It is difficult for us to transition to a lifestyle of containment. We may feel stressed, bored, or anxious. Guess what? Your dog feels the same way! Just as we develop coping mechanisms for these tough times, we have to help our dogs develop ways to cope with the disruption to their regular schedule and manage their feelings of boredom and anxiety. At Behavior Vets, we are offering virtual services to help owners learn how to use this period of social distancing and isolation to bring out the best in their dog!

In this webinar, you'll learn:

  • How to integrate exercise, enrichment, and training into your daily routine so your dog is left feeling content and relaxed at the end of the day.
  • How to get the most out of your time with your dog.
  • How to address attention-seeking behaviors effectively.
  • When you may need professional help.
