Dogs:

  • Adam K´s Dog Training & Dog Behavior Forum — A friend had this to say about this forum: "The best advice regarding dog-handling I can give is to frequent [this] forum often and read the posts. It's for dog trainers and people having problems with their dogs. It's a great resource just to read it and see what common problems come up with both 'used' dogs and 'new' ones, and how to solve them. I read it every day, and almost always learn something useful."

  • Auntie Donna's Dog care and training tips — After 45 years of working with dogs and observing common mistakes made by dog owners and trainers, Donna finally decided to share her understanding of dog behavior. Most dog owners will find some useful information here.

  • Devil Dog Ranch — A Los Angeles-based organization dedicated to solving problem behaviors via obedience training. Specifically, Devil Dog Ranch offers: Motivational Training, Private In-Home Sessions, Puppy A-Z, Basic Manners, Troubleshooting and Consultations. If you live in Southern California, be sure to check them out.

  • Dogproblems.com — The same friend who recommended the forum above has this to say about Dogproblems.com: "I also recommend Adam Katz's e-book 'Secrets of a Professional Dog Trainer' very highly. Adam is the owner of the forum [above]. You can find info about the book at [here] . It's by far the best book I've ever read on dog-training. It's the first book I've seen that shows you how dogs see the world, and how you can communicate to them what you want them to do and motivate them to do it."

  • Glendale Humane Society (Glendale, California) — For almost 80 years, the GHS has worked to find safe, loving homes for unwanted dogs and cats. They are a No-Kill facility and care for their animals until good homes are found. If you have some free time, please consider volunteering as a Dog Walker/Socializer and/or Cat Socializer.

Fish:

  • Fish-School.com: Train your pet fish to do amazing tricks! — Fish School employs two techniques long used to train animals - positive reinforcement and shaping. The basic idea is to reinforce successive, increasingly accurate approximations of a desired behavior. In training an animal to press a lever, for example, simply turning toward the lever will be reinforced at first. Then, only turning and stepping toward it will be reinforced. As training progresses, the response reinforced becomes progressively more like the desired behavior.
