As a community resource, the AWLA offers a variety of assistance for all pet owners. Regardless of how your companion animal entered your life (adopted, purchased or wandered), AWLA staff members are happy to help you understand pet behaviors and resolve potential pet-related challenges.
Inquiries commonly fielded by AWLA professionals include:
Unwanted cat behaviors: furniture scratching, marking, not using the litterbox and aggression toward other pets and/or people
Unwanted dog behaviors: excessive barking, separation anxiety, housetraining problems, hyperactivity and aggression toward other pets and/or people.
Questions regarding other pets: introducing new pets into the home, appropriate care and housing for small animals (such as rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and others) and providing environmental enrichment for less-common animal companions.
