At the recent 2021 Atlantic Coast Veterinary Conference (ACVC), Christopher Pachel, DVM, DACVB, CABC, sat down with dvm360® to offer personal anecdotes on how he helps clients ask the 'right' questions to better correct the problem behavior their pets are displaying.

Christopher Pachel, DVM, DACVB, CABC: Most of my clients are coming in with a problem behavior they want to see stopped, or something they want to see less of—and I get it. I understand that is where they are coming from with their perspective...and yet, if I simply jump in and try to answer [their question] we could stop that particular behavior—as a practitioner...[I] tend to shift my brain over to a more of a corrective or punitive sort of intervention—and we know that's actually not the most effective way to approach that.
