Friendship Behavior Specialists


Friendship Behavior Specialists provides a caring and supportive space for clients and patients to manage behavior concerns. Concerns can range from fear, anxiety, stress, aggression, eliminating outside a litter box, to having difficulties getting along with animal and human family members. Each behavior client has a different story to tell and we are here to provide guidance during these difficult conversations

The Friendship Behavior Specialists team works closely with your pet’s primary care and specialty veterinarians to rule out medical causes of behavior concerns. We partner with positive reinforcement trainers to support our families through training and behavior modification. This collaboration provides the highest level of care for your pet.
