When a dog owner has a pet that is unruly, they can take
the canine to a training school, where experienced trainers
examine the dog for possible medical problems, and expose
him to a consistent training program in which the dog can
learn commands and appropriate behavior. But what about an
exotic animal? What does an exotic pet owner do when their
baby panther, tiger, or bear bites, scratches or otherwise
behaves in a way that will become dangerous as they grow up?
Vanishing Species Wildlife's Socialization Program is the
answer. At the Vanishing Species facilities, a dedicated team
of staff members work with the animal, searching for reasons
for the animal's behavior if necessary, and modifying bad
habits through positive reinforcement techniques. This saves
the exotic pet owner from having to sell or give away their
beloved animal, while protecting the animal from the consequences
of biting or scratching as an adult.
