Animal Behavior Advice Lines

Our behavior advice lines are answered by staff and volunteers who are knowledgeable about dog, cat, and small companion animal behavior. These behavior specialists will try to solve your pet’s issues, whether your kitty is “thinking outside the (litter) box” or your pet has problems of aggression. Occasionally, we’ll ask you to come in for a consult, and sometimes we’ll visit you and your best friend at your home.
