Animal Behavior Advice Lines

Our behavior advice lines are staffed by behavior specialists who’ll help you try to solve your pet’s issues, whether your kitty is “thinking outside the (litter) box” or your dog is struggling with an addiction (to counter surfing). Occasionally, we’ll ask you to come in for a consult, and sometimes we’ll visit you and your best friend at your home.
