Dogs are highly social animals. Their behavioural patterns account for their trainability, playfulness and ability to fit into human households and social situations. Much of their natural instinctive behaviour revolves around learning how to interact with other members of their species.
Knowing what normal dog behaviour is will help you understand why your dog does what it does. This can help prevent some behavioural patterns from occurring, and can help you retrain your dog if bad habits develop. Behavioural therapy treats all forms of aggression, separation anxiety, obsessive–compulsive behaviour, multi-dog households, integrating a new baby or new pet into the household, and fears and phobias.
Behavioural therapy at Kennel & Paddock does not always require a referral. For more information, please contact us.
