We also offer behavior modification consultations for both dogs and cats. Behavior consultations are appropriate for pets with pronounced problems such as
Chronic Housebreaking or Litter Box Problems
The consultation process involves the owner completing a detailed history questionnaire from which the consultant will begin to devise a corrective program. We then meet with you and your pet either at Fresno Vet Specialty and Emergency Center or your home.
Do you have a dog that barks, growls and lunges when passing other dogs on a walk? A cat who urinates outside of its litter box? How about a dog that hides under your bed during thunderstorms? Pet owners that struggle with pronounced pet behavior problems such as these, can often benefit from a behavioral dog trainer who specializes in the field of behavior modification.
Behavior modification is the systematic approach to changing a dog’s emotional response to a particular stimulus. Where traditional dog obedience training focuses on training specific commands like sit, stay and down, behavior modification focuses on changing a dog’s reaction to a certain circumstance. The circumstance can involve a person, an object, another animal or even a sound. However, many behavior modification plans often incorporate the use of traditional dog training commands. The execution of these trained behaviors are the foundation to a successful behavior modification plan.
Since not all dog behavior problems are exactly the same, the first step will be a behavior modification consultation. The consultation will allow the trainer to get to the bottom of what is happening, make a clear assessment of your dog's behavior and formulate a training plan. The plan should provide step by step instructions including specific training techniques, triggers to avoid and management solutions to help your dog reach its full potential.
