Sources for Dog Behavior and Training Information

How do I stop my puppy from biting? What types of chew toys are good for this breed? Will my dog try to mark his or her territory? What do I do about my dog jumping on people? How do I begin to housebreak my pet? Is crate training a good idea…?

These are just a few of the questions that may arise with a new puppy. The following is a list of resources and animal behaviorists in Okemos that will help you with common training scenarios as well as specific questions or concerns.
