Here, There and Everywhere
An off-site consultation can be very helpful, however, if you and your dog are having a specific problem there is no substitute for having a professional, in-person evaluation performed. If you're looking for general information there is no shortage of websites and message boards that cover all areas of canine behavior. Don't forget to check out some nutrition sites, too!
To find a qualified trainer or behavior counselor in your area go to the Association of Pet Dog Trainers website and click on "trainer search".
