At All Fur Fun we believe that good dog owners are educated dog owners. While in class we strive to provide you with as much information founded in science as well as from our own experiences. But sometimes a little backup is needed. Here we have provided you with links and documents that round out the ideas and methods we use in class and with you and your dog. Also you can find links to articles on dog nutrition, puppy care, and health.

They also have to be a member in good standing of the American College of Veterinary Behaviorists.
A Certified Applied Animal Behaviorist has a PhD in a behavior-related field, has a specified number of academic credits in various fields related to behavior, has submitted case reports that passed a review, is a member in good standing of the Animal Behavior Society, and abides by a code of ethics.
