Managing Problem Behaviors

Behavioral problems with companion animals are one of the most significant reasons why animals become strays or are relinquished by owners.  The good news is that nearly all behavior problems are manageable given good advice, and, if the problem can be managed, then it is less likely that the animal will become homeless and unwanted.  Please check the following links for advice on many of the most common behavioral problems that pet owners encounter.
