We are a behavior specialty practice located in Virginia. Similar to psychiatry and behavioral therapy in humans, our practice focuses on the mental and emotional well-being of our patients. Our purpose is to screen companion animals for significant behavioral disorders, diagnose them, and develop treatment plans to assist in their rehabilitation.

We can treat:

  • General anxiety

  • Fearfulness, hiding, and anti-social behavior

  • Aggression towards:

    • Strangers​

    • Family members

    • Children

    • Other dogs

    • Wildlife

    • Moving objects

  • Distress during veterinary procedures

  • Mouthing and nipping

  • High energy/difficulty relaxing

  • Destructive behaviors

  • Inappropriate urination and defecation

  • Self-mutilation, barbering

  • Obsessive behaviors like chasing lights

As a team of veterinary behavior professionals, we take a truly holistic approach. We determine if the pet is physically healthy, has appropriate structure and benevolent leadership, adequate enrichment, and truly understands what is expect of them. Only then do we determine if there is an underlying behavior disorder.
