Our Mission

Animal Learning Systems’ mission is to help families achieve a human–companion animal bond experience that is rich with purpose and value, by providing practical, humane, and affordable solutions for companion dog training, enhancing the psychological well-being of companion dogs and their living environments, and providing behavior therapy for challenging companion animals of all species.

Founded by James F. Lessenberry, an animal behaviorist, Animal Learning Systems is built on a solid academic foundation of biologic and environmental influences on behavior. He has been helping families and their pets for more than 30 years.

Why We’re Different

We didn’t come to animal behavior and training as a hobby or a vocation learned through on-the-job training. And, we are not a franchise. Our dedicated professional staff are well educated and degreed people who apply the sciences of psychology and biology, learning and motivation, behavioral physiology, genetics, and behavioral pharmacology to the intersection of companion animals and our modern lifestyles.

Ours is a holistic approach, integrating the needs of people and their animals, the capacities of both, environmental constraints, and bio-medical considerations.

We don’t tell you how to live with your pet… we give you the ability to enjoy a companion that lives acceptably with you.
