Pets and people speak different languages, and closing that verbal gap can be extremely difficult, especially in cases where pets exhibit undesirable behaviors that result in stress and frustration. Obedience training provides pet owners with the tools necessary to successfully control pet behavior. It also allows pets to bond with their owners and build confidence and trust in them. If you are interested in obedience training for your pet, our knowledgeable staff can offer some helpful suggestions as well as recommend local certified trainers.
Obedience training can address:
Training methods vary depending on your pet’s willingness to learn and the length of their attention span. We believe the goal is to never punish a pet, but to provide a clear understanding of good behavior versus bad behavior. Obedience training classes teach you the skills necessary to control your pet. This consistency will offer your pet reliability and will reinforce the level of expectation for them. We also try to teach pet owners to prevent undesirable behavior before it happens; determining what causes the behavior allows you, as a pet owner, to be proactive in preventing it.
All pet training techniques should be humane and include positive reinforcement.
Feel free to contact our office and ask questions, or schedule your consultation with the veterinarian to get suggestions or referrals to trainers.
I have been with the South Point Vet Hospital for 2 years now. My two cats, namely Simba and Amber, now 17 years old have become regular visitors to the clinic.
After initial testing, their kidneys were failing due to protein intolerance due to their ages. As well as changing their diet to low protein food, dry and wet, they also have liquids intravenously every two weeks to help with their kidney functions. They seem to be doing well with this treatment. I shudder to think what the outcome would have been if Dr. Grubac had not gone down this route or been patient enough to try.
Dr. Grubac is a patient, dedicated and most of all, a good listener that seems to find alternative solutions that one can try to help with my cats' condition. She is all about the animals but is also very compassionate with the owners!!!
I am so happy with this clinic and the efforts of Dr. Grubac and all the staff at the clinic. They always greet you with a smile and cannot do enough to assist wherever needed. They are always taking in animals either found or from the SPCA and endeavor to find homes for them which is not an easy task.
Thank you again to the South Point Vet Hospital for their compassion and generosity towards all animals.
