Is unwanted behavior driving a wedge between you and your four-legged friend?

Whether it’s a basic house training issue or something more serious, like aggression, unwanted pet behavior can be stressful for everyone. The experienced team at Dixie Road Pet Clinic can help restore a sense of peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

The key to overcoming animal behavior issues lies in accurately identifying the problem. To begin, we must rule out any potential medical causes. Many ailments have symptoms that can be easily mistaken for bad behavior. For instance, a cat that urinates outside the litter box may not be acting out, but actually be experiencing a health issue.

Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the next step involves pinpointing the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is imperative because in many cases, a bigger problem may manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone could actually be a symptom of separation anxiety. We’ll work with you to determine precisely what the situation is so we can address it most effectively.

Some of the common pet behavior problems we can assist with include:

  • House training
  • Excessive barking
  • Jumping
  • Digging
  • Biting
  • Destructive behavior
  • Aggression
  • Fear/anxiety

A Plan That Gets Results

With a proper diagnosis in hand, the final step is developing a strategy for overcoming the behavior problem once and for all. There are a number of different ways to approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, rewards, training or something else, we’ll work with you to customize a plan that gets results.

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your furry family member. Give Dixie Road Pet Clinic a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
