Awwdorable Pets Resource Library, Media Center, and Store
We couldn’t be happier to offer our customers training and behavior resources to support building stronger, positive bonds with our individual fur family members! At Awwdorable Pets, we believe that learning is an ongoing process that starts with love and compassion. It’s at the core of what we are about. We care that your pets are well-loved and protected while under our care and we make it part of our work to continually learn, share, adapt, adopt, and refresh skills.
One thing that I love about working with my customers and their pets, is that I’m always learning from them about their relationship with their pets. It’s crucial to providing a consistent flow in their lives while the pet parent is traveling or at work or simply wanting more reinforcement of positive behaviors.Julia Moreno Perri

Board Certified Veterinary Behaviorist
“Veterinary Behaviorists have achieved board-certification in the specialty of Veterinary Behavior. Board-certified specialists are known as Diplomates. These veterinarians work with individual pet owners, other animal professionals, and facilities that care for animals in order to manage behavior problems and improve the well-being of animals. Behavioral problems can result from a neurochemical imbalance, a medical condition, learned fearful associations, or conflict over rules and social structure. A Veterinary Behaviorist is in a unique position to diagnose medical conditions that can affect a pet’s behavior, as well as treat conditions that are purely behavioral.
Specialists in veterinary behavioral medicine have both the medical and behavioral knowledge to evaluate cases to determine if there is a medical component. Additionally, specialists determine which medication(s), if any, would be most appropriate as part of an integrated treatment program that includes behavioral modification plans appropriate to the individual patient. Specialists in veterinary behavioral medicine have the skills and knowledge to take detailed behavioral and medical histories, weed out irrelevant information, and base the treatment plan on pertinent behavioral and medical information. This ability to take a good history and to ascertain relevant facts is essential and is often overlooked as a necessary skill when working with behavior problems.” (From the American College of Veterinary Behaviorist website)
