Seminar Topics:

Did my pet always do that?  The downside of being with your pets all time.

 

Lecture 1:    Was my dog always this snarky?

Perhaps your dog is annoyed at being bothered all the time and now is responding aggressively toward you when you interact.  In this lesson we will discuss how and why dogs may show displeasure and aggression when we interact with them all day long.

 

Lecture 2:    Bark, bark, bark how can I get any work done?

Unbeknownst to you your dog spends all day looking out the window and barking! And the pulling on leash!  How to help owners get better control of their dogs’ behavior.

 

Lecture 3:  How do I prepare my dog for my return to work?

Now that the two of you have been home all the time together parting may be problematic.  We will discuss separation anxiety and how some simple tasks may help prepare your dog for your return to the office.

 

Lecture 4:   Why are my cats fighting and urine marking?

Not only is your routine disrupted, so is your cats.  Find out how to help cat owners keep things on an even keel.

 

Lecture 5:    Update on medications in behavioral medicine

In some cases medication, diet and nutraceuticals may be needed to keep households functioning at their best.
