We love our pets. They are part of our family.

But when they behave in ways that negatively affect our lives, bother our loved ones or even put others in danger, it becomes stressful, frustrating, and difficult to live with.

Behavioral problems can result from underlying fear, anxiety, stress, genetic or learned predisposition or even medical conditions.

A Veterinary Behaviourist is in a unique position to diagnose both behavioral conditions and medical conditions that can cause or affect a pet’s behavior. Often, training alone will not solve the problem, and we require a different approach.

German Veterinary Clinic is the first in the region to offer a comprehensive Veterinary Behaviour and Training Service so we can address not only the physical, but also the mental and emotional health of your pet.

GVC’s Owner and Head Veterinarian, Dr. Katrin Jahn, is a resident in Veterinary Behaviour Medicine of both the European as well as American Colleges of Animal Welfare and Behaviour Medicine, the first veterinarian in the Middle East to specialize in this field.

So, how does it work?

We use methods based on scientific evidence and research as well as up-to-date training techniques such as positive reinforcement, counter-conditioning, and desensitization together with environmental modification and owner education to provide an ethical, punishment-free, welfare compatible way of approaching your pet’s behavior.

Veterinarians are able to address behaviour problems from a species-specific and developmental perspective with a focus on understanding your pet’s body language and communication style and are able to use appropriate, individually tailored medications, pheromones and nutraceuticals to best help your pet where necessary.

Your pet will never be subjected to methods that include punishment, startling, hurting, or shocking your pet. We can alleviate undesirable behaviors in pets while treating them with the kindness, gentleness, respect, and admiration they deserve.

Our aim is to help your pet become the very best pet they can be!

  • Aggression
  • Destructive behaviors
  • Fears, anxieties, and phobias
