Dog Behaviour Solutions

Dogs are creatures of habit, even when those habits are not the ones you want them to exhibit. If you often wonder what makes your pet behave the way he does, you aren’t alone. Dog behaviour has been a topic of interest to all types of specialists and researchers during the past decades. Advances in understanding how dogs think and why they act the way they do has provided specialists with the tools we need to change the way they act.

Kalmpets offers a variety of dog behaviour solutions for behaviour problems for pets from puppies to senior dogs. Everything we do is based on proven methods. Training your dog is more than just showing it what to do and hoping that he understands what you want.

Our holistic approach to dog training and dog behaviour problems includes using positive reinforcement, addressing nutrition and exercise needs, and creating a fun environment where it can learn new things. It’s a better way to care for your dog.

What We Offer

Our diverse team of specialists provides dogs with the right type of dog care to create a happier, more balanced member of the family. We know how to break through the communication barrier and let your dog know what kind of behaviour you expect from him. Without a solid foundation, it is nearly impossible to teach your dog the skills needed to excel in recreational or competitive events such as running agility courses.
