Behavioral Counseling

Just because you adore your pet doesn’t mean you have to love everything he or she does. In fact, unwanted animal behavior is the number one reason people relinquish their pets to shelters. If you’re struggling with a bad habit or two, we want you to know that you’re not alone. More importantly, we can help! The team at APMSC is trained in all aspects of companion animal behavior. We’ll work with you to identify the cause of your pet’s unwanted behavior and provide you with all of the tools and support needed to effectively overcome that behavior once and for all.

The key to managing behavior problems in pets is pinpointing the exact cause. First, you want to be sure that the behavior you’re dealing with isn’t actually a symptom of an underlying medical issue. For instance, urinating outside the litter box may seem like misbehavior, but may actually be a side effect of an infection. If there is no medical cause for your pet’s behavior, the next step is determining if that behavior is a component of a bigger problem. For example, destructive behavior can actually be a symptom of anxiety or fear. Only when we get to the bottom of the problem can we effectively address that problem in a way that will get results.

Some of the behavior issues we can provide assistance with include:

  • House training problems
  • Aggression
  • Destructive behavior
  • Excessive barking
  • Digging
  • Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Fear/anxiety

If you’re struggling with these or any other pet behavior problems, you don’t face the battle alone. Let us arm you with everything you need to overcome that negative behavior once and for all and help restore peace and balance back into your home.
