Behavior Training

Dog and Cat Behavior and Dog Training at Home
Dogs and cats can have behavior problems that can be both difficult to understand and difficult to treat. To help with these issues Dr. Sidorsky can recommend professional behaviorists and trainers. Copied below is information about two specific professionals.

Dog and Cat Behavior
Animal Alliances believes that changes in behavior are accomplished best using positive methods. We help your pet learn by rewarding the good behaviors that we want to see, rather than punishing those we may not like. Behaviors that are rewarded will always increase in frequency — this is simply how animals learn. The positive training and behavior modification techniques that we use are based on the science of how animals learn and have proven to be extremely effective — whether teaching your dog a simple behavior like sit or dealing with a serious behavior problem such as aggression.

Jim Helms Dog Pals Dog Trainer:
