Let’s Solve Your Pet’s Behavior Problems Together.

We are the leading dog and cat behavior experts in Northern Virginia and the metro D.C. area, and have been providing pet behavior solutions since 1990.  Our in-home consultations allow us to evaluate your pet’s behavior in their familiar environment where we uncover the root cause of problem behaviors.  We then build a custom behavior treatment protocol that teaches you how to reduce stress, anxiety, fear, or aggression while implementing successful desensitization and behavior modification techniques to resolve your pet’s behavior issues.

We use a variety of positive approaches, never harsh or punishing, to solve dog and cat behavior problems.  We  will show you how to resolve your pet’s behavior issues and rebuild your relationship with your pet, just like we’ve done for so many of our clients.  You can view some of our success stories on our Happy Tails page.

If you’ve been struggling with the challenges of dog or cat behavior issues and have been hoping to find someone knowledgeable and effective, please contact us.

Dog Behavior

We have successfully resolved thousands of tough dog behavior problems.  We focus on providing dog families with the tools they need to create lasting behavior change using positive behavior modification and training techniques that strengthen the relationship with their dog.  We show you how to bring about change without the use of forceful, aversive, or fear producing methods that often make problem behaviors worse, and can damage the relationship between the dog and his or her family.  With our positive methods, we have helped many dogs with issues like separation anxiety, canine rivalry, various aggressive behavior, fears and phobias, house soiling,  and puppy behaviors like mouthing, jumping, and chewing.

 

Cat Behavior

We specialize in difficult cat behavior issues using the latest positive training and behavior modification techniques.  We will show you how to  resolve your cat’s behavior issues while improving your relationship with your cat.  We have successfully resolved numerous litter box problems, territorial spraying, feline rivalry, destructive behavior, as well as a variety of aggressive cat issues.  We also help cats adapt to a new home, new baby, or other changes in family dynamics, easing the transition and focusing on ways to reduce stress and aide in successful adaptation to these changes.

 

 

“I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you. We had the two   dachshunds, Precious and Jasmine who had a hard time adapting to our new baby. I am happy to say that both dogs are doing WONDERFUL! Things are just great! I just wanted to say thank you again because had it not been for you, we probably wouldn’t have our Jasmine with us anymore because it seems everyone thought getting rid of her was the only option and you helped us prove them wrong. 🙂 Thanks again and take care.”
