Behavioral Counseling

You love your pet – there’s no question about that. But when that pet exhibits certain behaviors that are disruptive and undesirable, it can be difficult to form that all important bond and truly welcome them as part of the family. If you’re struggling with unwanted pet behavior, the team at Cornell Center Animal Hospital wants you to know that you’re not alone. More importantly, you don’t have to live with your pet’s bad behavior a moment longer.

Our professional behavioral counseling services will help get to the bottom of your companion’s bad habits, and provide you with the education, tools and support needed to help your pet overcome that behavior once and for all.

Animals act out for a number of reasons. Often times, the behaviors you’re seeing are merely symptoms of a larger underlying problem. For instance, a pet that eliminates in the house or barks incessantly when left alone may actually be suffering from separation anxiety. What’s more, some medical conditions can cause signs and symptoms that may be misinterpreted as bad behavior. It’s important that we pinpoint exactly what’s causing the unwanted behavior if we are going to successfully overcome it.

Our experts will work with you to determine the root cause of the problem, and then develop a plan that incorporates proven techniques to achieve real, permanent results. If necessary, we can also recommend some local trainers that can provide more in-depth assistance with behavior and obedience issues. Some of the behavioral problems we can discuss with you include:

  • House Training Problems
  • Aggression
  • Biting
  • Barking
  • Chewing
  • Destructive Behavior
  • Digging
  • Separation Anxiety
  • Self-Mutilation
  • And Much More…

Whatever behavior happens to be standing in the way of your relationship with your pet, we can help. Let us help bring out the balanced, well-behaved family member we know your pet is capable of becoming.
