Welcome to Pet Behavior a web site designed by veterinarians to personally help your dog or cat with behavior problems.


Our staff consists of animal behavior consultants who are veterinarians or animal psychologists including Dr. Amy Marder. We all work together to design unique behavioral therapy programs for each animal. Everyone here has advanced degrees (Ph.D.,.. Masters) and years of experience working with all kinds of animal behavior problems. Many of our staff members are considered to be the top veterinary behaviorists in the country. We often teach at veterinary schools, lecture to veterinarians, and have written or contributed to several veterinary textbooks. In addition to helping owned animals in peopleís homes, we have also used our expertise to help animals without homes through working with several national humane organizations.  

Animal behavior problems are common and one of the biggest reasons that people give up their animals or treat them harshly. By treating behavior problems we can enhance the relationship between a person and their companion animal and prevent further damage. The web enables us to help people that do not have access to veterinary behaviorists. For people who are not able to use the web, we also provide the same services by fax and telephone. Of course we would rather fly to every one of you to help you, but unfortunately that would be impossible. 

We do the same things on the web and by phone for you and your pet that we do in our offices or your home visit "House Calls". First we get a very thorough behavioral and medical history. We provide a behavioral history form which we ask you to carefully complete. If possible, we would like your pet's medical records either e_mail, faxed or sent to us. After we receive all of the necessary information, one of our veterinary behaviorists will provide you with: a diagnosis and explanation of your pet's behavior problem, a personalized treatment plan, and handouts to help you implement the program. If drug therapy is recommended we or we will be contacting your veterinarian to prescribe the specific medication. If dog training is part of your program, we will work with a trainer in your area. Photographs or a 10-15 minute videotape of your pet’s misbehavior in action are helpful (but not required). Follow-ups are done either by e_mail or by phone.

REMEMBER: Your pet loves you no matter what you do or who you are.
