Behavior Modification

There will inevitably be certain situations within your pet’s environment that will make them fearful or anxious. This can sometimes lead to undesirable behavior, fear or even aggression. The good news is we can help change or alter a negative emotional or physical response that your pet may have towards a certain situation or stimulus.

Behavior issues include:

  • Inappropriate elimination
  • Separation anxiety
  • Under-socialized
  • Fear aggression (towards inanimate objects, people or pets)
  • Excessive barking
  • Excessive jumping
  • Thunderstorm/Firework/Noise phobias
  • Over-reactivity (towards inanimate objects, people or pets)
  • Crate anxiety/training
  • Destructive scratching or chewing
  • Resource guarding
  • Desensitization to Nail Trims
  • Desensitization to Veterinary visits
  • Desensitization to Grooming visits
  • Or, any species specific undesirable behavior

We absolutely LOVE Tipp City Vet! All of the staff are professional and friendly, always happy to see us and my girl, Ollie! I have been bringing Ollie here for care for about 2 years and always had a wonderful experience. They are thorough and make sure you feel at ease about your pet.
About two months ago, we started bringing my girl here for doggy daycare once or twice a week and she loves it! She has a chance to get all her Aussie energy out while I'm at work. She's always so happy when I pick her up!!
My family has also utilized their lodging services several times. You can board your pets separately or together. They offer extra play sessions, bathing, etc. And if you're still worried about your pet, you can text their lodging phone number and they will send you pictures of your pet! Great for nervous Dog Moms like me!
Can't say enough good things!

Anytime we go out of town we keep one of our dogs at the boarding portion of the hospital. She LOVES it. After a couple of stays she has realized how much she loves this place and no longer tries to pull us out the door when we arrive (this in my book is a good sign)! She’s always exhausted when we pick her up, so that reassures me that they take the time to play with her and that she doesn’t have any built up energy she needs to release once home as attention was not given. The staff is amazing and take great care of the animals. Also very reasonable pricing on boarding for what they offer!

Great clean facility, super friendly staff! Dr Joel was really nice, attentive and knowledgeable! Love that they have Sunday hours and that they see small pets like our guinea pig. They took great care of her and were able to get us a Sunday appointment right before closing on Saturday. Would recommend and go back.

The staff and vets are always pleased when I bring our Boston Terrier in. It’s awesome to have them stop and pet her before we even get into our appointment. During the appointment, the Vet (have had 3 different ones) treats her so special and sweet talk her to calm her down (all of them have). They care about how we feel and how she feels! Love it!
