Reward based training is the recommended method of training by the American Society of Veterinary Behaviorists (AVSAB) and recommended by CHA Animal Shelter. Training should be fun for you and your dog and is a great way to form a relationship with your newly adopted pet.
The Ohio State University’s Veterinary Medical Center employs several different veterinarians that specialize in behavior. These veterinarians are able to write prescriptions, conduct blood tests, and do physical exams that may lead to findings associated with your dog’s behavior. For severe problems including, but not limited to, anxiety or aggression, contacting these specialists may be the most appropriate option.
