Behaviour

 Maxine Wells RVN Dip CABT

Does your dog or cat have any behaviour problems? If so, Maxine Wells is here to help.
 
 

Maxine qualified as a veterinary nurse in 2004, and holds the Advanced Diploma in Companion Animal Behaviour and Training (COAPE). She has over 14 years’ experience working with problem companion animals, and successfully runs behaviour clinics here at Alfreton Park Veterinary Hospital.

Maxine can help with any of these problems, as well as other problems not specifically mentioned.

Dogs:

  • Nervousness
  • Fears and phobias
  • Food guarding
  • Coprophagia (eating faeces)
  • Indoor marking/soiling
  • Excessive barking
  • Chewing
  • Agoaphobia (fear of open spaces)
  • Chasing behaviours

Cats:

  • Indoor marking/soiling
  • Scratching furniture
  • Over-grooming
  • Aggression
  • Nervousness
  • Fears and phobias


Maxine can also help with other training methods (including clicker training) and puppy training classes.

She also take referrals from other veterinary practices.

In some cases, home visits would be beneficial to assess your animal in their own environment, but generally Maxine holds consultations at the practice.

Senior Pets

Senior Pets

Did you know that, as dogs and cats are living longer, they are more likely to develop senile problems, just like in people? Sadly many owners aren't aware of this, and think it's just 'old age'. Find out more by clicking on the photo above
