Approach to Treatment

Animal Behavior & Healing uses applied behavior analysis techniques to facilitate positive behavior change. This approach towards modifying animal behavior has proven more effective in achieving positive outcomes for companion animals and their owners.

Most companion animal trainers know that the use of positive reinforcement and behavior modification are the best ways to change behavior. When using applied behavior change techniques, a functional behavior assessment or analysis is performed before a behavior intervention plan is devised. The reason? The literature supports this approach, demonstrating that functional assessment and analysis leads to more effective behavior change solutions.

Many common behavior problems may be treated successfully.
