Dog You Want, Keeping
the Dog You Find

physiology, animal behavior, bioethics, and wildlife
ecology on the college level, and courses in the

behavior for the general public. In addition to doing
private behavior/bond client consultations primarily
on a referral basis, she serves as a consultant to
non-profit and for-profit organizations regarding
animal-related issues.

Dr. Milani has formally and informally discussed
canine and feline care and behavioral problems with
thousands of owners and professionals at shows
and events, including those in San Francisco, Los
