Own a rambunctious pup? The Keep the L.O.V.E. Alive Behavior Express Tour can help. The tour’s goal is to raise awareness about — and, most importantly, reduce — the number of badly behaved pets that are abandoned or euthanized.

Here’s what the Behavior Express wants you to know:

• You can save pets’ lives by solving their solving behavior problems.
• There are medical options to modify and treat behavior problems.
• It’s important to visit a vet to help choose the best behavior treatment plan.

The Behavior Express will make stops in six cities to host Pet Fairs where you’ll find local veterinarians with educational booths; an appearance by “America’s Veterinarian” Dr. Marty Becker; nationally recognized veterinary behaviorists, including Dr. Debra Horwitz; and a mini-science fair about animal pheromones and how they can help improve behavioral problems. Also on tap: music, local celebrities and free giveaways.

In addition, you’ll be able to buy “Paws for a Cause” at $1 each. The tour will display the “paws” in each city to demonstrate pet owner generosity. Tour T-shirts will also be sold. All money will be put back into local communities to support shelter efforts.
