Comment from Member

...In general, I appreciate the incredible resource that this group and listserv affords me.  In my situation, I am the person that the vets come to for guidance with behavioral issues.  Although I take this charge seriously, I am very well aware of the limitations of my position.  Our average client will not take their behavior issues to the animal behaviorist (cost, inconvenience, etc.) They rely on the veterinarian for diagnosis and me for help with the recommended protocol for behavior modification and training. I do my best to end their frustration and insure that their pets will be the best LIFELONG companion that they can be.  I have built a library of books, pamphlets, videos and various resources to help me but, by and large, this society is my most valuable resource.

Thank you again,
Lisa Berkenstock
