In this video, we discuss the importance of consistency and keeping to your pet’s routine during the COVID-19 pandemic.
You can help your pet combat any anxiety, stress, and frustration they might be feeling by keeping to their routine and doing the things that you normally do at the time you normally would have done them.
Remember that they are feeling stressed too: reward the behaviors you want and do not punish your pets, as this will make things worse.
San Diego Humane Society is here for you. We offer virtual classes and have a Behavior Helpline.

Behavior Helpline: Contact our Behavior Team
For behavior questions, please contact our Behavior Helpline either by calling 619-299-7012, ext. 2244, emailing email@example.com or filling out our Ask a Trainer form. San Diego Humane Society Adopters can fill out the Post Adoption Consultation form to schedule their troubleshooting session. We aim to respond within 7 days, but responses may take up to 2 weeks. Thank you for your patience!
Note: Due to the potential for serious injury, canine and feline aggression are best handled by a professional who specializes in aggressive behaviors. Because phone or email counseling is inadequate for addressing serious behavior concerns, we ask that you contact a qualified professional for help. Please refer to the list of behavior resources here.
Questions About Public Classes
San Diego Humane Society offers training classes and resources to address a variety of needs for companion animals.
Our training philosophy is based on the behavioral science concepts of positive reinforcement. Training your pet using these concepts will not only help them learn new behaviors more quickly, it will also strengthen the bond you share.
Our website includes a current schedule of training classes or call 619-279-5961.
