At Mooikloof EduPet, our team has many years of experience of dealing with dogs and cats with behaviour disorders such as anxiety, hyperactivity, aggression, soiling in the house, obsessive behaviour and excessive barking. Each pet has a different set of circumstances we take into account when offering a solution. The first step is to do a thorough assessment, and then a management plan can be crafted for you and your pet. We are here to guide and support you throughout the process.

We employ a wide range of treatment modalities – including manipulation of the pet’s environment, psychological methods (behaviour modification), clicker training, and medication when necessary. When offering a solution, we take into account the client’s situation and capabilities in order to help construct a personalised treatment plan.
