Each year, millions of dogs are surrendered to shelters because of behavioural reasons. It is the number one reason owners have to give their pets away, and we want to help. Behaviour issues in dogs can often be noticed by our veterinarians during their initial puppy visits. At this time, your dog’s veterinarian may make recommendations on various ways to correct certain behavioural issues. We want you to have a long relationship with your dog and are here to help when behavioural situations arise.
Dog counsellors are experts in their field. They can help by teaching you ways to work with your beloved pet to ensure you have a bond that will last a lifetime.
Will my pet insurance policy cover the cost of consultation?
All insurance companies are different, it would be best if you contact your insurance provider to discuss the details of your policy.
What to expect after the consultation?
After you and your dog have been evaluated by an expert, it will take hard work and consistency to ensure your pet’s behaviour improves. If you are willing to invest the time into your dog, your dog will definitely be willing to improve. Often times, our dogs do not know what we are trying to tell them, with a little help and patience your dog’s behaviour will dramatically improve.
