Pet care and behaviour

Help and advice on caring for your pet. From training and basic care, to prevention and treatment of behaviour problems.


Dogs are social animals that need to be part of a family. As guardians we provide basic care, exercise, and training. We need to understand and learn about their behaviour and what they need so we can help them be happy and healthy.

Cats are social animals who need our care. If we understand what they need and their behaviour we can help them be happy and healthy.


Small pets

How to care for small pets and their behaviour is important to know. For example, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, guinea pigs, mice and rats all like to chew and need to chew. They may not like to be picked up. Small pets need special care.
