Solving any behavioural problem involves three steps:-
Pet behaviour consultations
1. Assessing the behaviour with our pet behaviour consultations to determine the true underlying cause of the disorder.
2. Implementing the therapy that is appropriate to treat the diagnosed disorder.
3. Follow up after the pet behaviour consultations to ensure the problem is being solved.
The causes of unwanted pet behaviour can vary, so pet behaviour consultations are very important. In just 30 minutes, your pet will receive a full health examination. Once we rule out any underlying medical issues, we will proceed in getting to know more about your pet, your lifestyle and its behaviour at home. We work alongside Brisbane’s own behaviourist consultant Dr Cam Day to deliver the most accurate diagnosis and most appropriate course of treatment possible.
Dr Cam Day has been practising animal behaviour for over 20 years and is very highly regarded within the profession.
Following your pet behaviour consultations, we will give you a full report from Dr Cam Day, with recommendations and training guide on getting your problem solved.
