Creating a harmonious living space for humans and animals can sometimes feel like a challenge; cats and dogs have very specific physical as well as emotional needs, and once we can understand and meet them we can help our pet to shine as the very best version of themselves.
As pet owners and veterinarians, we understand how challenging it can be to live with a pet whose behaviour is unpredictable, whether you are managing anxiety, aggression, or urination outside of the litter box. Understanding how to set healthy and consistent boundaries for our pets without feeling the need to physically punish or dominate them is an important part of a positive approach to pet behaviour and training.
GVC Pet Behaviour and Training can help with:
- Setting healthy and consistent boundaries
- Comprehensive behaviour consultations
- One-to-one and group dog and cat training
GVC’s Owner and Head Vet, Dr Katrin, has had a life-long interest in pet behaviour, and completed her doctorate thesis on the human-animal bond in 1999. Many of GVC’s Cat Friendly and Fear Free principles are based on the emotional needs of cats and dogs, and Dr Katrin is currently enrolled in the ISFM 2-year Advanced Diploma in Feline Behaviour, and holds the ‘Think Dog’ Certificate in Dog Behaviour and Training.
