Welcome to Modern Animal Behavior. As a wife and mother of two wonderful girls and a house full of fur babies, I know everyone’s time is precious. It is my goal to be your one stop shop for the most up to date and current information regarding your pet’s health and behavior. We’ll tackle some of the more common questions about why your pets do what they do, and I’ll also throw in some amazing stories about the unique and awesome behaviors found all around the animal kingdom. So sit back, relax, and dive right it!

Additionally, if you have specific questions regarding your pet we can help with that too.

Dogs have been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember. When there are dog behavior problems in the home it can affect the entire family. It is my goal to repair that bond and support a healthy, happy, and loving relationship with your dog and the rest of your family. My experience in veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, academia, house visits, and virtual meetings provide me with a wealth of experience to ensure the best chance for success.

The love of a cat is unrivaled and it is my goal to help that relationship grow and be nourished in a loving and supportive manner. I will provide a research and experience supported analysis of any behavioral issues you are experiencing with your feline family member along with a recommended plan to guide you on the path to a successful, nurturing relationship.

“I used Genevieve with Modern Animal Behavior to help me with my ‘nervous dog’. Genevieve was patient, kind, and loving towards both of us. She showed me how to help my fur baby and helped me to realize that I needed to be trained as much as my dog. I would highly recommend her.”
