Behavior

If it feels like your pets don’t listen or mind the rules, don’t worry! There’s a science behind animal behavior, and we can help you!

Treatable behaviors at Saint Francis:

  • Aggression

Remember, not all dogs or animals respond in the same ways. We’ll work with you according to best practices but sometimes, on occasion, we’ll encounter a truly special case that requires the help of a specialist. In those cases, we can refer you to a Board Certified Behaviorist for advanced help. There aren’t many specialists in this area, but we do know a few at partner hospitals and they work closely with us on complicated cases.
