At OABT we bring you years of experience in dealing with the vast spectrum of behaviour issues in companion animals – without resorting to coercion or intimidation. Owners are encouraged and coached to understand their pets at their own pace, and the emphasis is on fostering a mutually beneficial partnership, as well as training and rehabilitating using kind, science-backed effective methods.
Our behaviourists can help you with all canine issues, as well as those of other companion animals, specifically cats and rabbits.
Canine behaviour is a complex subject and one size does not fit all. For this reason, it is very important that any behaviour advice be tailored to individual needs. Our behaviourists can help you with a range of canine behaviour issues, from simple training problems such as pulling on lead, mouthing, chewing and/or nipping, to more serious problems such as barking, hyperactivity, separation anxiety or issues, phobias, abnormal repetitive behaviours, fearfulness, and all types of aggression. This list is not exhaustive.
Clients who experience issues with aggression, have the option to enroll in specialized classes to help boost their behaviour modification programme.
Affordable phone consultations are also available for simple but invaluable advice on:
- choosing a new puppy or dog to suit your personality type-energy levels and lifestyle
- bringing a new puppy home
- how to safely introduce a new dog to your household
- how to introduce your new baby to your dog
- managing a multi-dog household
- behavioural changes in senior dogs
Cats are sensitive creatures who can become easily stressed if they experience sudden changes in their environment. If your cat is feeling anxious and stressed, or your usually well-behaved kitty has turned into a feline terrorist, we can help with simple problems or more complex issues.
Whether your cat is soiling indoors, scratching the furniture, fighting with other household cats, being bullied by neighbourhood cats, displaying aggression towards humans, taken exception to the arrival of a new puppy or baby-or experiencing any other issue, help is at hand.
Prevention is better than cure so consider investing in a very reasonably priced phone consultation, if you require advice on how to introduce a new cat into your household, introduce your cat to your new dog, or introducing a new baby to your cat.
Rabbits have a unique social structure and communication system and can be easily misunderstood. A lack of understanding in what makes your rabbit tick can result in a very unhappy bunny and give rise to aggression towards other rabbits, biting and scratching of owners due to poor handling, as well as destructive behaviour.
If your rabbit is under stress and displaying unwanted behaviours, do not delay getting help, as the problem is unlikely to improve on its own and will probably escalate. Our behaviourists can help you to understand your rabbit.
