Pet Care & Training

The bond between humans and animals is unmistakable. It is a bond, however, that is easily broken by misunderstanding, frustration, and fear when animals display either health or temperament problems. When not clearly understood these problems pose a threat to pets in a number of ways. Pets may be abused, surrendered to shelters, abandoned, given away or sold.

Pet problems are people problems. Our hope is to reduce or even eliminate the problems that cause pets to become unwanted. As most pet owners are well aware, behind every educated pet is a well-trained person.
