March - April
Have you recently adopted a new animal? Whether introducing two animals of the same species or becoming a multi-species household it's important your animals get off on the right foot.
Contact us for information about pet introductions.
For those planning in advance to introduce a new animal to the household we offer a one hour consult where we will suggest proper management techniques and advice to ensure the safety of your animals. After the consult you should have a plan in place for initial introductions as well as ongoing reinforcement to not only safely introduce your new companion but to increase the odds of a successful, happy relationship between your new and current pets.
Please note that we do not recommend all animals co-habitate, there are certain species, commonly predator-prey interactions, and certain individual animals where we do not recommend introductions. Whenever possible we will inform you in advance if this is not a recommended pairing however there are times when information becomes available during a consult, in those situations we will provide a written recommendation that two animals not be housed together.
One hour consult $60, in person or via skype.
If you are located outside of the GTA a travel fee will be required for any in person consults, please contact us for a quote.
