Dr. Haroush doesn't only look after your pet as a professional, but he sees your pet as one of his own. With his extensive veterinary knowledge and fully-equipped hospital, he is able to give you peace of mind when it comes to your pet. The Animal Health Center really is the best place to take care of your pet's problems. I wouldn't go anywhere else. Unlike large veterinary hospitals that deal with a myriad of pets hastily, this private practice gives you reassurance that your pet will be taken care of exceptionally on an individual basis.

Dog training is about fostering the bond between family and pet. At the Veterinary Village, we believe dog training is much more than obeying commands and performing tricks. It is the invaluable process of introducing a new language as a tool to reach across the speech/species barrier. This allows for a better understanding of what each other needs, feels, and expects from the other. We believe a well-trained dog is an emotionally and physically healthier being that will live in harmony and comfort as a beloved member of the family.
Behavior Modification is the systematic approach to changing behavior. Unlike obedience training that trains a dog to perform specific actions when requested, behavior modification looks to change a dog’s reaction to situations, persons, things, etc., ultimately changing the way a dog thinks, feels, and acts. It is important in behavior modification to focus on the why and when a dog acts inappropriately in order to effectively change their behavior and set them up for success.
It is important for people to understand that in both dog training and behavior modification classes, many times it is our human actions that set the tone for our dog's actions/reactions. It takes equal effort on both parts, the master and the dog, to see successful changes in behavior. Be prepared to work every day and every week with your dog and not just use the hour long session as your “training” / “modification” time. It's a bit like prepping for a test- the more time you spend studying over the long term, as opposed to the night before, the better your results will be!
