The Importance of Professional Animal Behavior Training Services

Animal behavior training services help pet owners learn to communicate with their furry friends better, can squash unwanted behaviors, and often create a harmonious environment in the house. According to a study by pet365, 94% of respondents stated they do at least a little training at home with their dog. However, behavior training services also apply to cats. This article will review the importance of investing in these services.

Unwanted Behaviors

Untrained pets often exhibit unwanted behaviors because they have a negative learned history or have had the opportunity to rehearse problem behaviors. For example, cats are known for scratching furniture. Dogs may chew up the baby’s toys or bark incessantly. Professional training services can help get to the root of the problem and give both the humans and the animals the tools necessary in order to successfully navigate the social situations that are challenging for them.

Owner Education

Although many pet owners know some form of training is necessary, they often don’t know how to train animals properly. Our animal behavior training services are based on scientifically proven training methods for cats and dogs. Specialists understand the long-term impact harmful and violent training methods can have on animals, which can lead to long-term aggression. They'll work with you to help you learn how to train your animal.

Individualized Training

Every pet is unique. They often have their own personality, preferences, and behaviors. That’s why it’s essential to avoid just following the advice you learn online about how to train a cat or dog. Since every animal is unique, it's important you work with professionals. Specialists will take the time to get to know you and your pet to ensure the individualized training plan is effective. You’ll enjoy getting the results you want.

Positive Reinforcement

Using punishment to teach pets what behaviors you want to see can harm the bond between the pet and the owner. It makes pets feel unsafe and can lead to further issues later. However, specialists often encourage positive reinforcement. These techniques utilize a reward system and teach your pet healthy coping mechanisms instead of relying on punishment. Positive reinforcement helps pets learn to trust you. They’ll feel more comfortable around you, and changes are likely to be long-term.

Animal behavior training services will help you enjoy a peaceful home. We can help you eliminate and reduce unwanted behaviors so you can enjoy being a pet owner again. Contact Homeward Bound Animal Behavior today to learn more about our services.
