Mary is also an Animal Behavior Consultant. An animal behavior consultant is a practitioner of applied behavior analysis to help correct behavior problems in animals, usually companion animals. Animal behavior consultants are usually employed to identify the cause of a behavior problem, to develop an intervention plan to change the problem behavior, and to help the owners learn how to execute that plan.] Animal behavior consultants are distinct from animal trainers, in that their primary goal is not to train an animal to have basic manners or to perform a task, such as agility competition for dogs, but to mitigate behaviors that are problems for the animal’s owner. Animal behavior consultants may also be known as pet behavior counselors.
