"Why has my cat suddenly stopped using the litter box?" "Why is my dog barking incessantly?" "Why doesn't my dog or cat listen to me when I ask him to do something?" "How do I get my dog to stop aggressive behavior at the dog park?" These are questions that have entered the minds of pet owners everywhere at one time or another. Also, what does that meow, bark, tweet, or stare mean? I know I fed, pet, and played with Kitty.We pet owners want to know how to communicate effectively with our pets and understand their individual wants and needs.
