Behavioral Help

Is your pet exhibiting negative behavior? You are not alone. Nearly every pet owner has experienced difficult behavior from a pet. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) has an extensive library of pet-care tips for cats and dogs, as well as horses and small animals. In addition, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) has published its Pets for Life Behavior Series. Below you’ll find several links from both organizations, to assist in enhancing your relationship with your four-legged companion. For more behavior-help suggestions, visit either of the sites above.
