Services for Pet Owners: Behavior Consulting


If you need in-person help with your pet’s behavior problem, first consult with your veterinarian. Your pet’s behavior change may have a medical cause.

We are scheduling individual appointments to help pet owners with their pets’ behavior problems on a case by case basis. Please email us at Info@AnimalBehaviorAssociates.com or call 303-932-9095 and our assistant will evaluate your case and determine our availability.

Please NOTE: We cannot provide free advice via email or by telephone.

Pet Professionals who provide behavior and training services can now further their education by joining our Behavior Education Network (BEN). The Behavior Education Network is a trusted source for online science based education about pet behavior and training. Member benefits include monthly Member Only webinars, access to hundreds of articles, discounts on our products and many more! Join today for about the cost of a dinner out each month!

Additional webinar courses can be found at PetProWebinars.com

Pet owners can find self-help products for many behavior and training issues here at Animal Behavior Associates under Products for Pet Owners, as well as at HelpingFido.com and HelpingKitty.com. Informative articles are available on Our Blog and at SensibleDogTraining.com

To regularly receive articles and up to date information about timely pet behavior and training topics, you’ll want to subscribe to our newsletter.

If you need help with your pet’s behavior problem, first consult with your veterinarian. The problem may have a medical cause. If your pet doesn’t have a medical problem, your veterinarian may be able to refer you to a competent behavioral professional who can help with the problem.

To find a Colorado veterinarian with a special interest in animal behavior, go to the Colorado Veterinary Medical Association website www.colovma.org. Click on “Find a Veterinarian.” On that page click on “Click here for a more detailed search.” On that page go to “Medical Discipline,” scroll to “Animal Behavior,” highlight it, then click the search button. Note that not all the veterinarians listed offer individual consultations for pet behavior problems.

You should also know that the field of dog training and pet behavior consulting are not regulated by any government entity. Consequently, anyone can use any professional title they choose (however veterinarians can use the term “behavior specialist only if they are board certified). We strongly encourage you to read our article “ Guidelines for Choosing a Dog Trainer or Behavior Consultant so you are better prepared to find the most qualified person to help you.
