Being able to give appropriate behavioural advice can reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring or help owners deal with problems effectively. This is important both for the welfare of the animal and also for maintaining the pet-owner bond which helps to keep pets in the home. Behavioural awareness can also improve how animals are handled and managed in the veterinary surgery, helping to ensure they remain happy to come into, and be handled in, the surgery. This makes it easier to give them the veterinary care they need, encouraging owners to remain bonded to your practice and to bring their pets in for treatment when it is needed.<br />\nFocusing on dogs, this day will cover the most important aspects of behaviour at different stages of life from before birth through puppyhood, adolescence, adulthood and into old age. We will include plenty of practical strategies to help you support your canine clients, including breeders and owners, to ensure the well-being of their dogs and reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring.<br />\nThis day is aimed at enabling vets and nurses in general practice to provide a whole practice behavioural support package for dogs and their owners.<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\n<strong>Speakers</strong>:<br />\n<strong>Elaine Henley:</strong>&nbsp;Advice for breeders - Care of the bitch and pups from before birth and during early puppyhood<br />\n<strong>Claire Hargrave</strong>:&nbsp;Pups - From entering new home until around 20 weeks of age<br />\n<strong>Helen Zulch</strong>: From puberty to maturity<br />\n<strong>Caroline Warnes:&nbsp;</strong>Behaviour in elderly dogs<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\n<strong>Conference \'Nitty Gritty\'</strong><br />\n<strong>Prices</strong><br />\nVeterinary Surgeons and Standard non-Member Early Bird rate (to 25 August 2017): &pound;80<br />\nAPBC Member Early Bird rate (to 25 August 2017): &pound;60<br />\nVeterinary Surgeons and Standard non-member price: &pound;90<br />\nAPBC member price: &pound;70<br />\nVeterinary Nurse with Bursary: &pound;75 - APBC has made available a limited number of bursary places to reduce the cost of the event for veterinary nurses.

Part one - from initial contact up to an including the first consultation<br />\nIn this first of two practical and pragmatic webinars Sara is going to take us through the key things she has learnt from Jean Donaldson and The Academy for Dog Trainers on being &lsquo;successful with clients&rsquo;, which means getting good outcomes AND feeling job satisfaction. Feeling burned out? Wondering why you bother? You need a re-boot; these are the two webinars for you! In chronological order, Sara will take you from the point of initial contact up to and including the nitty gritty of the first consultation - from phone calls and e mails to questionnaires and history taking, and from selecting the right behaviour modification techniques to communicating those to the client and coaching their physical skills. She will mostly be talking about dogs but the information will be equally relevant to other species and to those running classes. The two webinars will work very well together but can also function separately as they are self-contained.<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\nSara is a registered veterinary surgeon who spent nine years in full time small animal practice before switching to pet behaviour and training where she has worked for the last 15 years. In addition to her degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, she is an honours graduate of Jean Donaldson&rsquo;s Academy for Dog Trainers, and has a City &amp; Guilds qualification in teaching adult learners. She is a full member of the APBC, and an ABTC registered veterinary behaviourist and clinical animal behaviourist. She is a committed reward based trainer with a keen interest in both the welfare of the pet and the comfort of the client.&nbsp;<br />\n&nbsp;<br />\nPrice: APBC members &pound;10 Non-members &pound;30<br />\nPLEASE NOTE YOUR AUTOMATED BOOKING CONFIRMATION WILL INCLUDE THE LOG IN YOU NEED TO VIEW THE WEBINAR.

Wondering why you bother? You need a re-boot; these are the two webinars for you! Having done the consultation it&rsquo;s now time for the dreaded report - Sara no longer dreads hers - find out why! During the follow up period when they get the &lsquo;it&rsquo;s not working&rsquo; phone call many practitioners seem to fall apart and go looking for obscure methods of treatment and training when in fact the answer lies in poor client compliance. Sara will cover how to identify and deal with this and keep the client on side until resolution of the case.

