Are you struggling with your dog’s behavior? Did you adopt a new puppy and want to help them adjust? The MSPCA-Angell’s Behavior service offers expert methods designed to be friendly to dogs and help you help them overcome behavior and training issues. Our efficient and result-oriented training programs for all life stages can help you achieve the communication and leadership skills you desire with your furry friend.
Behavior appointments are available Monday through Friday, with Terri Bright, Ph.D., BCBA-D, CAAB, holding appointments on Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays, and Jocelyn Strassel, M.S., CVT, seeing appointments Monday through Thursday. Allyson Salzer, Ph.D., BCBA-D, holds appointments only at the Angell West location in Waltham. We look forward to helping you!
Behavior consultations for cats and dogs are available either in person or via video conference.
NEW! We now have specialized private training for dog-reactive dogs with our certified trainers.
A REMINDER FOR PUPPY OWNERS: All puppies should be carefully socialized in a group class before they are 20 weeks old with an experienced instructor, not at dog parks or daycare! Puppy and all dog training/classes (the Nosework class is great for seniors looking for hobbies) can be seen at mspca.org/dogtraining.
Following consultation, clients receive a detailed plan for their pet to modify behavior, and each consultation includes four months of email and phone follow-up to see how their pet is doing following the consultation.
Positive-based behavior modification treatment plans for issues such as:
Aggression towards people and/or other animals
House soiling and marking
Situational anxiety (car rides, slippery floors, vet visits)
New baby acclimation
