Animal Behaviour and Needs

Having a pet at home has so many benefits, but it’s always a two-way deal. You need to provide for your pet’s basic needs and make sure they’re leading a happy, healthy life in your care.

Listening to your pet

Our furry and feathery friends might not be able to speak to us, but they’re often very good at communicating what they want. Cat headbutts are a common way of getting a good ear scratch, and puppy dog eyes usually have a reason. Understanding how your pet communicates with you bonds you together and helps to create a pawsome relationship.

Listening to your pet

Sometimes having a furry companion just doesn’t work out the way you planned, and RSPCA Victoria is here to help. Our priority is to have happy pets in happy homes, so get in touch if you’re reaching the end of your leash.

Training Your pack

Training your pet is crucial for a harmonious home. Pets feel secure within the pack when they know what’s expected of them. They want to reach ‘good boy’ status, get all the cuddles and make you proud, but they can’t do that without your guidance.

Keeping pets entertained

Pets left alone for large parts of the day are going to get bored. There are so many ways to keep their lives interesting until you walk through the door, from fun ideas to spice up their environment, to feel-good products from our online store.
