Over 75% of behavior problems are triggered and elicited from a cat or dog’s internal and external environment. When we focus on changing their environment, the cat and dog’s behavior changes. Why look at Google and sift through the myriad of hypothetical conjecture, myths and arm chair experts when you have an expert to hear the facts from, to study your case and to work directly with your exclusive family, dog or cat. Call the behavior and training experts and have us explain the relevant facts, details and nuances that affect your unique situation.
