Pet Behavior Counseling

Pets have learned how to live with humans, and they usually want to please humans. Pet owners teach their pets how to behave and what behavior is acceptable inside and outside of the home. At times, you may realize that your pet's behavior changes due to a variety of reasons such as aging or environmental changes. The change in behavior could be positive, but at times, it may be negative as well. If you live in or around Watertown, CT, and your dog's behavior is becoming out of control, you should visit our veterinarians at Watertown Animal Hospital for a pet counseling session.

For many years, we have helped pet parents deal with behavior issues with their pets. After some pet behavior counseling sessions, the pet owners note positive changes with their pets. There are many reasons why your pet may have behavior issues, and you need to address these issues as early as possible for the best results.


The Importance of Pet Behavior Counseling

If you believe that your pet has behavior issues, our veterinarians can help you deal with them. Some of these behaviors may be affecting your pet psychologically, physically, and mentally. Our veterinarian can help you manage these issues before they become worse. Some of these bad behaviors that you may note in your pet include:

  • Begging for food
  • Food guarding
  • Anxiety
  • Barking (one of the most common dog behavior issues)
  • Chewing
  • Fear and phobias
  • Depression
  • Isolation

If your pet has any of the above behaviors, then pet counseling can help your pet in several ways.

  • Help your pet become physically fit
  • Reduces loneliness in pets
  • Helps your pet become less fearful
  • Makes pets more extroverted
  • Enhances esteem in pets
  • Helps build healthy behaviors

Read What Our Clients Say

  • "The staff is wonderful. We brought Otis, a very large 4 yr old Rottie there for an ACL/miniscus surgery. Everything was successful. We just brought him for his final follow up and all is good. This big guy has no manners and no sense of personal space except for his own space, but he loves the receptionists and vet techs there, and they love him. Nothing but good things to say about Watertown Veterinary Hospital."
