Behavioral Counseling

Does your pet act out in ways that make it difficult to embrace them as part of the family? Unwanted pet behavior is one of the most common complaints of pet owners. If you’re struggling with a bad behavior, you’re not alone. More importantly, we can help! Aspen Commons Animal Hospital offers professional behavioral counseling services with our experienced team. We’ll get to the bottom of what’s causing your pet to act out and arm you with the education, tools and support you need to overcome that bad behavior once and for all.

The most important part of managing pet behavior issues is identifying the root cause of the problem. In some cases, a medical condition could be to blame for your pet’s behavior. Other times the behavior you’re experiencing is merely a symptom of a larger problem altogether. For instance, a pet that urinates in the house when left alone may actually be suffering from separation anxiety. We’ll work hard to pinpoint exactly what we’re dealing with so we can address it in the most effective manner possible.

Our team uses a number of proven behavior modification techniques, including reward and positive reinforcement, to help arm you with everything you need to curb those bad habits once and for all. We want to help restore peace and balance back into your home and remove the barriers that are standing in the way of you bonding with your pet.

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

  • House training problems
  • Aggression
  • Destructive behavior
  • Biting/chewing
  • Digging
  • Fear/anxiety

If you’re struggling with these or any other pet behavior problem, don’t wait another moment. Give us a call today!
