From the Dog Division
Behaviour consulting is a relatively new field in the world of animal behaviour. Behaviour consultants help animals in a very holistic way, taking into account the environment within which they live and learn, the people and other animals they interact with and the needs of their caretakers. If you are interested in the field of behaviour consulting, there are a number of skills and interests you will need to foster, as well as a drive to continue your education beyond the basics of training animals.

From the Cat Division
Who would still ask if cats grieve? That emotion, however a cat’s experience is seen through our poor human lens, is one where accusations of anthropomorphizing can be just wrong.
Clients plead, “I just want to know what my cat is going through. What can I do?” Good question. We still don’t know much.
