BEHAVORIAL COUNSELING

Is unwanted behavior driving a wedge between you and your pet?

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 Cat & Dog Clinic of Bellevue can help restore peace and balance back into your home.

Understanding the Problem

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

Once we’ve got a clean bill of health, the next step is identifying the exact behavior we’re dealing with. This is essential because in many cases, a bigger problem can manifest itself in smaller ways. For example, destructive behavior when left alone may actually be a sign 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 behavior problems our team 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 next step is developing a strategy for overcoming the problem behavior once and for all. There are several different ways we can approach a behavior issue. Whether it’s positive reinforcement, training, rewards or something else, we’ll work with you to create a customized plan that gets results. 

Don’t let unwanted behavior stand in the way of bonding with your pet. Give Cat & Dog Clinic of Bellevue a call and let us help you enjoy the loving, peaceful relationship you both deserve.
