Behaviour Training

Pittwater Animal Hospital is very interested in helping with your pet’s behaviour. Behavioural advice can significantly increase the enjoyment you have in owning a pet and result in a happier pet. 

At Pittwater Animal Hospital we offer one-on-one behaviour training for you and your dog in a quiet, dedicated space, (our puppy school room). Sessions are run by our delta-trainer and puppy school teacher Louise Colombari.

Louise works through the best ways to communicate with your dog. You practice with her in the room free of distractions. Your individual issues can be problem solved. Improving behaviour issues is often done with a combination of environmental change, enrichment activities, distraction and positive reinforcement. We try to help your dog do the things you want them to do and avoid the things you don’t want. 

Louise will also do house calls within the Northern Beaches to run behaviour sessions. Behaviour is very closely related to the environment a dog lives in. A house call with Louise can be invaluable to adjust your dogs environment so it’s behaviour can be more settled.
