Aggression, anxiety, and more

Aggression and anxiety in pets can display in many forms. At the Animal Behavior Clinic of AERA, we are well versed in working with all types of anxiety and aggression, from the mildest forms to the most severe. Not only can an anxious or aggressive pet negatively affect your family and home life, but your pet’s quality of life is also impacted  by whatever stress they too are feeling. We want to help foster an incredible relationship with you and your pet and allow for you both to have a fun, happy life together. Some common symptoms of aggression and/or anxiety include reactive behavior like lunging, excessive barking, biting, growling, and fearful behavior such as shaking, trembling, panting, hiding, and whining.
