Welcome to Wellbehave



Welcome to WellBehave. This site is aimed at both pet owners and pet Professionals giving up to-date advice for the welfare of your pet. Our goal is to provide you with useful information about our behaviour services making it easier to provide you with all the help and support needed to change the unwanted nature of your pets behaviour.

Whilst we all hope to have a happy and mutually fulfilling relationship with our pets things can go wrong. This may be because of a misunderstanding of a pets natural behaviour and can lead to a breakdown of the relationship - which invariably causes stress and unhappiness for both the pet and the owner. Recent studies have shown that one of the primary reasons an animal is left at a shelter, such as the RSPCA, is due to unwanted behaviour. It is also one of the more common reasons animals are euthanized.

 Fortunately we can help you to understand these problems and give you adequate tools to deal with or manage the situation. All consultations, either a home visit, at the veterinary surgery or over the telephone are dealt with individually with a personalized behaviour modification program to fit your lifestyle and suit your way of life.

At WellBehave we look forward to helping and supporting you whilst your companion animal is learning to behave.

FELINE SCRATCHING

Posted on Friday, February 17, 2012 @ 20:05:38 GMT in All about Cats
by judy

Cats scratch upright objects for claw maintenance by pulling off the exterior layer of nail, and also as a form of territorial marking. This type of marking behaviour provides both a visual and pheromone (scented) signal. Occasionally, scratching behaviour can be direct on horizontal surfaces. However, this normal behaviour becomes a problem for some owners when walls, furniture and carpets are destroyed.

Redirected Aggression

Posted on Friday, February 17, 2012 @ 19:56:30 GMT in All about Dogs
by judy

In redirected aggression, the dog becomes aggressively aroused by an individual or target other than the person that it attacks. Initially, the aggression is directed towards the individual or target that caused the aggression, but rapidly this switches to the person exerting control or attempting to punish the dog.
