Behaviour Consulting

No matter how much you love your dog, unwanted behaviour might have you wishing for a break. Our Behaviour Vets understand the frustration and distress that accompanies dog and cat behaviour problems. Our empathetic, knowledgeable and supportive Behaviour Vets and our team of dog behaviour specialists in Perth can help change your dog’s behaviour into something more positive.

Consulting with a dog Behaviour Vet is the first step towards understanding why your dog behaves the way they do. We can help you communicate with your dog and address the unwanted behaviour causing problems for both of you. Our Behaviour Vets will take the time to listen and understand your pet and help you work towards treatment goals that optimise you and your pet’s wellbeing. Improving behaviour problems can take time, and our behaviour vets will be right with you to provide support at every step.

Our dog Behaviour Vet’s will individually tailor a training method to your dog’s lifestyle and the training goals you have for the future. We aim to match the expectations for how you want your dog to behave and what you would like to accomplish together.

The time you and your dog spend with our Dog Behaviour Specialist in Perth will impact both of you now and in the future. Imagine knowing what to expect from your dog without worrying that he will misbehave.

Different dog owners have other ideas of what they want from their dogs. Dogs also differ in what it takes to feel happy and secure. Our Behaviour Vet consultants will provide the information needed to get the most from your dog.
