Husbandry Training
for Puppies and Kittens as well as Adult Dogs

Do you want a stress free pet when you visit your vets?

Would you like to be able to trim you dogs nails and brush your cat without a fight?

Many pets go through life in fear of vet visits, dislike the groomers, won't allow owners to touch their paws and in some situations they won't even allow other people to examine them at all.

This makes it extremely difficult when they become sick or are in need of a nail trim or even need a hair cut.

When this level of worry has been reached it's very difficult for an owner to manage them and is equally embarrassing.

However, place yourself in your pet's boots. Your pet will be stressed, upset and may take a good few days to recover from any one of these events. Each time these events occur the pet's behaviour is likely to regress and hissing, scratching and biting may occur.

It doesn't have to be like that.
