Animal Behavior Helpline

If you are experiencing behavior issues with the cat or dog you adopted from HOV, call or email our Behavior Helpline to speak with one of our behavior consultant.

Our behavior consultant can help you with a number of behavioral issues, including;
  • House soiling
  • Chewing
  • Scratching
  • Jumping on humans
  • Excessive vocalization
  • Destructible Behaviors
  • Occupying furniture
  • Digging
  • Escaping
  • Separation or Isolation/Anxiety
  • Problems at the Door

We can also coach you in successfully introducing a new pet to your family’s home.

***Behavior issues that put a human’s or pet’s safety in jeopardy cannot be properly diagnosed and resolved by phone or e-mail. Such issues require an in-person behavior evaluation and consultation. Please contact our behavior consultant Ben Donoghue, ben@heartofthevalleyshelter.org, to make an appointment for a consultation.*** Please note, this service is only for cats and dogs who have been adopted from HOV.

Call our Behavior Department at 406-404-3072, e-mail k9behavior@heartofthevalleyshelter.org, or submit the form below.