Upcoming Events

  • APBC: Behaviour Essentials for Veterinary Practices: Effective strategies to support your canine clients throughout their lifetimes, from pups to pensioners

    25/10/2017-25/10/2017

    Venue: Holiday Inn Coventry M6 J2, Hinckley Road, Walsgrave, Coventry CV2 2HP

    Behaviour essentials for veterinary practices: effective strategies to support your canine clients throughout their lifetimes, from pups to pensioners.
    Understanding behaviour can benefit veterinary practices in many ways. Being able to give appropriate behavioural advice can reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring or help owners deal with problems effectively. This is important both for the welfare of the animal and also for maintaining the pet-owner bond which helps to keep pets in the home. Behavioural awareness can also improve how animals are handled and managed in the veterinary surgery, helping to ensure they remain happy to come into, and be handled in, the surgery. This makes it easier to give them the veterinary care they need, encouraging owners to remain bonded to your practice and to bring their pets in for treatment when it is needed.
    Focusing on dogs, this day will cover the most important aspects of behaviour at different stages of life from before birth through puppyhood, adolescence, adulthood and into old age. We will include plenty of practical strategies to help you support your canine clients, including breeders and owners, to ensure the well-being of their dogs and reduce the chances of behaviour problems occurring.
    This day is aimed at enabling vets and nurses in general practice to provide a whole practice behavioural support package for dogs and their owners.
     
    Speakers:
    Elaine Henley: Advice for breeders - Care of the bitch and pups from before birth and during early puppyhood
    Claire Hargrave: Pups - From entering new home until around 20 weeks of age

  • Success with Clients! Part 1 (of 2)

    31/10/2017-31/10/2017

    Venue: On your computer, anywhere. 8pm to 9.30pm.

    Presented by Sara Davies
    Success with Clients! Part one - from initial contact up to an including the first consultation
    In this first of two practical and pragmatic webinars Sara is going to take us through the key things she has learnt from Jean Donaldson and The Academy for Dog Trainers on being ‘successful with clients’, which means getting good outcomes AND feeling job satisfaction. Feeling burned out? Wondering why you bother? You need a re-boot; these are the two webinars for you! In chronological order, Sara will take you from the point of initial contact up to and including the nitty gritty of the first consultation - from phone calls and e mails to questionnaires and history taking, and from selecting the right behaviour modification techniques to communicating those to the client and coaching their physical skills. She will mostly be talking about dogs but the information will be equally relevant to other species and to those running classes. The two webinars will work very well together but can also function separately as they are self-contained.
     
    Sara is a registered veterinary surgeon who spent nine years in full time small animal practice before switching to pet behaviour and training where she has worked for the last 15 years. In addition to her degree in Veterinary Medicine and Surgery, she is an honours graduate of Jean Donaldson’s Academy for Dog Trainers, and has a City & Guilds qualification in teaching adult learners. She is a full member of the APBC, and an ABTC registered veterinary behaviourist and clinical animal behaviourist. She is a committed reward based trainer with a keen interest in both the welfare of the pet and the comfort of the client. 
     
    Price: APBC members £10 Non-members £30

    Success with Clients! Part two - from report writing to the ‘it’s not working’ phone call!
    In this second of two practical and pragmatic webinars Sara is going to take us through the key things she has learnt from Jean Donaldson and The Academy for Dog Trainers on being ‘successful with clients’, which means getting good outcomes AND feeling job satisfaction.
    Feeling burned out? Wondering why you bother? You need a re-boot; these are the two webinars for you! Having done the consultation it’s now time for the dreaded report - Sara no longer dreads hers - find out why! During the follow up period when they get the ‘it’s not working’ phone call many practitioners seem to fall apart and go looking for obscure methods of treatment and training when in fact the answer lies in poor client compliance. Sara will cover how to identify and deal with this and keep the client on side until resolution of the case. She will mostly be talking about dogs but the information will be equally relevant to other species and to those running classes. You don’t need to have attended the first webinar to enjoy this one as each is self-contained.
