Dog training companies and behavior management experts come by our hospital on a regular basis and want to leave business cards or other advertising materials with us. We rarely accept these offers as it implies endorsement by our hospital when, in fact, we have very little familiarity with most of these groups. We have assembled a list of companies we feel are reputable for simple puppy training classes as well as for solving canine and feline behavior problems. We invite our clients to send testimonials which we may post on our web site so as to assist others in selecting behavior professionals.

Sometimes a behavior problem requires expert intervention. We are fortunate to have a veterinary behaviorist (a veterinarian who specializes in behavior) in our area. Consultation with such an expert is at least an hour and involves follow-up visits. If possible, the entire family as well as the pet should be present for the evaluation as all the dynamics at work must be assessed. Medications as well as exercise and training regimens may be prescribed. For this kind of in-depth problem-solving evaluation, please contact:
Dr. Karen Sueda
Dr. Sueda's resident, Dr. Julie Cho, is also available.
