Domestic Pets

Sunny has offered assistance to hundreds of perplexed pet owners through her private consultation services, Manners for Mutts & Kits. Get more information regarding these services here.

She makes house calls and evaluates the underlying dynamics of pet/family conflicts. By assisting pet owners in understanding and dealing with problematic pet behaviors, many pets remain in homes that may have been abandoned when their people felt overwhelmed, frustrated, and confused.

Through customized evaluations, Sunny recommends practical and easy-to-follow behavioral modification remedies so that harmony can flow in every household.
