Chris is Executive Director, Board Chair and co-founder with Dr. Dodman of the Center for Canine Behavior Studies, Inc. The Center was established with the primary purpose to better the lives of all dogs through behavior research that will help keep dogs in their homes for life.
2016 Humane Society data estimated that 30% to 40% of relinquished pets were surrendered due to behavior problems and each year approximately 3.3 million dogs enter U.S. shelters and adoption centers—about 1 in 5 is euthanized. Chris and Nick believe that reducing the killing of healthy dogs, and to continue to reduce canine euthanasia overall requires finding PRE-EMPTIVE PREVENTIVE solutions to address behavior issues and deteriorating bonds before they end in relinquishment.
Chris’ professional career included Chase Manhattan Asia Limited (Hong Kong) as Vice President and Managing Director of Chase Asia’s Private Bank Investment Banking group, and Manufacturers Hanover Trust (NYC). Chris is also the owner of Bingham Brook Partners, LLC, a business development, marketing and consulting company that has provided services since 2002.
