Any suggestions?
 
Hi,

I'm a recent board member at our local Humane Society and am trying to educate myself about dog/cat behaviours. All of our volunteers are wonderful and are there to try and help/save the animals, however, we live in a northern town and educated, professional animal trainers/vets/anything! are difficult to come by. I know this will not be a replacement for formal schooling, but at least it's a start.

Thanks,
Tara

For cat behaviour, I recommend any of the books by certified animal behaviourist Pam Johnson-Bennett: [url]http://catbehaviorassociates.com/[/url] "Think Like A Cat" and "Twisted Whiskers" would be a good place to start. For overall cat care, [url=http://www.traciehotchner.com/cb/index.htm]The Cat Bible[/url] by Tracie Hotchner is pretty good, and I'm also a big fan of [url=http://www.amazon.com/Your-Cat-Simple-Secrets-Stronger/dp/0312358016]Your Cat: Simple New Secrets to a Longer, Stronger Life[/url], by Dr. Elizabeth Hodgkins.

Perhaps the dog training and cat training forums here will be of some help....

[url=http://www.dogstardaily.com/]Dog Star Daily[/url] is a fantastic site for all things doggy. Check out the "Top Ten" section for a list of good books.
