Nothing in Life is Free
following pages are devoted to human/canine relationships. They
include my thoughts on training and behavior and the methods and
techniques I have used to treat dog behavior problems.
My hope is that you'll read what's in these pages and be inspired to get a professional evaluation or enroll in group class.
The very first step is a physical exam. Don't even think about treating behavior problems without it.
I am not including information on topics such as housetraining and basic obedience (sit, stay, down, etc.) because there are already a multitude of excellent sites on the internet that cover these topics.
I am always open to comments, suggestions, link referrals or anything else you have to say.
Thanks for stopping by :)
