You’re not alone. Caring for pets can be hard work
It’s natural to turn to the internet for advice, tips and solutions for your pet's behaviour, and maybe try a few things for yourself. However, you can’t believe everything you read. There’s overwhelming evidence to support the use of behaviour medicine and positive reinforcement, and that punishment causes stress and suffering.
We know having a pet with anti-social or destructive behaviour can be frustrating (it’s happened to us too!), but we NEVER recommend spraying, hitting, tapping, grabbing, alpha-rolling, pinching, or yelling at your pet, or using citronella or shock collars.
Punishment only teaches your fur baby to fear you, or to stop the behaviour in your presence (if at all).

To keep your pet and other family members safe
If your pet is showing signs of aggression, do not try to provoke or demonstrate this behaviour. The health and safety of you and your pet are the priority.
Basket muzzles, air muzzles, Elizabethan collars and baby gates can be an ethical and humane way to keep everybody safe until your pet is assessed. Muzzle training - MuzzleUp Project
