Pet Counseling

Behavior Counseling

Recent studies indicate the value of living with companion animals, such as lowering blood pressure and easing depression. In return, animals thrive on the love and attention they receive from us. Our goal is to enhance this bond by focusing on positive reinforcement rather than punishment. Both you and your pet benefit from this approach, as the human-animal bond is strengthened.

Animals respond well to positive reinforcement, allowing us to change undesirable behaviors into desirable behaviors. At AWC, we feel animals deserve our respect; therefore we suggest gentle treatment methods along with appropriate techniques. This way, much can be accomplished without breaking the animal's spirit, but instead improving trust and communication.

Schedule a consultation at AWC to talk about your animal's behavior issues, and then learn how to gently correct the behaviors that are threatening the special bond between you and your pet.
