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
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.
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.
