Sometimes, when a puppy or adult dog displays unusual behavioral problems such as dog to dog aggression or dog to human aggression, anxiety and what are known as stereotypical behaviors – excessive licking, tail chasing, noise phobias, etc. — there can be a medical condition causing the behavior. So we often recommend a visit to the vet to address potential underlying issues. In fact, in many cases, we work in tandem with veterinarians and owners.
Once medical issues have been addressed, we teach you how to work with your dog to put an end to the unwanted behaviors.
