Behaviour Training: Dogs
Dogs and people are the same in that we are all unique, with our own vibrant personalities. Unfortunately, sometimes this can manifest in problematic or disruptive behaviors, some of which may even put the dog's own health at risk!
Dogs and people are different in that you can't easily explain to a dog why what they are doing is wrong, and that's where Mono Way Veterinary can help. Our behavioral therapist brings extensive experience in behavior training for a wide range of dog breeds and can provide advice on your specific requirements.
Expectations you should have during behavioral training
Our team has extensive experience in behavior training with a range of breeds to help them and their owners live harmoniously. Whether it's a private session, group class, or day training, our behavioral therapist can provide tips, practical instruction, and advice that makes the difference.
Behaviour Training Rehabilitation Options
Once you and your vet decide whether your pet requires behavior training, it's time to consider which type of training or treatment would be the best fit. Training can take many forms, including:
- Group class
- Private sessions
- Day Training
We would be happy to explain each of these options to you and help you determine which one your pet needs. Each has pros and cons, and any combination of them might be the best fit for you.
Benefits of behavior training
There are a number of potential benefits to behavior training for dogs. Here are a few benefits to consider:
- Correct bad habits or specific behavior problems
Despite our best efforts, our dogs can develop bad habits, unwanted behaviors, or behavior problems that need professional attention and correction.
Behavior training can address potty issues, running out open doors, jumping up on, or nipping people.
Not only will these behaviors be addressed, you'll also learn how to redirect your pet's actions to more appropriate behavior.
- Develop a stronger bond with your dog
While part of behavior training focuses on addressing negative or unwanted behaviors in your dog, it will also help you build a solid, trusting relationship and afford opportunities for continued learning - for both you and your pet.
- Help your dog feel fulfilled and confident.
When your dog is properly stimulated, confident, and fulfilled they are much more likely to be well-behaved. Behavior training will help both of you feel more fulfilled - and your dog will enjoy showing off their new skills.
