Behavioral training is important in developing the bond between a pet and their parent. To properly socialize your furry friend, they will need to learn what behaviors are and are not appropriate.
While this includes such basic commands as “sit,” “down,” and “stay” for a dog, even cats can benefit from behavioral training. From keeping your kitty off of the counter or stopping them from clawing furniture, training can be invaluable.

Experienced Pet Training Help
The process of training a pet to behave properly can be time-consuming and quite frustrating for those who are inexperienced. With patience, time, and a bit of effort, the process can be rewarding and a lot of fun for both you and your furry friend.
Animal Care Clinic can refer you to obedience training experts and behaviorists. These specialists provide consulting when your pet displays behavioral issues, and they will work with you on targeting the underlying cause of any issues.
Targeting the Issues
There are many reasons for behavioral problems in pets. These can include loneliness, anxiety, or a lack of effective boundaries. Whether your pet is new to behavioral modification or is an experienced show veteran, our veterinarians are experienced experts at addressing behavioral issues, ruling out medical issues such as neurological or thyroid problems and life changes.
Some of the behavior problems we address are:
- Cats with urination issues
- Food aggression
Working with pets is our passion. We believe that training does not stop with the experts, but that pet parents are vital to the process of training. We will help you learn how to better get along as a family and keep the training going at home.
At Animal Care Clinic, our staff will educate you to create a perfect training routine. If you have any questions, or would like more information about behavioral training, give us a call!
