Life On Paws help dog and cat owners in Harrogate and Yorkshire to understand, manage and change their pet’s problem behaviour.
Because Dog Behaviour and Cat Behaviour is complex, how do you know if you’ve got a behaviour problem on your hands? If the situation with your dog or cat is having a negative impact on you, your family, other people or pets, then it’s a problem.
Unwanted behaviour is not only an issue for the owner, it can be an issue for the dog or cat too.
If you’re concerned about your dog or cat’s behaviour, it’s tempting to seek advice from friends, family or work colleagues, or by doing research on the internet or applying techniques you’ve seen on television. However, poor advice, no matter how well intentioned, can make unwanted behaviour worse, potentially more dangerous and also more difficult to address.
The RSPCA advise owners to work with a Dog Behaviourist or Cat Behaviourist who is a member of the Association of Pet Behaviour Counsellors (like me – see About for more details) or a certified clinical animal behaviourist via the Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour.
Seeking expert advice can help nip a developing problem in the bud or help address more serious long standing behaviour.
