Animal Behavior & Training

Behavior Problems are Common!

If your pet has a behavior problem, you are not alone! Many pet owners complain that their pets misbehave, but usually these animals are just carrying out their natural behaviours in an inappropriate (to us) environment.  When we bring our pets into our homes, we instantly expect them to behave perfectly. Of course, as any animal lover will know, this does not always happen! This is almost always because we expect them to 'know' what we consider to be 'right' and 'wrong' without actually taking the time to teach them. But, with a little training and/or behaviour modification, you will be amazed at what your pet can achieve!
