Dog Behavior

The HOV behavior department is tasked with reducing the physical, mental, and environmental stressors for our animals in residence.  In an effort to accomplish this, we rely heavily on experienced staff and experienced volunteers to provide daily enrichment to both the cat and dog departments. A sampling of our training and behavior videos are showcased below.
