Blue Ribbon Pets believes in the key foundations of behavior wellness, physical wellness, and emotional wellness. If any of these are out of balance, a dog can have trouble socializing, behaving, and staying happy and healthy. If your dog is experiencing trouble in any of these areas, our experts will figure out why and guide them down the right path to wellness stability.
For example, your dog may experience these issues out of fear, pain, or emotional trauma. If you want to know why your dog barks often, there must be an emotional need for them to bark. If you are concerned about your dog not letting you touch his or her ears, maybe they have an ear infection, and it hurts them. You may also be worried about why your dog lunges at other dogs in your neighborhood. This could be a fight or flight response they have out of fear or social anxiety. Overall, this kind of continued education and behavior training helps both owners and your dog work through these issues and leave feeling better than ever before. We conduct our behavior training on site in Ukiah, CA, or via Zoom. Contact us to request an appointment.
