Behaviour and Socialization

If you’re concerned about or bothered by an aspect of your pet’s behaviour, we can help. Dr. O’Grady and her staff have years of working with pet’s behaviour. We can work with you and your pet to stop or change the behaviour. Much aggressive, fearful, or inappropriate behaviour in dogs and cats can be modified through a combination of desensitization and counter-conditioning. These techniques can have dramatic results when applied properly. In some cases, medication can also help. Contact us for an appointment if you’d like a behavioural consultation.

Puppy

Training starts as soon as you pick up your new puppy! Early training and socialization can make the difference between having a wonderful, well behaved pet who you can take anywhere or creating a monster dog that is simply unpleasant to live with or down right dangerous.

With many years of puppy/dog training experience we can help you get off to the right start and stay on the path to making your puppy into a wonderful companion that you will be proud to take anywhere.

We look forward to meeting your new puppy! Schedule your appointment today and give your pup the best possible start towards a healthy, happy future.

Kitten

Training starts as soon as you pick up your new kitten! Early training and socialization can make the difference between having a wonderful, well-behaved cat. Decide on the house rules then strictly enforce them. If you don’t want the kitten on the counter top, then don’t let him/her up because they look cute.

Give your kitten the best start possible!  Schedule your kitten for his or her first exam as soon as possible.
