A well-trained pet adds to a positive home environment for every family. Our professional staff offers extensive experience in addressing the behavioral issues and training concerns for a wide range of pet owners.
Pets that show aggression, soil in the house, or refuse to obey simple commands leave owners frustrated; many of these unruly pets end up in shelters or abandoned. Simple techniques for basic training will relieve this frustration and enhance the pet/owner relationship.
Your South Wilton veterinary professionals can help determine if there is a physical issue causing problem behaviors such as an undiagnosed illness or intestinal parasites, or if basic training techniques are recommended. Even changes in the make-up of your family or a move to a new home can cause a behavioral change in a pet.
As soon as you identify a problem behavior, we work with you to find the cause and offer resources to assist you in restoring a positive relationship with your animal companion. Contact our clinic with questions and concerns about your pet's behavior.
South Wilton Veterinary Group is now working with Dr. Margaret (Peggy) Reed and Canine Training Behavior Services LLC, a nationally acclaimed canine training firm, to offer puppy socialization and obedience classes to our clients. Dr. Reed is an award-winning animal training professional who has worked with top name celebrities in film, television, theater, and politics. She is licensed by the American Kennel Club as a judge of purebred dogs, is the breeder of several Best in Show dogs, and is committed to quality training for all canines.
Dr. Reed and her associates offer socialization classes for puppies, age 8 weeks to 5 months. This class is designed to influence puppy development, knowledge, and owner skills to help dogs develop into happy, safe, and obedient pets. Problem prevention, house soiling, nuisance barking, separation anxiety, chewing, and basic commands such as sit, come, and down are addressed.
A family obedience class for dogs age 5 months or older is also offered. No prior training is necessary to participate in this class, and all breeds and ages are welcome. Emphasis is placed on the prevention of problem behaviors and the development of good manners. Traditional exercises, such as come, sit, down, and stay, are addressed as well as chewing and jumping. Grooming, first-aid, exercise, and nutrition also are discussed.
South Wilton Veterinary Group is excited to offer this service to our clients. We are especially thrilled to be working with such an accomplished and prestigious firm as Canine Training Behavior Services LLC and Dr. Reed. We encourage all of our clients to take advantage of this wonderful opportunity.
