At Vets on Parker we know that life is better with a happy pet. However, keeping them healthy is not our only job, our loved family pets need to be well behaved too!

We know that owning a pet can come with some challenges and we have the experience and resources to help you manage them. Whether you have a puppy that jumps on young family members, a dog reactive terrier, a poodle that pulls on the lead, a cute kitten that plays too rough or an older cat that has stopped using the litter tray, we are here to help!

Our team members will chat and listen to you and provide you with some great advice to help manage the behavioural problem you are facing. In some circumstances, we may direct you to an external dog training or veterinary behaviourist. These professionals will often come out and visit your home and provide you with a training plan.

Do you have a new puppy? You should join up to Puppy School!
