Behavioral Counseling with Your Milpitas Veterinarians

Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. But do not despair or lose hope! Please don't make the mistake of believing that you and your family must live with these problems or worse, consider giving up your pet. Your Milpitas veterinarian believes a great deal of behavioral problems can be prevented and are environmental. Most issues relate to anxiety and environment, and we perform behavioral consultations that give owners the tools to treat their pet's behavioral problem at home.

We use different techniques to help your pet understand their behaviors and how to control them. Our services include group classes, private sessions, day training, and board & train sessions. If your pet is in need of some basis command education, we recommend group classes. This is ideal for pets who are updated on all their shots and who are ready to socialize with other animals. Group class is not recommended for young puppies until they are a bit more mature. Private sessions would be better suited for pets who have very specific behavioral problems. Examples of these issues would be resource guarding, separation anxiety, and aggression. Day and board training is better suited for pets who have busy owners. This allows your Milpitas veterinarian to train your pet while you are away, just be sure to agree on the schedule and plan for training your pet since you won’t be there to supervise.

Please give us a call us today at 408-956-8061 so we can help your pet feel like themselves again!
