Behaviour Services

Preparing for the future

We have a team of experienced behaviourists who make sure that when our animals head off to new homes they’re prepared for the future. We’re a leading charity in the animal behaviour field which means we have a very low percentage of pets returned to us once they’ve been rehomed.

New arrivals

When a pet comes to us, we look at lots of things, including their temperament, ability to be left alone, behaviour with other animals and relationships with people.

We provide ongoing assessment of the pets in our care and, if needed, rehabilitation. We do everything we can to make sure that we rehome our pets successfully the first time around.

After rehoming

Once the pet has been rehomed the help doesn’t stop there. Our team provide advice and support to new owners for the lifetime of that animal, which helps to build strong, happy relationships.

Need advice about your Blue Cross pet?

If you have adopted a pet from one of our rehoming centres and need some behaviour support please contact the rehoming centre you got your pet from or take a look at our pet advice for further reading. 

Pet advice videos

Presented by members of our Behaviour and Rehoming Teams, we've made a number of advice videos to guide you through the most popular issues pet owners face.
