Behavioral Help & Training Tips

Train your dog, save a tree.
Train your dog, save a tree.

At the Humane Society of Manatee County, we promote the importance of teaching your dog basic obedience in effort to prevent unwanted behavior and keep pets in their homes.  Dogs respond best when taught by a patient, persistent, understanding person. Dogs are not born understanding human language or culture. We invite them into our homes and it is our responsibility to help them understand how to be content in our community.

Since millions of animals are given up each year, many because of behavior problems, the solutions to the most common pet behavior problems and related issues that cause people to give up their pets are contained in the link below. These suggestions can help people address behavioral issues with their pets before they feel the only solution is to relinquish them.
