  • Naming a new pet — whether it's a puppy or kitten you acquired from a breeder or an older dog or cat you've adopted from a shelter — is an important way to make that animal part of the family. In this Vetstreet video, trainer Mikkel Becker shows you how to quickly teach your pet to respond to his name in just a few easy steps.
  • Is your dog a door dasher? Does he drag you through the door or make a run for it as soon as the door opens? Trainer Mikkel Becker teaches you the fundamental tools you need to train your dog to wait at the door until released.
  • Cats have a reputation for being picky eaters, and some of that is deserved. In some cases, though, a cat who isn’t interested in eating may be sick. So how can you tell the difference, and what can you do if your cat is picky? Dr. Marty Becker explains the signs to watch for and offers tips for getting your finicky feline back to her healthy eating habits.
  • Dr. Patty Khuly decodes why your indoor cat makes a curious chattering sound while staring at birds outside the window.
  • A dog treadmill can be an excellent tool for getting your dog much-needed exercise when regular walks aren’t an option. Dog trainer Mikkel Becker shows you how to teach your dog to navigate the treadmill. 

Of course, the treadmill is never a replacement for getting your dog outside. Dogs still need interaction outside the home, which can be done with ventures to the dog park, having a dog walker come over on occasion, or getting your dog enrolled in doggy day care or a training class.
