About Dr. Lincoln

Dr. Lincoln has practiced veterinary medicine in the Cleveland area since 1990. With behavior medicine as a primary interest, she cared for patients with behavior issues part-time throughout the years.

As she became more involved in this area and realized the tremendous need, she followed her passion and began making Play To Behave her full-time work. Now she can address behavior issues online, which has become the majority of her work and also, in the home. She finds that dogs and cats are more relaxed both online and in the home so she can see first-hand how management can be improved.
