Behaviour Programme at Kildare Vet
We are delighted to introduce our new training programme for dogs now available
Please contact the clinic to put your name on the list if you would like to avail of our new dog behaviour training programme. This will involve eduation for both dog and owner on how to train your pet and combat any behavioural issues your pet may have. We now have the facility to make arrangements to call out to your home and view the dog in as natural environment as possible, and to make changes within the family to improve quality of life for you and your best friend. In most families or homes there are certain things and modifications that need to be made.
We have an increasing client base with dogs that have certain behavioural issues. While these may start out small, they can grow to an increasing and worrying size if left unattended. These can grow to such an issue that unfortunately re-homing may be considered or even euthanasia in some extreme cases. These problems can usually be combated by continuous client education, and correcting problems while young and before they has a chance to take hold and become ingrained. Such problems you may encounter that we may help you combat are;
- separation anxiety
- excessive barking
- inappropriate urination and/or defecation
- play biting
- toilet training
- leash walking
For plenty of dogs and their owners the learning of canine behaviour is hugely important and effective to having a happy healthy relationship with your pet. Misconceptions and ideas and misinformation can lead to a lot of inaccuracies about dog training and we are here to give you correct information. It usually just takes time, treats, calmness and consistency. The old saying you can't teach an old dog new tricks - is untrue. It will just take a little longer! Certain breeds can also need more handling and a stricter set of rules and a clear objective to what they are allowed to do and what not allowed to do. Huskies for example are particularly hard to train in recall, that is to come back to the owner when off the leash. We have different programmes in place for family pets and different breeds.
Look forward to hearing from you
