When To Seek Help 2018-03-01T15:36:24+00:00

People seek help for their pets for a variety of reasons.

Our pets are part of the family, we love them and want the best for them. Every pet also has their own little quirks; but sometimes, those quirks can make life a little difficult. Below is a brief outline with a few hints and tips about when it’s the right time for you to seek help, but really, if it is a problem for you and your pet then there is no harm in reaching out to make things better.

Dogs

Dogs

There are a great many reasons why a dog may develop problem behaviour. Socialisation, early development, general temperament, life experiences, training, handling and misunderstandings can all contribute to inappropriate behaviour developing – a dog doesn’t have to have had a troubled life to develop problem behaviour.

Some reasons for dogs to be referred for behaviour consultations include;
  • Destruction
  • Separation related problems
  • Aggression
  • Excessive barking
  • Toilet problems
  • Fears & phobias
  • And much more

Cats

It is important to consider the cat’s wider environment as well as its past experiences and temperament when implementing changes to modify behaviour. Many people believe that cats are hard to train or to change their habits but this is often not the case.

Small Furries

Small animals are a very popular choice as pet. Unfortunately it is not uncommon for problems to arise and understanding of the species involved is key to helping resolve many of their behavioural problems. Size is no object and any species from rabbits and ferrets to rats and mice can display less than desirable behaviour to their humans. Often once small animals develop problems they are relegated to their cages which can have serious welfare implications for these animals. For advice on prevention of behaviour problems why not book an hour of environmental enrichment advice?
