Dog Behavioural Counseling

As dogs become larger parts of our lives, their behaviour needs to fit in well with our families. Sometimes, we get dogs that are poorly behaved, have aggression issues, are nervous or overly scared of new noises, objects and people, or are just difficult to train. We are here to help you with your dog’s little quirks to make everyone in your household happy and healthy.

What happens at the consultation?

During our behaviour consultation, we will discuss and review all of your pet’s unwanted behaviours. A full physical exam will be performed to help rule out any medical reasons, as to why your pet is behaving the way it is. Afterwards, we will discuss training tips and steps to start reconditioning your pet to fit in with your family. All training methods will be based on positive reinforcement. During the consultation, we will also discuss canine mental health and possible conditions that may require medication to complement the training to help them improve their behaviour.

Will my pet insurance policy cover the cost of consultation?


Most pet insurance policies do cover behaviour consultations. Please contact your pet insurance provider to determine the details of your coverage.

What to expect after the consultation?

After the consultation, you will be given training exercises to do at home with your dog each day. Behaviour illnesses take a long time to improve or resolve, so follow-up visits to assess progress will be recommended based on your pet’s needs and progress.
