Help for Dog Owners with Problem Behaviors is Just a Click Away

July 2, 2010

Here are three great resources I was recently referred to that seem to have the right approach to dealing with problem behaviors in dogs (and other pets, as well).

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has a Virtual Pet Behaviorist that offers a searchable database of bad behaviors and possible solutions on how to deal with them at

The Certification Council for Professional Dog Trainers offers help on teaching basic obedience skills at They also have referrals to licensed classes and puppy trainers in all 50 states.

A site run by a group of veterinarians, biologists and animal behaviorists www. can give you expert advice on your problems. The members all have at least a master’s degree in their field and are said to specialize in dealing with “tricky behaviors” and hard to solve issues.
