The importance of understanding the behaviour our pets display
Behaviour in welfare is the need for the opportunity to behave naturally for their species and do the things freedom allows them to do, such as run, dig, jump, play, fly etc. As pet owners, we often think of behaviour in terms of good and bad and the training required to make the difference. But behaviour is so much more than this, it is the way an animal of any kind expresses itself, interacts with others and inhabits its environment. Definitely, where possible, we need to guide an animal to behave in a way it can live in harmony with others, be they animal or human, but we also need to celebrate and enable them to express all the delightful ways our animals are created to be.
