Studies show that the top reason animals are surrendered to shelters is typically a behavioral problem. Often, simple behavioral issues can spiral out of control to the point that owners become frustrated and feel powerless to improve the situation. Behavioral issues include: barking, aggression, inappropriate elimination, separation anxiety, fear, chewing, digging, begging, disobedience, leach pulling, whining for attention, jumping.
