You and your pet

Let's face it.  You want the bond between you and your pet to be unbreakable.  

But you didn't expect to have to deal with holes chewed in your walls or furniture, urine on your carpet, barking/meowing at odd hours of the day or night or aggressive behavior directed at your friends and family.


Here's the bad news:  these problematic behaviors are often the result of your pet being frustrated, bored or simply confused because they don't understand what we want them to do.


Here's the good news:  simply improving the communication and building a trusting relationship between you and your pet will often solve many of these problems.  


And here's the GREAT news:  Anderson can help you resolve these issues, and it might be simpler than you think.  If you've got a pet with a more complex problem, we can help with that too.
