PET BEHAVIOR
Pet Training for All Pets When the bond between the owner and pet is not strong, the pet is not considered part of the family, and the pet is surrendered to us. You don't hear people say, "Well, we are leaving the children behind because they really don't listen and never pick up their rooms, and we don't want them messing up our new place." But this is their train of thought when it comes to their pets. The success of any adoption can be measured by many outcomes. These factors may include the environment and quality of life the new family gives the animal and most importantly if the adoptee has found a loving, safe home where the animal can be a "Pet For Life."

The structure of any training or behavior programs emphasizes the perspective that most problem behavior is actually normal behavior occurring in ways or contexts that are unacceptable to an owner.

Here are some resources:
