This site was last updated Saturday, May 8, 2010 . Most of the pages can be accessed from the navigation menus to the left and top of this page, and from links within those main category pages. For an ordered list of all files on the site, please see our Site Map.


The primary focus of this site is to help owners of dogs with a neurologically based behavioral disorder such as Compulsive Tail Chasing learn more about these issues and find out where they need to go to get help. We also provide a support group hosted by Yahoo! Groups where people can share their experiences with other owners of affected dogs. 

Another goal of this site is to provide details on the Bull Terrier Compulsive Tail Chasing study coordinated by Dr. Alice Moon-Fanelli at Tufts. Dr. Moon-Fanelli, who has spent over a decade studying spinning and helping affected dogs, has made available to us all the necessary forms and information for those interested in participating in the study.

Not Just for Bull Terriers... 

While much of the information on this site is geared towards Bull Terriers and the neurological disorders most common to this breed, problems such as Sudden Onset Aggression and Canine Compulsive Disorders also affect many other breeds. Our Yahoo! Group--which, to the best of our knowledge, is the only resource of its' kind for any breed at this time-- is open everyone and we have quite a few members who have breeds other than Bull Terriers. 

Please Help!

Dr. Alice Moon-Fanelli needs  Bull Terriers to take part in the Compulsive Tail Chasing study. We implore all owners and breeders to take the time to help us find the cause of this disorder - dogs' lives depend on it.
