Behavioural problems are a common concern for pet owners. Early intervention is key in resolving behavioural issues, and can help prevent them progressing into serious problems.

  • Separation Anxiety
  • Destructive Chewing
  • Excessive barking 
  • Inappropriate toileting
  • Tail chasing
  • Hyperexcitable
  • Fears and Phobias
  • Jumping up
  • Food begging
  • Digging
  • Leash pulling


Behaviour Concerns in Cats

  • Litter box problems
  • Inappropriate urination and spraying
  • Inappropriate scratching
  • Aggression
  • Separation anxiety


We provide extended length behavioural consultations with our vets by appointment.

For very complex behavioural issues, we collaborate with behavioural specialists, and in some cases may feel a referral will provide the best opportunity for a successful outcome for your pet.

Equally important, and crucial to the minimising of behavioural difficulties later, is beginning the training of your puppy and kitten as soon as you bring it home.

Puppy house training tips

Our Puppy Preschool is an excellent way to get you started with the correct puppy training techniques and socialisation for your puppy.
