Behavior Counseling

Even with the right training and lots of attention and love, your dog or cat can develop bad habits or unwanted behaviors. 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. Derry Animal Hospital offers behavior counseling for many of your pet’s problems. Our highly skilled dog trainer Christina Patriquin, CVT offers consultations, classroom lessons, private and group training and phone consultations.

Causes of behavior problems can be environmental, such as a schedule change or introduction of a new baby or pet; learned, as a result of unintentional positive reinforcement; or genetic. Furthermore, any painful disease or condition or degenerative change associated with aging can cause or contribute to behavior problems.

Our assessment begins with your pet’s clinical history and a thorough medical examination. Before beginning behavior therapy, any medical problems that have been diagnosed will be treated. Addressing the underlying medical problem or providing pain relief, along with behavior modification techniques, can often resolve some of these problems.

Get the best care for your best friend.
