Misbehaving or Misunderstood...Dr. Gary Landsberg
Since you are listening to this podcast, you are likely a pet lover. But why did you get a pet in the first place? My guess is because you sought the type of companionship and special form of love and attention that only a pet can give. You probably wanted to laugh at the antics that a crazy furry, feathered, scaled or finned animal can produce.So if pets can be so marvelous, why are so many of them abandoned in vacant lots or relinquished to shelters? The answer is often their inability to meet the owner’s expectations…. behaviors such as excessive barking, inappropriate elimination, hyperactivity or aggression. But is it their fault or ours of not understanding their psyche? Are these pets bad or just misunderstood and in need of some behavioral counseling? No, they don’t need to lie on a couch but sitting next to you while we chat today with Dr. Gary Landsberg, a board certified veterinary behaviorist may be the first step to a happier home for the entire family.
