Canine & Feline Behavioral Assistance
Behavior issues are a common reason for owners surrendering their pets. Even the best pet may exhibit some less than desirable behaviors. The ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) has a website created by a nationally recognized team of animal behaviorists - The Virtual Behaviorist. Follow this link below to find ideas and suggestions for handling most of the common issues pet owners experience - http://www.aspcabehavior.org/

If you are experiencing a behavioral issue with an adopted dog, need support, or have behavioral questions please contact our Canine Coordinator, Lisa Forbes, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-352-9011 x144.
*For other animal behavior issues :
For Canine behavior issues: Most unruly behavior can be significantly reduced through obedience training. We offer the largest selection of Puppy and Basic training classes in the area. These classes are taught by experienced trainers and teachers who are here to help you with your canine companion. For puppies under 16 weeks old, we recommend immediate enrollment in our Puppy Kindergarten class. This class helps owners appropriately train and manage their puppies to develop into well-socialized and well-trained companions.
Adolescent dogs without any training can have a wide-assortment of issues. For general training and management, we recommend our basic training class Everyday Canine Essentials. This group class helps you learn to train your dog to sit, down, wait and manage some problem behaviors you may be experiencing.
For owners experiencing more serious behavior issues such as aggression towards people and other dogs, severe anxiety, resource-guarding, and other problematic behaviors, a private consultation will be most-likely recommended. Contact us at email@example.com or contact the MHS Training Center 603-352-9011 x206 for more information.
For general animal behavior issues contact our Behavior Hotline at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will respond to your email within a week.
Our primary goal here at MHS is to keep animals in their homes. For dogs, training and behavioral support helps us do this.
