Behavior modification: For a happier pet AND a happier you

Does your pet have a bad habit?  Or would you like to bond more closely to your pet?  Many pets develop behavioral issues that can cause frustration and heartache.  Our veterinarians listen closely to your concerns and can help you address the bad habits that your pet may have.  Many behavioral problems can be corrected with appropriate training for you and your pet.  Our obedience classes given by our experienced trainer help socialize your pup and make them a more enjoyable family member.  If needed, our trainer can provide one-on-one training sessions to address the most stubborn of pets.

Rely West Gate Veterinary Hospital to help your pet overcome any behavioral problems he or she may be having. Whether your pet is exhibiting aggression, separation anxiety, phobias or compulsive disorders, we can help.

We use a combination of methods to modify pet behavior, including training, environmental changes and medication. In every instance, through the use of techniques and programs that have been designed specifically for pets, provide proven advice as to how to correct undesirable behavior into behavior that’s sociable, obedient and fun.

We recommend positive reinforcement methods only. We do not advocate choke collars, prong collars or shock collars — and do not believe spanking or yelling at a dog serves any useful purpose.
