DOG
BEHAVIOR

Vet At Your Door is dedicated to providing the best in-home veterinary care, including behavior evaluations and advice, tailored to meet the unique needs of your pets. Understanding your dog's behavior is crucial for a harmonious household, and we are here to guide you through common issues and how our Fear Free Certified approach can help in the comfort of your own home.

Why Does My Dog Steal Things?

Dogs naturally steal items that catch their interest. This behavior is more about curiosity than mischief. At Vet At Your Door, we understand the importance of creating a safe and engaging environment for your dog at home. Our team can offer advice on how to redirect this behavior positively, using toys and other dog-friendly items to keep your pet entertained.

Why Is My Dog Engaging in Rough Play?

Rough play is normal among dogs but can escalate quickly. We can help you understand the difference between playful and aggressive behavior. Our approach involves teaching you how to calmly assert control and provide necessary breaks in play to manage your dog's excitement in a familiar and comfortable setting.

What to Do About My Dog Constantly Biting?

Biting, especially in young dogs, is a way to explore their environment. Our team can guide you on socialization techniques and how to expose your dog to various settings to alleviate discomfort. This can be achieved more effectively in a familiar home environment where your dog feels safe.

How do I Handle a Dog Chasing After Moving Objects?

Chasing is a natural instinct for dogs. We at Vet At Your Door can offer tailored advice on desensitization and obedience training to manage this behavior. Training your dog at home, where they are most comfortable, can be more effective and less stressful for your pet.

My Dog Still Has Accidents. How do I fix this? 

 Inappropriate elimination can be a sign of medical issues or lack of training. Our team can work with you to rule out health problems and revisit housebreaking basics in a familiar, stress-free environment, ensuring your dog feels secure and understood.

 

How Do I Get My Dog To Stop Jumping on People?

Dogs often jump up as a greeting. Our approach focuses on positive reinforcement and teaching alternative greetings in a relaxed home setting, where your dog is most receptive to learning.

How Do I Deal with Separation Anxiety in My Dog? 

Separation anxiety is a common issue that can lead to destructive behaviors. We focus on gradual training techniques and may suggest suitable anxiety aids. Addressing this issue in the home, where it occurs, allows for a more effective and personalized approach.

 

How Do I Deal With Dog Aggression?

Understanding and managing dog aggression requires identifying its type and triggers. We emphasize the importance of safety and can provide in-home assessments and training strategies to manage and reduce aggressive behaviors in a familiar environment.

What Are Signs of Behavior Issues in Dogs? 

Signs of distress like excessive barking or aggression indicate behavioral issues. At Vet At Your Door, we can help you interpret these signs and implement strategies to address them in the comfort and security of your home.

What Are Causes of Behavior Issues?  

Stress, anxiety, and environmental changes can lead to behavioral issues. Our team can assist you in creating a calming home environment and provide training to alleviate your dog's stress.

At Vet At Your Door, we believe in a compassionate and professional approach to addressing your dog's behavioral issues. We are committed to working with you and your furry family member to understand and manage these behaviors effectively in the comfort and security of your own home.
