any expert with an actual PHD in animal behaviour, ie those qualified to speak about it, would disagree. Most people out there who say they are trainers or behaviourists have very little if no actual education in dog behaviour. Im not sure how it isnt helpful to post links to qualified and respected behaviourists?

I live near D.C. :/ I have a clinic near here called "Kindness Animal Hospital". There's 3 animal hospitals near me. I just remember this one.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

I'm glad to hear he seems to be calming down a bit, at least for awhile. My hope is that he is only acting out because of all the medical stuff he has had to endure and will come out of it soon.

In Fresno, Banifield is part of PetSmart. FYI...

I hope my Petsmart has that. I think they do, I remember a "Ban" then something else. They do check ups.

I'm in OR. Have lived in NY, NC, MN, and Iowa. I've always found Banfield attached to PetSmart. ^_^

tpoc - I'm hoping that's what it is too. I'm hoping that it's a mix between the surgery and everything that went with it and false puberty.


starr - It is not helpful because of how you are coming across. You are doing it in a rather attacking manner. How people feel on the subject is still split and there are still experts who say the method I use works. It will always be a split subject. Some will always say it works while others will say that it doesn't. That's just the way of most things. My methods work for me and always have. If you wish to not understand that, that is your right.

That would be it. ^_^ They do more than checkups. If you want to be sure, you can always go in and talk to them about their services. They tend to be friendly and helpful in my experience. With my wellness plan, he gets so many check-ups at no cost.

That's great! :D I could go there. They certainly care about dogs more than fish.

I really like them. They have just 1 vet on staff that I don't like so I make sure Fenris sees one of the others.
