Being able to control your pet’s behaviour is an important part of being a responsible pet owner and helps to ensure your pet enjoys a safe and happy life.

Whether you’re trying to train your puppy to walk on a lead or attempting to train your senior cat out of using the living room as her personal litter box, Vets on Balwyn are here to provide you with help and support. We can help you manage a wide spectrum of behavioural issues affecting cats and dogs as well as smaller animals.

The management approach we take very much depends on the type of behavioural problem your pet is exhibiting and takes into account other factors such as their age, current state of health, and lifestyle. Sometimes, just a few simple lifestyle changes or switching to a different routine can resolve the problem; however, in some instances, we may refer you to a professional dog trainer or veterinary behaviourist. If you’re the owner of a new puppy and want to establish the training basics early on, we recommend enrolling in our Puppy Pre-School.
