture
- Aggression to people
- Aggression in multi-cat households
If you are experiencing difficulties with animals other than dogs
or cats, please contact us as we may be able to offer help or recommend
someone else with specialist knowledge.
