The human-animal bond plays a vital role in the relationship between you and your pet. It begins forming the moment you introduce a pet into your home, heart and life. It is forged through each interaction you share with them. Nothing damages this bond more than behavior issues, which leave owners feeling frustrated and angry. We believe that appropriate socialization and obedience training is vital to building a bond with your dog. A trainer can help prevent behavior problems before they even start.
One of our certified veterinary technicians, Michelle, has taken a special interest in learning the art of dog behavior. She has a passion for helping humans and dogs build the best relationships. Her training classes take place right in our lobby and are offered for puppies, adult dogs and everyone in between. If you have concerns about behavior at home, Michelle also offers private, in-home consults. She can work with the Heritage team to develop the best plan for concerning behaviors.
