Behavior and Training Tip Sheets

Behavior and Training Tip Sheet Library

Here are helpful tips and suggestions on how to manage many common pet behavior problems. Please note: the tip sheets offered here do not address issues of serious aggression. If you feel that your pet is aggressive or is showing signs of aggression (more than typical puppy “mouthy” behavior or dog-to-dog squabbles not resulting in serious injuries), please consult with your veterinarian or contact a certified animal behaviorist.
