suz-dan-headDr. Suzanne Hetts and Dr. Dan Estep are certified by the Animal Behavior Society as Applied Animal Behaviorists.  They co-own Animal Behavior Associates, Inc, that for over 30 years was located in Denver, Colorado.  We now reside in Sun City AZ.   Drs. Hetts and Estep are award winning speakers, educators, and authors and have helped thousands of pet owners improve their pets’ behavior and their relationships with them.

Suzanne and Dan consult with major corporations in the pet industry, are internationally recognized experts in animal behavior, and have lectured on four continents to pet owners and pet professionals.  Drs. Estep and Hetts work with veterinarians, dog trainers, humane societies, personal injury attorneys to help them understand and work with animal issues.

Their publications and videos are used in nationwide training programs for pet professionals and pet owners.  Dan and Suzanne are currently “empty pet-sters”, having lost their diva-dog, Irish setter Coral in December of 2016.  To avoid missing out on sharing life with a dog, they currently provide custom, individual “in-our-home” pet sitting and boarding services exclusively to one family’s pets at a time.
