Because AMC is committed to ensuring that the human-animal bond remains strong, we have partnered with Dr. Woof, LLC. Owned and operated by Dr. Lindsay Parenti, Dr. Woof offers behavioral assessment, consultation, intervention, and training services to families whose dogs are in need of behavior therapy, behavior modification, or basic obedience training.
Each behavioral case begins with a function-based assessment of issues and other problem behaviors or training deficits. Based on that assessment, a treatment plan is developed and then implemented by the family; this plan can includes home visits and/or phone consultations. The behavior treatment plan is also communicated to your pet's Animal Medical Center veterinarian so that you and your pet are afforded the best opportunity for overall behavioral wellness.
