Animal Training and Behavior

Having a pet can be a rewarding experience, but negative behaviors can make ownership difficult at times. Regardless of your pets age, if it is beginning to show signs of negative behavior, there is a reason. We recommend and encourage positive reinforcement training to help your pet be happy, healthy and balanced. If your pet is showing signs of aggression, fear, or anxiety due to a life change or disruption in routine, please take  a moment to learn the different methods that can be used to help your pet regain confidence and end the negative behavior.  



Animal Welfare - Report Animal Cruelty

Every state has animal cruelty laws. Animal abuse ends with enforcement of laws. If you believe you have witnessed animal abuse or know of an abusive situation, it is your obligation to report the abuse. The first step is to find out who is responsible for investigating and enforcing the anti-cruelty codes in your

town, county and/or state. These people typically work for your local humane organization, animal control agency, government funded animal shelter or police precinct. If you run into trouble finding the correct agency to contact, call your local police department. We have provided resources and links to assist you in identifying and reporting animal abuse.
