Behavioral problems in pets are common and can lead to frustration, a weakening of the human-pet bond, and a loss of quality of life for both the people and animals involved. Studies show that behavioral problems are the most frequently cited cause for surrender of pets to animal shelters. However, relinquishment of ownership is not the only solution, and most behavior problems can be corrected or, at least improved.
