To love and care for a senior dog is an extra special privilege. We help owners provide their grey-muzzled friends with the support they need to feel safe, loved, and fulfilled throughout their golden years. Because they deserve nothing less.
The behavioral needs of our dogs will naturally change as they age into their senior years. Our canine behavior experts help you focus on a few key areas especially important to the happiness and wellbeing of senior dogs:
Age-Appropriate Daily Routines. Senior dogs may require more frequent bathroom breaks, quieter/comfier resting places, less time spent alone, adjusted social experiences with people and other dogs, and more. We help you design a daily routine that allows your senior dog to navigate peacefully and happily through everyday life.
Age-Appropriate Exercise & Cognitive Stimulation. As dogs age, their physical and mental abilities change. With input from your veterinarian, we help you provide age-appropriate exercise and cognitive enrichment to keep your senior dog’s brain and body feeling good.
Behavior Therapy for Senior Dogs. Sometimes, our senior dogs can develop age-related behavior issues such as separation anxiety, handling sensitivities, cognitive dysfunction, and more. Your veterinarian or veterinary behaviorist will often play an important role in such cases; we work alongside them to provide supportive behavior therapy.
The first step is booking a 60-minute kickoff consultation to start working toward your goals for your senior dog.
